If your air handler has an Energy Star label and a high SEER rating it will help cut down on your energy costs. The higher the rating, the more energy it will save.

All HVAC units include an air handler to circulate the air whether it's hot or cold. The air handler is the part found indoors. Without it your air conditioning unit isn't really doing anything for you as the cold air isn't getting where you want it.
