How to Fix Your Air Conditioner When It Ices Over

Your air conditioner works constantly to keep indoor temperatures pleasant. But sometimes things don’t work like they should and ice forms in or around your cooling equipment. This may harm expensive components or even stop your air conditioner from running.

If you’ve discovered ice on your air conditioner, it’s a smart idea to contact our cooling Experts at 303-647-5853. Our AC specialists are the best name in service when it comes to air conditioning repair in Denver.

While there are different reasons ice can grow in or around your AC system, the most frequent culprit is a lack of preventive servicing. Taking simple steps to keep your air conditioner running normally will go a long way in halting the formation of ice.

Some of these helpful tasks include the following:

Putting in a New the Air Filter

If your air filter is dirty or clogged, air won’t move over the evaporator coil, which is a key step in the cooling process. This affects refrigerant inside the coil and produces extra moisture, which turns to ice. We suggest 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 might also ice over. Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning specialists will regularly clean the evaporator coil as part of our detailed maintenance process. We advise scheduling air conditioning maintenance once a year to keep your coil clean and to reduce the chance of breakdowns.

Checking Refrigerant Levels

Without adequate refrigerant, the evaporator coil can’t absorb as much heat and might ice up. As a result, your home will be hotter and less comfortable. The most frequent origin of reduced refrigerant is a leak. Our Experts are well-versed in locating these leaks and getting your air conditioner at the correct refrigerant level.

Servicing Electrical Wiring

Faulty wiring will affect the blower motor. Without constant airflow, the temperature can drop, and ice will form. Knowledgeable HVAC technicians like those at Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning will inspect all electrical components during routine maintenance to ensure nothing is wrong. Bad wiring will be replaced as necessary.

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

It’s possible ice on your air conditioner is a result of a larger problem. No air conditioner lives forever. And if you have an older one that uses R-22 refrigerant, you’ll be out of luck if you need more refrigerant, since it’s no longer being distributed.
