Your air conditioner works hard to keep indoor temperatures stable. But sometimes things don’t work correctly and ice builds up in or around your cooling equipment. This may harm crucial components or even stop your AC system from running.
If you’ve located ice on your air conditioner, it’s a wise idea to get in touch with 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 multiple reasons ice may grow in or around your cooling system, the most likely culprit is a lack of preventive servicing. Taking small steps to keep your air conditioner in working shape will go a long way in combating the formation of ice.
Some of these routine tasks include the following:
If your air filter is dirty or clogged, air can’t move over the evaporator coil, which is a central step in the cooling process. This affects refrigerant inside the coil and creates extra moisture, which turns to ice. We suggest checking your filter monthly and replacing it when you can’t see light through it.
Even if you switch your air filter regularly, a dirty coil can also ice over. Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing specialists will regularly clean the evaporator coil as part of our exhaustive maintenance process. We encourage scheduling air conditioning maintenance once a year to keep your coil clean and to lower the chance of breakdowns.
Without enough refrigerant, the evaporator coil can’t take in as much heat and might ice up. As a result, your home will be hotter and stuffy. The most frequent origin of insufficient refrigerant is a leak. Our Experts are experienced in identifying these leaks and getting your air conditioner at the correct refrigerant level.
Bad wiring will interrupt the blower motor. Without consistent airflow, the temperature will drop, and ice will form. Professional HVAC technicians like those at Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing will evaluate all electrical components during routine maintenance to make sure nothing is wrong. Bad wiring will be exchanged as necessary.
Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing provides thorough maintenance membership packages to enhance your air conditioner’s effectiveness. With routine service visits, the likelihood for serious problems is greatly reduced.
Sometimes ice on your air conditioner is a result 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 produced.
If you’re routinely repairing your air conditioner and bills are adding up, it may be time to upgrade. We proudly offer affordable air conditioning replacement in the U.S.. Our installation process is prompt and stress free, so you can get back to your normal routine fast.
