Your air conditioner works around the clock to keep indoor temperatures stable. But occasionally things don’t work properly and ice builds up in or around your cooling system. This might damage expensive components or even stop your air conditioning from running.
If you’ve uncovered ice on your air conditioner, it’s a good idea to reach out to our cooling Experts at . Our technicians are the best around when it comes to air conditioning repair in the U.S..
While there are lots of reasons ice can collect in or around your air conditioning, the most frequent 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 important tasks include the following:
If your air filter is dirty or clogged, air can’t move over the evaporator coil, which is a key 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 once a month and replacing it when you can’t see light through it.
Even if you change your air filter regularly, a dirty coil might also ice over. Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing technicians will regularly clean the evaporator coil as part of our detailed maintenance process. We recommend requesting air conditioning maintenance once a year to keep your coil clean and to lower 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 unpleasant. The most likely source of reduced refrigerant is a leak. Our Experts are well-versed in identifying these leaks and getting your air conditioner at the correct refrigerant level.
Faulty wiring will interrupt the blower motor. Without steady airflow, the temperature may drop, and ice will form. Certified HVAC technicians like everyone at Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing will examine all electrical components during routine maintenance to ensure nothing is out of place. Bad wiring will be redone as necessary.
Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing provides detail-oriented maintenance membership packages to maximize your air conditioner’s effectiveness. With routine service visits, the likelihood for serious problems is greatly reduced.
There’s a chance ice on your air conditioner is evidence of a larger problem. No air conditioner works 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 distributed.
