Why Your Air Conditioner Has Frozen and How to Manage It

Your air conditioner works around the clock to keep indoor temperatures pleasant. But occasionally things don’t work like they’re supposed to and ice collects in or around your cooling system. This can damage important components or even stop your AC system from running.

If you’ve uncovered ice on your air conditioner, it’s a smart idea to reach out to our cooling Experts at 239-908-6991. Our technicians are the best in town when it comes to air conditioning repair in Naples.

While there are several reasons ice might collect in or around your AC system, the most frequent culprit is a lack of preventive maintenance. Taking small steps to keep your air conditioner in working shape will go a long way in combating the formation of ice.

Some of these useful 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 vital 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 each month and replacing it when you can’t see light through it.

Cleaning the Coil

Even if you swap your air filter on a regular basis, a dirty coil can also ice over. Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning specialists will routinely clean the evaporator coil as part of our total maintenance process. We advise arranging air conditioning maintenance once a year to keep your coil clean and to reduce the chance of breakdowns.

Checking Refrigerant Levels

Without the right supply of refrigerant, the evaporator coil can’t take in as much heat and might ice up. As a result, your home will be hotter and uncomfortable. The most common origin of inadequate refrigerant is a leak. Our Experts are well-versed in locating these leaks and getting your air conditioner at the required refrigerant level.

Servicing Electrical Wiring

Bad wiring will affect the blower motor. Without constant airflow, the temperature can drop, and ice will form. Knowledgeable HVAC technicians like the ones at Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning will examine all electrical components during routine maintenance to make sure nothing is wrong. Bad wiring will be exchanged as necessary.

Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning provides thorough maintenance membership packages to maximize your air conditioner’s effectiveness. With routine service visits, the risk for severe problems is greatly reduced.

Ice on Your Air Conditioner May Also Show There’s a More Pressing Issue

It’s possible ice on your air conditioner is evidence of a larger problem. No air conditioner lives forever. And if you have an older one that needs R-22 refrigerant, you’ll be out of luck if you need more refrigerant, since it’s no longer being produced.
