Why There’s Ice on Your Air Conditioner and How to Repair It

Your air conditioner works tirelessly to keep indoor temperatures stable. But from time to time things don’t work right and ice builds up in or around your cooling equipment. This may negatively affect important components or even stop your air conditioner from running.

If you’ve discovered ice on your air conditioner, it’s a good idea to get in touch with our cooling Experts at . Our repair techs are the best in the business when it comes to air conditioning repair in the U.S..

While there are multiple reasons ice may collect in or around your air conditioning, the most likely culprit is a lack of preventive servicing. Taking some easy steps to keep your air conditioner running normally will go a long way in combating the formation of ice.

Some of these useful tasks include the following:

Putting in a New the Air Filter

If your air filter is dirty or clogged, air won’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 suggest reviewing your filter each month and replacing it when you can’t see light through it.

Cleaning the Coil

Even if you replace your air filter consistently, a dirty coil can also ice over. Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing experts will regularly clean the evaporator coil as part of our exhaustive maintenance process. We suggest arranging air conditioning maintenance once a year to keep your coil clean and to lower the chance of breakdowns.

Examining Refrigerant Levels

Without adequate refrigerant, the evaporator coil can’t take in as much heat and may ice up. As a result, your home will be hotter and unpleasant. The most common cause of insufficient refrigerant is a leak. Our Experts are well-versed in repairing these leaks and getting your air conditioner at the right refrigerant level.

Maintaining Electrical Wiring

Bad wiring will disrupt the blower motor. Without constant airflow, the temperature will drop, and ice will form. Qualified HVAC technicians like the ones at Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing will review all electrical components during routine maintenance to make certain nothing is wrong. Bad wiring will be exchanged as necessary.

Ice on Your Air Conditioner Might Also Indicate There’s a Larger Problem

It’s possible ice on your air conditioner is evidence of a larger problem. No air conditioner lasts 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.
