How to Handle Your Air Conditioner When It Freezes

Your air conditioner works day and night to keep indoor temperatures stable. But occasionally things don’t work right and ice forms in or around your cooling system. This may harm expensive components or even stop your air conditioner from running.

If you’ve found ice on your air conditioner, it’s a wise idea to get in touch with our cooling Experts at 226-270-1164. Our AC specialists are the best name in service when it comes to air conditioning repair in London.

While there are several reasons ice can appear in or around your air conditioner, the most common culprit is a lack of preventive maintenance. Taking some easy steps to keep your air conditioner clean will go a long way in stopping the formation of ice.

Some of these helpful tasks include the following:

Putting in a New 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 collects extra moisture, which turns to ice. We recommend inspecting your filter every month and replacing it when you can’t see light through it.

Cleaning the Coil

Even if you change your air filter regularly, a dirty coil can also ice over. Roy Inch & Sons Home Services by Enercare specialists will thoroughly clean the evaporator coil as part of our detailed maintenance process. We advise arranging air conditioning maintenance annually to keep your coil clean and to reduce the chance of breakdowns.

Examining Refrigerant Levels

Without the required amount of refrigerant, the evaporator coil can’t absorb as much heat and can ice up. As a result, your home will be hotter and unpleasant. The most likely cause of reduced refrigerant is a leak. Our Experts are experienced in identifying these leaks and getting your air conditioner at the base refrigerant level.

Maintaining Electrical Wiring

Faulty wiring will interrupt the blower motor. Without constant airflow, the temperature may drop, and ice will form. Qualified HVAC technicians like the ones at Roy Inch & Sons Home Services by Enercare will review all electrical components during routine maintenance to ensure nothing is damaged. Bad wiring will be swapped out as necessary.

Ice on Your Air Conditioner May Also Show There’s a Bigger Situation

There’s a chance ice on your air conditioner is pointing to a larger problem. No air conditioner runs forever. And if you have an older one that requires R-22 refrigerant, you’ll be out of luck if you need more refrigerant, since it’s no longer being produced.
