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

Your air conditioner works hard to keep indoor temperatures pleasant. But occasionally things don’t work right and ice appears in or around your cooling equipment. This might harm expensive components or even stop your air conditioner 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 866-397-3787. Our repair techs are the best around when it comes to air conditioning repair in the U.S.

While there are many reasons ice may build up in or around your air conditioning, the most likely culprit is a lack of preventive servicing. Taking simple steps to keep your air conditioner in working shape will go a long way in halting the formation of ice. 

Some of these important tasks include the following: 

Changing the Air Filter 

If your air filter is dirty or clogged, air struggles to 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 recommend reviewing your filter once a month and replacing it when you can’t see light through it. 

Cleaning the Coil 

Even if you change your air filter consistently, a dirty coil may also ice over. Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing experts will thoroughly clean the evaporator coil as part of our detailed maintenance process. We encourage requesting 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 might ice up. As a result, your home will be hotter and unpleasant. The most common origin of insufficient refrigerant is a leak. Our Experts are experienced in repairing these leaks and getting your air conditioner at the correct refrigerant level. 

Tuning Up Electrical Wiring 

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

Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing provides extensive maintenance membership packages to enhance your air conditioner’s performance. With routine service visits, the likelihood for severe problems is greatly reduced. 

Ice on Your Air Conditioner Might Also Indicate There’s a More Pressing Issue 

It’s possible ice on your air conditioner is evidence of a larger problem. No air conditioner runs forever. And if you have an older one that needs 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 adding up, it may be time to look for a replacement. We proudly offer affordable air conditioning replacement in the U.S.. Our installation process is fast and stress free, so you can get back to your normal routine right away.
