Why Your Air Conditioner Has Frozen and How to Repair It

Your air conditioner works day and night to keep indoor temperatures comfy. But occasionally things don’t work correctly and ice forms in or around your cooling system. This can negatively affect key components or even stop your AC system from running.

If you’ve discovered ice on your air conditioner, it’s a wise idea to reach out to our cooling Experts at 330-305-2799. Our repair techs are the best in town when it comes to air conditioning repair in Medina.

While there are several reasons ice may form in or around your cooling system, the most frequent culprit is a lack of preventive service. Taking some easy steps to keep your air conditioner in good condition will go a long way in halting the formation of ice.

Some of these routine tasks include the following:

Replacing the Air Filter

If your air filter is dirty or clogged, air can’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 advise looking at your filter each month and replacing it when you can’t see light through it.

Cleaning the Coil

Even if you change your air filter on a regular basis, a dirty coil may also ice over. Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning experts will routinely clean the evaporator coil as part of our comprehensive maintenance process. We suggest requesting air conditioning maintenance once a year to keep your coil clean and to minimize the chance of breakdowns.

Inspecting Refrigerant Levels

Without the right supply of refrigerant, the evaporator coil can’t transfer as much heat and could ice up. As a result, your home will be hotter and less comfortable. The most likely source of insufficient refrigerant is a leak. Our Experts are experienced in repairing these leaks and getting your air conditioner at the base refrigerant level.

Servicing Electrical Wiring

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

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

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

Sometimes ice on your air conditioner is evidence of a larger problem. No air conditioner works 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 consistently repairing your air conditioner and bills are piling up, it may be time to upgrade. We proudly offer affordable air conditioning replacement in Medina. Our installation process is fast and stress free, so you can get back to your normal routine as soon as possible.
