Air Handler / Fan Coil
What does a fan coil do?
When air conditioning your home, you need at least two things inside for the cooling to take place: a fan motor to pull air from your home via the return air duct, and an indoor coil to hold the chilled refrigerant sent from the air conditioner located outside.
The indoor coil is typically called an evaporator coil, and is mounted on top of the furnace. The fan motor is contained inside the furnace. Your furnace is actually a key part of your air conditioning system!
When using a heat pump only system, or if your home is heated via something other than a gas furnace, such as a radiant heat system, an air handler takes the place of the evaporator coil and the furnace. An air handler, or fan coil, is basically the combination of the coil from an evaporator coil, and the fan motor from a furnace. The air handler / fan coil is responsible for moving air through the coil to cool your indoor air in the summer, and heat it in the winter (when using a heat pump).
