Does the air flowing from your supply registers suddenly appear not cold enough? Look at the indoor part of your air conditioner. This part is housed in your furnace or air handler, if you use a heat pump. If there’s water dripping onto the floor, there might be crystals on the evaporator coil. The AC coil in the unit might have frosted over. You’ll need to defrost it before it can cool your residence again.
Here’s the things you should do. If you can’t get the coil frost-free, Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing is here to assist you with air conditioning repair in the U.S. backed by a 100% satisfaction guarantee.*
To begin—move the thermostat from “cool” to “off.” This prevents chilly refrigerant from going to the outdoor compressor, which could harm it and lead to an expensive repair.
After that, move the fan from “auto” to “on.” This produces hot airflow over the frozen coils to force them to defrost faster. Double check to set the cooling mode to “off” so the air conditioner doesn’t trigger a cooling cycle.
It might take under an hour or the majority of the day for the ice to defrost, depending on the extent of the accumulation. While you’re waiting, check the condensate pan underneath the AC unit. If the drain line is blocked, it might spill over as the ice melts, potentially creating water damage.
Not enough airflow is a prime cause for an AC to freeze up. Here’s how to figure out the problem:
If insufficient airflow doesn’t appear to be the trouble, then something else is causing your AC freeze up. If this is what’s going on, just letting it melt won’t repair the trouble. The evaporator coil is likely to freeze again unless you fix the main symptom. Get in touch with an HVAC tech to address troubles with your air conditioner, which could include:
