A Trane heat pump next to a Trane air handler

Heat pump + air handler matched systems

A heat pump works together with your air handler to provide both heating and cooling for your home. In heating mode, a heat pump provides heat using only electricity — it doesn’t burn fuel to provide heat.

What does a heat pump do?

Unlike a furnace, a heat pump doesn’t burn fuel to make heat. It simply uses electricity to move heat from one place to another. A heat pump is an energy efficient way to cool your home in the summer and heat it in the winter.


Air handlers circulate conditioned air throughout your home

Matched in capacity and efficiency rating with the air conditioner, air handlers circulate conditioned air throughout your home. An air handler contains an inside coil and a blower fan, with the additional possibility of an auxiliary electric strip heater. Trane air handlers are available with multi-speed or variable-speed motors. Variable-speed models are known for soft starts, high humidity controls, variable airflow capacity, as well as the enhanced comfort mode, the Comfort-R™ airflow system.


Adding an air cleaner can also help reduce pollen, pet dander, dust, and smoke in your home

An air cleaner is integral part of a home comfort system. An air cleaner can filter dust and pollutants out of the air you breathe, and keeps your rugs and home furnishings cleaner as well. Reduced pollen, dust, pet dander, smoke, etc., could help reduce allergy and asthma discomfort. A Trane CleanEffects® Whole Home Air Cleaner air filtration system can remove up to 99.98%* of airborne particles that pass through the reusable filter.

*Based on third party testing of particle removal efficiency down to 0.3 microns (2005).
