Your air conditioner works hard to keep indoor temperatures stable. But occasionally things don’t work properly and ice forms in or around your cooling system. This can harm delicate components or even stop your air conditioner from running.
If you’ve stumbled upon ice on your air conditioner, it’s a good idea to call our cooling Experts at . Our technicians are the best in town when it comes to air conditioning repair in the U.S..
While there are several reasons ice may appear in or around your AC system, the most likely culprit is a lack of preventive servicing. Taking small steps to keep your air conditioner in good condition will go a long way in halting the formation of ice.
Some of these important tasks include the following:
If your air filter is dirty or clogged, air won’t move over the evaporator coil, which is a key step in the cooling process. This affects refrigerant inside the coil and results in extra moisture, which turns to ice. We recommend checking your filter monthly and replacing it when you can’t see light through it.
Even if you swap your air filter consistently, a dirty coil can also ice over. Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing technicians will routinely clean the evaporator coil as part of our detailed maintenance process. We suggest scheduling air conditioning maintenance every year to keep your coil clean and to lower the chance of breakdowns.
Without adequate refrigerant, the evaporator coil can’t transfer as much heat and can ice up. As a result, your home will be hotter and unpleasant. The most likely cause of insufficient refrigerant is a leak. Our Experts are well-versed in identifying these leaks and getting your air conditioner at the right refrigerant level.
Bad wiring will interrupt the blower motor. Without steady airflow, the temperature may drop, and ice will form. Qualified HVAC technicians like the ones at Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing will examine all electrical components during routine maintenance to ensure nothing is wrong. Bad wiring will be replaced as necessary.
Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing offers thorough maintenance membership packages to boost your air conditioner’s performance. With routine service visits, the chance for major problems is greatly reduced.
It’s possible ice on your air conditioner is evidence of a larger problem. No air conditioner works forever. And if you have an older one that uses R-22 refrigerant, you’ll be out of luck if you need more refrigerant, since it’s no longer being manufactured.
