Why is my AC system freezing up?

There are a lot of reasons why your AC system freezes up in Daytona Beach. Nearly all of them typically require pro AC repair.

Double-checking the air filter is clean and airflow isn’t decreased are the only work you can safely fix on your own. If you need to replace the filter, you can hasten the melting process by disabling the system and turning on the fan. If you have a heat pump, you can move it to heat mode until the ice has disappeared.

After the ice melts, move the temp back to normal. If your system freezes again, contact All American Air Service Experts to repair the problem.

Here are several other reasons why your system might be freezing up.

Insufficient refrigerant—A frozen system could be a result of a refrigerant leak.

What leads to a leak?

  • Weak solder joints
  • Resistance from piping vibrating against other components
  • Ruptured valves
  • Loose fittings

How long your system has been installed and the location of the leak play a role in whether you should repair or replace your AC system.

Filthy evaporator coil—As time passes, the evaporator coil becomes dirty and leads to troubles much like a dirty filter. You’ll gradually get lower airflow until your unit freezes or halts cooling. You’ll need to get in touch with All American Air Service Experts to repair the problem.

Defective blower motor or relay—A blower motor running at an incorrect speed or not turning on at all can lead to freezing. It may also be intermittent, starting at top speed and decelerating after it gets warm. Or a relay may cause it to work one time and not the following time. In either case, you will need to get in touch with All American Air Service Experts to correct the problem.

Requesting yearly AC maintenance or heat pump maintenance could help you skip this issue. Our Experts will thoroughly check and clean your system, which often allows us to locate little troubles before they turn into huge problems.
