Your air conditioner works around the clock to keep indoor temperatures pleasant. But sometimes things don’t work like they’re supposed to and ice collects in or around your cooling equipment. This may damage delicate components or even stop your AC system from running.
If you’ve stumbled upon ice on your air conditioner, it’s a wise 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 multiple reasons ice can build up in or around your air conditioner, the most frequent 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 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 key step in the cooling process. This affects refrigerant inside the coil and results in extra moisture, which turns to ice. We encourage inspecting your filter every month and replacing it when you can’t see light through it.
Even if you swap your air filter consistently, a dirty coil could also ice over. Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing experts will regularly clean the evaporator coil as part of our exhaustive maintenance process. We suggest arranging air conditioning maintenance every year to keep your coil clean and to reduce the chance of breakdowns.
Without adequate refrigerant, the evaporator coil can’t hold as much heat and could ice up. As a result, your home will be hotter and less comfortable. The most likely culprit of insufficient refrigerant is a leak. Our Experts are well-trained in repairing these leaks and getting your air conditioner at the right refrigerant level.
Damaged wiring will interrupt the blower motor. Without consistent airflow, the temperature could drop, and ice will form. Knowledgeable HVAC technicians like everyone at Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing will check all electrical components during routine maintenance to make certain nothing is damaged. Bad wiring will be exchanged as necessary.
Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing provides extensive maintenance membership packages to enhance your air conditioner’s efficiency. With routine service visits, the likelihood for serious problems is greatly reduced.
Sometimes ice on your air conditioner is evidence of 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 produced.
