Your air conditioner works day and night to keep indoor temperatures pleasant. But from time to time things don’t work like they’re supposed to and ice forms in or around your cooling unit. This might negatively affect key components or even stop your air conditioner from running.
If you’ve found ice on your air conditioner, it’s a good idea to contact our cooling Experts at . Our repair techs are the best in town when it comes to air conditioning repair in the U.S..
While there are multiple reasons ice might form in or around your cooling system, the most common culprit is a lack of preventive service. Taking some easy steps to keep your air conditioner in good condition will go a long way in preventing the formation of ice.
Some of these helpful tasks include the following:
If your air filter is dirty or clogged, air can’t move over the evaporator coil, which is a central step in the cooling process. This affects refrigerant inside the coil and produces extra moisture, which turns to ice. We recommend reviewing your filter each month and replacing it when you can’t see light through it.
Even if you switch your air filter regularly, a dirty coil may also ice over. Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing experts will thoroughly clean the evaporator coil as part of our comprehensive maintenance process. We advise arranging air conditioning maintenance annually to keep your coil clean and to minimize the chance of breakdowns.
Without enough refrigerant, the evaporator coil can’t transfer as much heat and may ice up. As a result, your home will be hotter and uncomfortable. The most likely origin of reduced refrigerant is a leak. Our Experts are experienced in locating these leaks and getting your air conditioner at the correct refrigerant level.
Faulty wiring will affect the blower motor. Without consistent airflow, the temperature can drop, and ice will form. Professional HVAC technicians like everyone at Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing will check all electrical components during routine maintenance to ensure nothing is damaged. Bad wiring will be exchanged as necessary.
Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing provides comprehensive maintenance membership packages to maximize your air conditioner’s effectiveness. With routine service visits, the likelihood for major problems is greatly reduced.
There’s a chance ice on your air conditioner is pointing to a larger problem. No air conditioner lives forever. And if you have an older one that runs on R-22 refrigerant, you’ll be out of luck if you need more refrigerant, since it’s no longer being manufactured.
