Air handlers are indoor units that are commonly combined with heat pumps to create all electric heating and cooling systems. Air handlers house evaporator coils and blower motors that move air through the coils and into your home. Typically air handlers have electric heat strips to match your home’s needs during the heating season warming the air and delivering it via your home’s duct system.
Miami Heating & Cooling offers variable speed units that provide higher efficiency and even humidity control.
When talking about a variable speed air handler, we’re speaking of the motor that controls the air handler’s fan. In a non-variable unit, the fan is either on full-speed or off. A variable speed air handler, on the other hand, is constantly running and transitions gradually from low and high speeds, depending on how much it’s needed. Even though a variable speed air handler is constantly running, it is usually doing so at a low level. This saves energy because your system doesn’t have to constantly turn on and off, and it spends much less time wasting energy at the highest level.
