How to Fix Your Air Conditioner When Its Frozen

Your air conditioner works tirelessly to keep indoor temperatures comfy. But from time to time things don’t work like they’re supposed to and ice builds up in or around your cooling equipment. This might harm important components or even stop your air conditioner from running.

If you’ve found ice on your air conditioner, it’s a wise idea to get in touch with our cooling Experts at 440-252-1375. Our AC specialists are the best name in service when it comes to air conditioning repair in Cleveland.

While there are lots of reasons ice might collect in or around your AC system, the most frequent culprit is a lack of preventive service. 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 helpful 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 checking your filter monthly and replacing it when you can’t see light through it.

Cleaning the Coil

Even if you replace your air filter regularly, a dirty coil may also ice over. Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning experts will thoroughly clean the evaporator coil as part of our exhaustive maintenance process. We recommend scheduling air conditioning maintenance once a year to keep your coil clean and to reduce the chance of breakdowns.

Examining Refrigerant Levels

Without adequate refrigerant, the evaporator coil can’t transfer as much heat and may ice up. As a result, your home will be hotter and less comfortable. The most likely culprit of inadequate refrigerant is a leak. Our Experts are well-trained in patching up these leaks and getting your air conditioner at the base refrigerant level.

Tuning Up Electrical Wiring

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

Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning offers detail-oriented maintenance membership packages to enhance your air conditioner’s effectiveness. With routine service visits, the chance for severe problems is greatly reduced.

Ice on Your Air Conditioner Can Also Indicate There’s a Bigger Issue

There’s a chance ice on your air conditioner is a result of a larger problem. No air conditioner lasts 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.
