Your air conditioner works tirelessly to keep indoor temperatures stable. But from time to time things don’t work properly and ice builds up in or around your cooling unit. This might damage expensive components or even stop your AC system from running.
If you’ve discovered ice on your air conditioner, it’s a good idea to call our cooling Experts at . Our AC specialists are the best around when it comes to air conditioning repair in the U.S..
While there are several reasons ice can form in or around your AC system, the most likely culprit is a lack of preventive service. Taking simple steps to keep your air conditioner in working shape 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 struggles to move over the evaporator coil, which is a central step in the cooling process. This affects refrigerant inside the coil and results in extra moisture, which turns to ice. We recommend reviewing your filter every month and replacing it when you can’t see light through it.
Even if you swap your air filter on a regular basis, a dirty coil could also ice over. Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing technicians will routinely clean the evaporator coil as part of our total maintenance process. We advise scheduling air conditioning maintenance every year to keep your coil clean and to minimize the chance of breakdowns.
Without the required amount of refrigerant, the evaporator coil can’t take in as much heat and might ice up. As a result, your home will be hotter and less comfortable. The most common culprit of reduced refrigerant is a leak. Our Experts are well-trained in locating these leaks and getting your air conditioner at the right refrigerant level.
Bad wiring will disrupt the blower motor. Without stable airflow, the temperature could drop, and ice will form. Professional HVAC technicians like the ones at Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing will review all electrical components during routine maintenance to make certain nothing is out of place. 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 performance. With routine service visits, the chance for serious problems is greatly reduced.
It’s possible ice on your air conditioner is pointing to a larger problem. No air conditioner runs forever. And if you have an older one that utilizes R-22 refrigerant, you’ll be out of luck if you need more refrigerant, since it’s no longer being produced.
If you’re consistently repairing your air conditioner and bills are piling up, it could be time to replace it. We proudly offer affordable air conditioning replacement in the U.S.. Our installation process is straightforward and stress free, so you can get back to your normal routine fast.
