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

Your air conditioner works tirelessly to keep indoor temperatures comfortable. But sometimes things don’t work like they should and ice forms in or around your cooling system. This might negatively affect key components or even stop your system 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 in town when it comes to air conditioning repair in the U.S.

While there are different reasons ice may build up in or around your cooling system, the most common culprit is a lack of preventive maintenance. Taking a few steps to keep your air conditioner running normally will go a long way in preventing the formation of ice. 

Some of these useful tasks include the following: 

Replacing 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 encourage reviewing your filter once a month and replacing it when you can’t see light through it. 

Cleaning the Coil 

Even if you switch your air filter consistently, a dirty coil may also ice over. Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing technicians will thoroughly clean the evaporator coil as part of our exhaustive maintenance process. We suggest scheduling air conditioning maintenance every year to keep your coil clean and to lower the chance of breakdowns. 

Checking Refrigerant Levels 

Without the right supply of refrigerant, the evaporator coil can’t hold as much heat and could ice up. As a result, your home will be hotter and less comfortable. The most common cause of inadequate 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 

Damaged wiring will affect the blower motor. Without steady airflow, the temperature could drop, and ice will form. Qualified HVAC technicians like those at Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing will review all electrical components during routine maintenance to make certain nothing is damaged. Bad wiring will be swapped out as necessary. 

Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing designs thorough maintenance membership packages to strengthen your air conditioner’s effectiveness. With routine service visits, the chance for major problems is greatly reduced. 

Ice on Your Air Conditioner Might Also Mean There’s a Bigger Problem 

It’s possible 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 repeatedly repairing your air conditioner and bills are piling up, it could be time to upgrade. We proudly offer affordable air conditioning replacement in the U.S.. Our installation process is quick and stress free, so you can get back to your normal routine as soon as possible.
