Your home’s central air conditioner works hard to keep you and your family cool during the hottest times of the year in Indianapolis. Unfortunately, it’s possible for your air conditioner to become overworked, possibly restricting the airflow to your home. As hot as it may be outside, your air conditioner can actually freeze. If this has happened to your air conditioner, don’t panic. Read on to find out why this happens and if you should schedule air conditioner service to deal with the issue.
If your air conditioner freezes up, the culprit is the evaporator coil within the condenser unit. There are two likely reasons the coil could freeze. First, the airflow through the coil is restricted. The system is trying to push more cold air through the condenser than it can handle and therefore frost starts to build up on the outside and slow the process even more. Eventually the frozen water could cause damage to the components of the system.
If this is not the case, a frozen AC may be due to a lack of refrigerant. Similarly, if this is the case, there simply isn’t enough “juice” to properly move the air through the coil and parts start to freeze up, giving your air conditioner a layer of ice and preventing your home from receiving the cool air it needs.
If your air conditioner has stopped working properly and is covered in frost or ice, don’t worry. Follow these simple steps and your home will be properly cooled again in no time.
Now find a good cool spot in front of the fan and wait for your technician to come. They will be able to make a quick and accurate diagnosis of the specific problem with your AC and let you know what kind of air conditioner service you will need to repair the problem.
