How to Handle Your Air Conditioner When It Freezes

Your air conditioner works constantly to keep indoor temperatures stable. But from time to time things don’t work like they’re supposed to and ice builds up in or around your cooling unit. This may negatively affect delicate components or even stop your system from running.

If you’ve uncovered ice on your air conditioner, it’s a great idea to get in touch with our cooling Experts at 904-450-5672. Our repair techs are the best name in service when it comes to air conditioning repair in Jacksonville.

While there are different reasons ice might collect in or around your air conditioner, the most frequent culprit is a lack of preventive service. Taking a few steps to keep your air conditioner running normally will go a long way in preventing the formation of ice.

Some of these helpful tasks include the following:

Putting in a New the Air Filter

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 encourage checking your filter every month and replacing it when you can’t see light through it.

Cleaning the Coil

Even if you change your air filter regularly, a dirty coil might also ice over. Air Engineers Service Experts experts will thoroughly clean the evaporator coil as part of our exhaustive maintenance process. We advise scheduling air conditioning maintenance every year to keep your coil clean and to lower the chance of breakdowns.

Inspecting Refrigerant Levels

Without enough refrigerant, the evaporator coil can’t hold as much heat and can ice up. As a result, your home will be hotter and unpleasant. The most frequent cause of inadequate refrigerant is a leak. Our Experts are well-trained in patching up these leaks and getting your air conditioner at the required refrigerant level.

Tuning Up Electrical Wiring

Faulty wiring will affect the blower motor. Without steady airflow, the temperature may drop, and ice will form. Professional HVAC technicians like those at Air Engineers Service Experts will evaluate all electrical components during routine maintenance to make sure nothing is wrong. Bad wiring will be redone as necessary.

Air Engineers Service Experts offers comprehensive maintenance membership packages to increase your air conditioner’s performance. With routine service visits, the likelihood for serious problems is greatly reduced.

Ice on Your Air Conditioner Can Also Indicate There’s a More Pressing Problem

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 manufactured.
