Why Your Air Conditioner Has Iced Over and How to Manage It

Your air conditioner works day and night to keep indoor temperatures comfy. But sometimes things don’t work properly and ice collects in or around your cooling equipment. This may negatively affect delicate components or even stop your air conditioning from running.

If you’ve found ice on your air conditioner, it’s a great idea to call our cooling Experts at 469-250-0932. Our AC specialists are the best in the business when it comes to air conditioning repair in Dallas.

While there are many reasons ice could form in or around your AC system, the most common culprit is a lack of preventive servicing. Taking simple steps to keep your air conditioner in good condition will go a long way in preventing the formation of ice.

Some of these useful tasks include the following:

Replacing the Air Filter

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 produces extra moisture, which turns to ice. We recommend looking at your filter each month and replacing it when you can’t see light through it.

Cleaning the Coil

Even if you replace your air filter consistently, a dirty coil might also ice over. Levy & Son Service Experts experts will thoroughly clean the evaporator coil as part of our exhaustive maintenance process. We recommend arranging air conditioning maintenance annually to keep your coil clean and to minimize the chance of breakdowns.

Checking 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 uncomfortable. The most likely origin of inadequate refrigerant is a leak. Our Experts are well-versed in repairing these leaks and getting your air conditioner at the base refrigerant level.

Tuning Up Electrical Wiring

Bad wiring will disrupt the blower motor. Without stable airflow, the temperature will drop, and ice will form. Qualified HVAC technicians like the ones at Levy & Son Service Experts will evaluate all electrical components during routine maintenance to make certain nothing is wrong. Bad wiring will be redone as necessary.

Levy & Son Service Experts provides thorough maintenance membership packages to boost your air conditioner’s efficiency. With routine service visits, the likelihood for serious problems is greatly reduced.

Ice on Your Air Conditioner May Also Show There’s a Larger Problem

There’s a chance 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 runs on R-22 refrigerant, you’ll be out of luck if you need more refrigerant, since it’s no longer being manufactured.
