When the weather is hot, the air handler circulates air through your home, which helps uphold correct comfort levels within your home. Some types of air handlers even have heat strips to boost the heating power or your heat pump when the weather gets chillier.

A well-maintained and functioning air handler can help lessen utility bills and a deliver a longer life span for your split system or heat pump.
