Sunland Air Conditioning: What is an Air Handler?

Have you ever wondered what is an air handler? Ok, maybe not, but to help you understand more abou your Sunland Air Conditioning, American Air Conditioning and Heating will explain the air handler functions. Some of our customers do ask these types of questions.

The Air Handler is basically a piece of equipment that handles the air movement within your cooling system. They blow the air over the coils. After the air is conditioned it blows through the ductwork. In order to heat and cool your home efficiently and comfortable, the handler must be matched to the size of your HVAC system.

This is part of the reason it is so important to have an air conditioner that is the proper size for the space. All the components of the system work together to make sure that the air is properly cooled. The A/C system’s compressor is the unit that sits outside your home. If its capacity is a 4-ton design, then your air handler should be able to handle that much air capacity. So, at minimum, the handler should be a 4-ton system.
