Your air conditioner works constantly to keep indoor temperatures comfortable. But occasionally things don’t work properly and ice collects in or around your cooling system. This may negatively affect important components or even stop your air conditioner from running.
If you’ve stumbled upon ice on your air conditioner, it’s a smart idea to contact our cooling Experts at . Our technicians are the best in the business when it comes to air conditioning repair in the U.S..
While there are several reasons ice may appear in or around your cooling system, the most common culprit is a lack of preventive service. Taking small steps to keep your air conditioner clean will go a long way in halting the formation of ice.
Some of these helpful tasks include the following:
If your air filter is dirty or clogged, air can’t move over the evaporator coil, which is a vital step in the cooling process. This affects refrigerant inside the coil and produces extra moisture, which turns to ice. We encourage inspecting your filter every month and replacing it when you can’t see light through it.
Even if you replace your air filter consistently, a dirty coil may 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 annually to keep your coil clean and to reduce the chance of breakdowns.
Without enough refrigerant, the evaporator coil can’t take in as much heat and could 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 repairing these leaks and getting your air conditioner at the correct refrigerant level.
Bad wiring will disrupt the blower motor. Without constant airflow, the temperature can 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 make sure nothing is wrong. Bad wiring will be replaced as necessary.
Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing offers extensive maintenance membership packages to maximize your air conditioner’s efficiency. With routine service visits, the likelihood for severe problems is greatly reduced.
Sometimes ice on your air conditioner is happening because of a larger problem. No air conditioner lives 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 manufactured.
If you’re constantly repairing your air conditioner and bills are stacking up, it could be time to find a new one. 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 as soon as possible.
