An air handler teams up with your heating and cooling system to circulate air throughout your Salt Lake City home. Their primary responsibility is to keep the airflow moving.
But a good air handler can do so much more.
These components contain filters and other features designed to improve your indoor air quality (IAQ) and control the humidity levels inside your home. They allow you to create zone control systems that can lower your energy bills while increasing your comfort. Plus, some models allow for remote monitor and programming through a smartphone or tablet!
Our team at Friendly Home Services can help you choose the right air handler for your heating and cooling system. Serving homes and businesses in Salt Lake City and the surrounding areas, Friendly’s is your top choice in Utah for plumbing, electrical, and heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) services.
Air Handlers in Utah
More often than not, Utah homeowners will pair up an air handler with an air conditioner (AC) or heat pump. How is an air handler different than a furnace? Your furnace generates heat by burning fuel—it also has a built-in blower that circulates heat, along with the cold air from your central air conditioner.
Air handlers push the air around—they do not generate heat. A powerful blower inside the air handler moves the conditioned air from your air conditioner or heat pump into your home’s ductwork, where it then circulates to every room.
With a ductless system, also known as a mini split, you install multiple air handlers in the areas of your home where you want to create zones, allowing you to adjust a different temperature setting in each zone. Creating a zone control system is one of the most efficient ways to lower your energy costs while upgrading your comfort.
