What Is an Air Handler?

So, what is an air handler? If you have a split system, which means that your air conditioner has an indoor and an outdoor unit, the part inside of your home is the air handler. The air handler has a big job: to handle–by circulating–the air within your home. The biggest job of an air handler is to make sure that all the cool air coming through the air handler reaches every corner of your home. 

Parts of an Air Handler

There are three major components that make up an air handler, all of which can require maintenance, repair, and replacement over time. These parts include:

  • Coils. The job of the coils is to cool the air that’s in your home. Essentially, warm arm within the home passes over the refrigerant coil, which then cools the air. The cooler air can then be recirculated through the home. 
  • Air filter. The air filter has one important job: to filter the air before it is blown through your home. This can help to catch dust and other particulates that could be irritating to the airway. 
  • Blower. The blower circulates the air–after it has been cooled and filtered–through your indoor space. This is done through a home’s ventilation system, i.e. ducts. 

What Can Go Wrong?

An air handler can experience breakdowns, just like all other parts of an air conditioning system or any other appliance with working parts. Common air handler problems that our technicians have encountered include and clogged coils, dirty and damaged filters, blower motor failure. Sometimes, other issues that aren’t directly related to the air handler, such as dirty ducts, can reduce the efficiency of an air handler.
