There are a lot of reasons why your AC system freezes up.
Making sure the air filter isn’t clogged and airflow isn’t lowered are the only things you can safely fix on your own. If you need to put in a new the filter, you can accelerate the melting process by switching off the system and using the fan. If you have a heat pump, you can switch it to heat mode until the ice is gone.
After the ice disappears, switch the temperature back to normal. If your equipment freezes again, call Freschi Service Experts to fix the problem.
Here are several other reasons why your equipment could be freezing up.
Low refrigerant—A frozen system could be created by a refrigerant leak.
What leads to a leak?
- Fragile solder joints
- Friction from piping jarring against other parts
- Cracked valves
- Unsecured fittings
How long your unit has been working and the location of the leak play a part in whether you should repair or replace your AC system.
Filthy evaporator coil—Throughout the seasons, the evaporator coil becomes dirty and creates issues resembling a clogged filter. You’ll slowly receive lower airflow until your system freezes or halts cooling. You’ll need to contact Freschi Service Experts to fix the problem.
Broken blower motor or relay—A blower motor running at an inaccurate speed or not working at all can create freezing. It might also be irregular, running at maximum speed and decelerating after it heats up. Or a relay may force it to run one time and not the next. In either situation, you will need to get in touch with Freschi Service Experts to correct the issue.
