Does the air emitting from your supply registers unexpectedly seem not cold enough? Look at the indoor portion of your air conditioner. This component is housed within your furnace or air handler, if you use a heat pump. If there’s water dripping onto the floor, there may be ice on the evaporator coil. The AC coil in the unit might have frozen over. You’ll need to thaw it before it can cool your residence again.
Here’s the things you should do. If you can’t get the coil back to normal, Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing is here to assist you with air conditioning repair in the U.S. that includes a a 100% satisfaction guarantee.*
To get started—set the thermostat from “cool” to “off.” This prevents cold refrigerant from flowing to the outdoor compressor, which could harm it and result in a costly repair.

It can take less than an hour or most of the day for the ice to melt, depending on the extent of the accumulation. While you’re waiting, watch the condensate pan below the AC unit. If the drain line is blocked, it can overflow as the ice melts, possibly creating water damage.
Poor airflow is a primary explanation for an AC to become frozen. Here’s how to troubleshoot the issue:
