Answer: An air handler circulates conditioned air produced by heating and cooling equipment throughout your home. Along with the air handler, it is possible to filter, humidify or dehumidify the air stream as needed. It’s a large metal box containing a blower, heating or cooling elements, filter racks or chambers, sound attenuators, and dampers. Air handlers usually connect to a ductwork ventilation system that distributes the conditioned air through the building and returns it to the AHU.
