How to Handle Your Air Conditioner When Its Frozen

Your air conditioner works tirelessly to keep indoor temperatures comfortable. But from time to time things don’t work properly and ice forms in or around your cooling equipment. This might negatively affect important components or even stop your system from running.

If you’ve uncovered ice on your air conditioner, it’s a great idea to get in touch with our cooling Experts at 925-384-1303. Our repair techs are the best around when it comes to air conditioning repair in Concord.

While there are many reasons ice can appear in or around your AC system, the most frequent culprit is a lack of preventive servicing. Taking small steps to keep your air conditioner clean will go a long way in combating the formation of ice.

Some of these helpful tasks include the following:

Changing the Air Filter

If your air filter is dirty or clogged, air won’t move over the evaporator coil, which is a crucial step in the cooling process. This affects refrigerant inside the coil and produces extra moisture, which turns to ice. We suggest looking at your filter every month and replacing it when you can’t see light through it.

Cleaning the Coil

Even if you switch your air filter consistently, a dirty coil might also ice over. Freschi Service Experts technicians will routinely clean the evaporator coil as part of our comprehensive maintenance process. We advise scheduling air conditioning maintenance every year to keep your coil clean and to lower the chance of breakdowns.

Checking Refrigerant Levels

Without the required amount of refrigerant, the evaporator coil can’t hold 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 well-versed in patching up these leaks and getting your air conditioner at the correct refrigerant level.

Tuning Up Electrical Wiring

Bad wiring will affect the blower motor. Without steady airflow, the temperature can drop, and ice will form. Professional HVAC technicians like everyone at Freschi Service Experts will evaluate all electrical components during routine maintenance to make certain nothing is damaged. Bad wiring will be swapped out as necessary.

Freschi Service Experts designs comprehensive maintenance membership packages to boost your air conditioner’s effectiveness. With routine service visits, the likelihood for serious problems is greatly reduced.

Ice on Your Air Conditioner Can Also Indicate There’s a Bigger Problem

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 utilizes R-22 refrigerant, you’ll be out of luck if you need more refrigerant, since it’s no longer being distributed.
