Your air conditioner works constantly to keep indoor temperatures comfy. But from time to time things don’t work correctly and ice collects in or around your cooling equipment. This might negatively affect expensive components or even stop your air conditioner from running.
If you’ve uncovered ice on your air conditioner, it’s a wise idea to contact 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 could form in or around your AC system, the most common culprit is a lack of preventive service. Taking a few steps to keep your air conditioner clean will go a long way in combating the formation of ice.
Some of these useful tasks include the following:
If your air filter is dirty or clogged, air won’t move over the evaporator coil, which is a central step in the cooling process. This affects refrigerant inside the coil and collects extra moisture, which turns to ice. We advise checking your filter every month and replacing it when you can’t see light through it.
Even if you switch your air filter regularly, a dirty coil might also ice over. Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing technicians will routinely clean the evaporator coil as part of our total maintenance process. We advise requesting air conditioning maintenance once a year to keep your coil clean and to lower the chance of breakdowns.
Without adequate refrigerant, the evaporator coil can’t hold as much heat and can ice up. As a result, your home will be hotter and uncomfortable. The most likely source of insufficient refrigerant is a leak. Our Experts are well-versed in patching up these leaks and getting your air conditioner at the required refrigerant level.
Faulty wiring will affect the blower motor. Without steady airflow, the temperature may drop, and ice will form. Knowledgeable HVAC technicians like the ones at Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing will examine all electrical components during routine maintenance to ensure nothing is damaged. Bad wiring will be exchanged as necessary.
Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing offers detail-oriented maintenance membership packages to maximize your air conditioner’s performance. With routine service visits, the risk for severe problems is greatly reduced.
Sometimes ice on your air conditioner is happening because of a larger problem. No air conditioner works forever. And if you have an older one that runs on R-22 refrigerant, you’ll be out of luck if you need more refrigerant, since it’s no longer being made.
If you’re constantly repairing your air conditioner and bills are piling 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 quick and stress free, so you can get back to your normal routine soon.
