Does the air emitting from your supply registers unexpectedly seem not cold enough? Inspect the indoor component of your air conditioner. This piece is situated inside your furnace or air handler, if you rely on a heat pump. If there’s water seeping onto the floor, there could be frost on the evaporator coil. The AC coil inside the system could have frozen over. You’ll need to defrost it before it can cool your residence again.
Here’s the steps you should take. If you can’t get the coil back to normal, Levy & Son Service Experts is here to help with air conditioning repair in Dallas upheld by a 100% satisfaction guarantee.*
To get started—move the thermostat from “cool” to “off.” This prevents chilled refrigerant from moving to the outdoor compressor, which could harm it and cause a costly repair.
Next, move the fan from “auto” to “on.” This produces heated airflow over the frozen coils to make them defrost faster. Make sure to set the cooling mode to “off” so the air conditioner doesn’t start a cooling cycle.
It can take under an hour or most of the day for the ice to melt, depending on the degree of the accumulation. While you’re waiting, check the condensate pan underneath the AC unit. If the drain line is obstructed, it can spill over as the ice melts, likely creating water damage.
Poor airflow is a chief cause for an AC to frost over. Here’s how to figure out the problem:
If poor airflow doesn’t appear to be the issue, then something else is causing your AC freeze up. If this is what’s going on, just thawing it out won’t repair the problem. The evaporator coil will probably keep freezing unless you fix the root symptom. Contact an HVAC tech to look for issues with your air conditioner, which might include:
