Why Theres Ice on Your Air Conditioner and How to Repair It

Your air conditioner works day and night to keep indoor temperatures comfortable. But occasionally things don’t work right and ice forms in or around your cooling system. This can damage crucial components or even stop your system from running.

If you’ve uncovered ice on your air conditioner, it’s a great idea to reach out to our cooling Experts at 386-310-2061. Our technicians are the best in town when it comes to air conditioning repair in Daytona Beach.

While there are many reasons ice can collect in or around your AC system, the most frequent culprit is a lack of preventive servicing. Taking a few steps to keep your air conditioner running normally will go a long way in combating 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 central step in the cooling process. This affects refrigerant inside the coil and results in extra moisture, which turns to ice. We advise looking at your filter monthly and replacing it when you can’t see light through it.

Cleaning the Coil

Even if you swap your air filter regularly, a dirty coil can also ice over. All American Air Service Experts specialists will regularly clean the evaporator coil as part of our comprehensive maintenance process. We suggest scheduling air conditioning maintenance annually to keep your coil clean and to reduce the chance of breakdowns.

Checking Refrigerant Levels

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

Maintaining Electrical Wiring

Faulty wiring will affect the blower motor. Without constant airflow, the temperature can drop, and ice will form. Qualified HVAC technicians like the ones at All American Air Service Experts will review all electrical components during routine maintenance to make certain nothing is damaged. Bad wiring will be swapped out as necessary.
