Your air conditioner works constantly to keep indoor temperatures pleasant. But from time to time things don’t work correctly and ice collects in or around your cooling equipment. This can negatively affect key components or even stop your air conditioning from running.
If you’ve uncovered ice on your air conditioner, it’s a great idea to contact our cooling Experts at . Our repair techs are the best in town when it comes to air conditioning repair in the U.S..
While there are different reasons ice may form in or around your air conditioning, the most common culprit is a lack of preventive maintenance. Taking simple steps to keep your air conditioner in good condition will go a long way in preventing the formation of ice.
Some of these useful tasks include the following:
If your air filter is dirty or clogged, air won’t move over the evaporator coil, which is a central step in the cooling process. This affects refrigerant inside the coil and creates extra moisture, which turns to ice. We encourage checking your filter monthly and replacing it when you can’t see light through it.
Even if you replace your air filter consistently, a dirty coil can also ice over. Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing experts will regularly clean the evaporator coil as part of our comprehensive maintenance process. We recommend requesting air conditioning maintenance annually to keep your coil clean and to reduce the chance of breakdowns.
Without the required amount of refrigerant, the evaporator coil can’t take in as much heat and may ice up. As a result, your home will be hotter and less comfortable. The most common cause of insufficient refrigerant is a leak. Our Experts are well-trained in repairing these leaks and getting your air conditioner at the right refrigerant level.
Damaged wiring will affect the blower motor. Without steady airflow, the temperature may drop, and ice will form. Knowledgeable HVAC technicians like everyone at Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing will check all electrical components during routine maintenance to make certain nothing is wrong. Bad wiring will be swapped out as necessary.
Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing provides comprehensive maintenance membership packages to enhance your air conditioner’s overall condition. With routine service visits, the chance for major problems is greatly reduced.
Sometimes ice on your air conditioner is evidence of a larger problem. No air conditioner lives 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 manufactured.
