Your air conditioner works constantly to keep indoor temperatures comfy. But sometimes things don’t work correctly and ice forms in or around your cooling unit. This can damage important components or even stop your air conditioning 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 different reasons ice might collect in or around your air conditioner, the most likely culprit is a lack of preventive maintenance. Taking some easy steps to keep your air conditioner clean will go a long way in halting the formation of ice.
Some of these useful 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 produces extra moisture, which turns to ice. We encourage inspecting your filter monthly and replacing it when you can’t see light through it.
Even if you change your air filter on a regular basis, a dirty coil might also ice over. Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing specialists will thoroughly clean the evaporator coil as part of our total maintenance process. We advise arranging air conditioning maintenance every year to keep your coil clean and to lower the chance of breakdowns.
Without enough refrigerant, the evaporator coil can’t transfer as much heat and could ice up. As a result, your home will be hotter and uncomfortable. The most likely cause of reduced refrigerant is a leak. Our Experts are well-versed in repairing these leaks and getting your air conditioner at the required refrigerant level.
Damaged wiring will disrupt the blower motor. Without stable airflow, the temperature can drop, and ice will form. Certified HVAC technicians like the ones at Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing will review all electrical components during routine maintenance to ensure nothing is out of place. Bad wiring will be replaced as necessary.
Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing offers comprehensive maintenance membership packages to enhance your air conditioner’s performance. With routine service visits, the chance for severe problems is greatly reduced.
There’s a chance ice on your air conditioner is evidence of a larger problem. No air conditioner lives forever. And if you have an older one that uses R-22 refrigerant, you’ll be out of luck if you need more refrigerant, since it’s no longer being produced.
If you’re repeatedly repairing your air conditioner and bills are adding up, it might be time to find a new one. 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 fast.
