Your air conditioner works hard to keep indoor temperatures comfy. But from time to time things don’t work properly and ice forms in or around your cooling unit. This can harm crucial 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 contact our cooling Experts at . Our AC specialists are the best in the business when it comes to air conditioning repair in the U.S..
While there are many reasons ice could form in or around your AC system, the most frequent culprit is a lack of preventive service. Taking simple steps to keep your air conditioner in working shape will go a long way in stopping the formation of ice.
Some of these routine tasks include the following:
If your air filter is dirty or clogged, air struggles to move over the evaporator coil, which is a vital step in the cooling process. This affects refrigerant inside the coil and collects extra moisture, which turns to ice. We recommend reviewing your filter once a month and replacing it when you can’t see light through it.
Even if you swap your air filter regularly, a dirty coil could also ice over. Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing experts will regularly clean the evaporator coil as part of our detailed maintenance process. We advise scheduling air conditioning maintenance annually to keep your coil clean and to reduce the chance of breakdowns.
Without enough refrigerant, the evaporator coil can’t absorb as much heat and can ice up. As a result, your home will be hotter and stuffy. The most likely origin of reduced refrigerant is a leak. Our Experts are well-versed in resolving these leaks and getting your air conditioner at the required refrigerant level.
Damaged wiring will affect the blower motor. Without steady airflow, the temperature could drop, and ice will form. Qualified HVAC technicians like the ones at Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing will review all electrical components during routine maintenance to make sure nothing is out of place. Bad wiring will be exchanged as necessary.
Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing offers extensive maintenance membership packages to increase your air conditioner’s performance. With routine service visits, the risk for major problems is greatly reduced.
Sometimes ice on your air conditioner is evidence of a larger problem. No air conditioner runs 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.
If you’re constantly repairing your air conditioner and bills are stacking up, it could be time to upgrade. We proudly offer affordable air conditioning replacement in the U.S.. Our installation process is fast and stress free, so you can get back to your normal routine right away.
