Your air conditioner works hard to keep indoor temperatures comfy. But from time to time things don’t work correctly and ice appears in or around your cooling system. This can harm crucial components or even stop your system from running.
If you’ve discovered ice on your air conditioner, it’s a great idea to reach out to 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 form in or around your cooling system, the most common culprit is a lack of preventive maintenance. Taking some easy steps to keep your air conditioner in good condition will go a long way in combating the formation of ice.
Some of these routine tasks include the following:
If your air filter is dirty or clogged, air struggles to move over the evaporator coil, which is a crucial step in the cooling process. This affects refrigerant inside the coil and creates extra moisture, which turns to ice. We advise reviewing your filter each month and replacing it when you can’t see light through it.
Even if you change your air filter regularly, a dirty coil could also ice over. Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing technicians will regularly clean the evaporator coil as part of our detailed maintenance process. We suggest arranging air conditioning maintenance every year to keep your coil clean and to minimize the chance of breakdowns.
Without adequate refrigerant, the evaporator coil can’t hold as much heat and might ice up. As a result, your home will be hotter and stuffy. The most frequent origin of reduced refrigerant is a leak. Our Experts are well-trained in locating these leaks and getting your air conditioner at the correct refrigerant level.
Damaged wiring will disrupt the blower motor. Without stable airflow, the temperature will drop, and ice will form. Professional HVAC technicians like everyone at Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing will inspect all electrical components during routine maintenance to make sure nothing is out of place. Bad wiring will be replaced as necessary.
Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing offers detail-oriented maintenance membership packages to strengthen your air conditioner’s performance. With routine service visits, the chance for serious problems is greatly reduced.
There’s a chance ice on your air conditioner is a result of a larger problem. No air conditioner runs forever. And if you have an older one that requires R-22 refrigerant, you’ll be out of luck if you need more refrigerant, since it’s no longer being made.
If you’re constantly repairing your air conditioner and bills are piling up, it might be time to look for a replacement. We proudly offer affordable air conditioning replacement in the U.S.. Our installation process is prompt and stress free, so you can get back to your normal routine soon.
