Your air conditioner works day and night to keep indoor temperatures comfortable. But sometimes things don’t work like they’re supposed to and ice appears in or around your cooling system. This might negatively affect expensive components or even stop your AC 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 . Our repair techs are the best name in service when it comes to air conditioning repair in the U.S..
While there are different reasons ice could form in or around your AC system, the most likely culprit is a lack of preventive servicing. Taking some easy steps to keep your air conditioner in good condition will go a long way in stopping the formation of ice.
Some of these important 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 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.
Even if you change your air filter consistently, a dirty coil might also ice over. Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing experts will routinely clean the evaporator coil as part of our detailed maintenance process. We recommend arranging air conditioning maintenance every year to keep your coil clean and to lower the chance of breakdowns.
Without the required amount of refrigerant, the evaporator coil can’t take in as much heat and can ice up. As a result, your home will be hotter and unpleasant. The most common source of reduced refrigerant is a leak. Our Experts are experienced in resolving these leaks and getting your air conditioner at the correct refrigerant level.
Bad wiring will affect the blower motor. Without steady airflow, the temperature can 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 ensure 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 effectiveness. With routine service visits, the risk for severe problems is greatly reduced.
There’s a chance 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 utilizes R-22 refrigerant, you’ll be out of luck if you need more refrigerant, since it’s no longer being manufactured.
If you’re repeatedly repairing your air conditioner and bills are stacking up, it might be time to replace it. We proudly offer affordable air conditioning replacement in the U.S.. Our installation process is quick and stress free, so you can get back to your normal routine soon.
