Air handlers are electric furnaces that are attached to a heat pump system in your home. They have electric coils or heating elements that provide heat to your home. Air handlers are also a source of emergency heat that helps kick-start your heating system if your home is cold and you want it to get warm very quickly.
The air handler also contains a blower that distributes air throughout your ductwork and into your home. Once your home has your desired amount of heat the Air handler regulates the temperature by turning the heating element on and off as needed. The air handler also provides emergency heat in the event that the heat pump is not operating correctly, keep in mind that this is not a good alternative heat source as it is very expensive for the heating coils to operate without the heat pump.
