How to Repair Your Air Conditioner When It Freezes

Your air conditioner works day and night to keep indoor temperatures comfy. But from time to time things don’t work correctly and ice forms in or around your cooling unit. This can harm delicate components or even stop your system from running.

If you’ve found ice on your air conditioner, it’s a good idea to call our cooling Experts at 856-310-4824. Our technicians are the best in town when it comes to air conditioning repair in Voorhees.

While there are several reasons ice might build up in or around your cooling system, the most frequent culprit is a lack of preventive service. Taking a few steps to keep your air conditioner in good condition will go a long way in stopping the formation of ice.

Some of these helpful tasks include the following:

Changing the Air Filter

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 creates extra moisture, which turns to ice. We recommend reviewing your filter monthly and replacing it when you can’t see light through it.

Cleaning the Coil

Even if you switch your air filter on a regular basis, a dirty coil can also ice over. Atmostemp Service Experts experts will regularly clean the evaporator coil as part of our exhaustive maintenance process. We suggest scheduling air conditioning maintenance every year to keep your coil clean and to lower the chance of breakdowns.

Examining Refrigerant Levels

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

Servicing Electrical Wiring

Bad wiring will disrupt the blower motor. Without steady airflow, the temperature could drop, and ice will form. Certified HVAC technicians like everyone at Atmostemp Service Experts will review all electrical components during routine maintenance to make certain nothing is out of place. Bad wiring will be redone as necessary.

Atmostemp Service Experts provides thorough maintenance membership packages to increase your air conditioner’s performance. With routine service visits, the risk for critical problems is greatly reduced.

Ice on Your Air Conditioner Might Also Indicate There’s a More Pressing Situation

Sometimes ice on your air conditioner is happening because of a larger problem. No air conditioner runs forever. And if you have an older one that runs on R-22 refrigerant, you’ll be out of luck if you need more refrigerant, since it’s no longer being made.
