Should I buy a new Air Handler?

I have an old air handler (around 30 years) Model: York (Borg Warner) P2UGD12N08001A and a new condenser Model: Payne PA13NR030. I assume these are mismatched. I read that mismatches can be pretty bad..

My home warranty company replaced the condenser, but did not replace the air handler. They said I didn't need to, but after reading online I'm a little concerned about their decision.

you already know the answer--------- of course you need a new matching air handler especially if the thing is an antique (30 yrs old)

I don't know much about air conditioning, only what I've read online and got from this forum. How do I know which air handler's match my condensor?

If your system produces top notch performance, no need to change anything. Your question about how do you know which air handler match your system, here is my answer: if they perform well, they match. For a diy home owner(don't have HVAC tools), check these 4items: temp split, in house air flow, outside pipe and condenser air temp, and cycle time.
