How to Handle Your Air Conditioner When Its Frozen

Your air conditioner works constantly to keep indoor temperatures stable. But occasionally things don’t work correctly and ice builds up in or around your cooling equipment. This might negatively affect delicate components or even stop your air conditioner from running.

If you’ve uncovered ice on your air conditioner, it’s a good idea to call our cooling Experts at 289-813-5566. Our technicians are the best around when it comes to air conditioning repair in Oakville.

While there are multiple reasons ice may collect in or around your air conditioner, 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:

Changing 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 collects extra moisture, which turns to ice. We advise looking at your filter every month and replacing it when you can’t see light through it.

Cleaning the Coil

Even if you change your air filter consistently, a dirty coil might also ice over. Abbey Air Home Services by Enercare specialists will thoroughly clean the evaporator coil as part of our exhaustive maintenance process. We advise arranging air conditioning maintenance every year to keep your coil clean and to reduce the chance of breakdowns.

Inspecting Refrigerant Levels

Without the required amount of refrigerant, the evaporator coil can’t take in as much heat and may ice up. As a result, your home will be hotter and uncomfortable. The most common cause of inadequate refrigerant is a leak. Our Experts are well-trained in resolving these leaks and getting your air conditioner at the required refrigerant level.

Servicing Electrical Wiring

Bad wiring will disrupt the blower motor. Without constant airflow, the temperature could drop, and ice will form. Qualified HVAC technicians like the ones at Abbey Air Home Services by Enercare will review all electrical components during routine maintenance to ensure nothing is wrong. Bad wiring will be redone as necessary.

Abbey Air Home Services by Enercare designs extensive maintenance membership packages to increase your air conditioner’s performance. With routine service visits, the likelihood for critical problems is greatly reduced.

Ice on Your Air Conditioner May Also Indicate There’s a Larger Situation

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 needs R-22 refrigerant, you’ll be out of luck if you need more refrigerant, since it’s no longer being manufactured.
