Your air conditioner works day and night to keep indoor temperatures stable. But sometimes things don’t work like they should and ice appears in or around your cooling unit. This can damage important components or even stop your system from running.
If you’ve discovered ice on your air conditioner, it’s a great idea to call our cooling Experts at . Our technicians are the best name in service when it comes to air conditioning repair in the U.S..
While there are multiple reasons ice can form in or around your AC system, the most frequent culprit is a lack of preventive servicing. Taking simple steps to keep your air conditioner in good condition will go a long way in stopping the formation of ice.
Some of these helpful tasks include the following:
If your air filter is dirty or clogged, air won’t move over the evaporator coil, which is a central step in the cooling process. This affects refrigerant inside the coil and collects extra moisture, which turns to ice. We encourage looking at your filter once a month and replacing it when you can’t see light through it.
Even if you switch your air filter consistently, a dirty coil could also ice over. Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing technicians will thoroughly clean the evaporator coil as part of our comprehensive maintenance process. We suggest requesting air conditioning maintenance every year to keep your coil clean and to minimize the chance of breakdowns.
Without the required amount of refrigerant, the evaporator coil can’t transfer as much heat and might ice up. As a result, your home will be hotter and stuffy. The most likely source of reduced refrigerant is a leak. Our Experts are experienced in identifying these leaks and getting your air conditioner at the base refrigerant level.
Damaged wiring will interrupt the blower motor. Without steady airflow, the temperature can drop, and ice will form. Certified HVAC technicians like the ones at Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing will evaluate all electrical components during routine maintenance to make sure nothing is wrong. Bad wiring will be redone as necessary.
Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing offers extensive maintenance membership packages to enhance your air conditioner’s overall condition. With routine service visits, the risk for severe problems is greatly reduced.
Sometimes ice on your air conditioner is a result of a larger problem. No air conditioner works 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 produced.
