Why Your Air Conditioner is Iced Up and How to Manage It
Your air conditioner works tirelessly to keep indoor temperatures pleasant. But occasionally things don’t work like they should and ice builds up in or around your cooling equipment. This may harm expensive components or even stop your air conditioning from running.
If you’ve discovered ice on your air conditioner, it’s a smart idea to get in touch with our cooling Experts at 631-406-9220. Our AC specialists are the best name in service when it comes to air conditioning repair in Long Island.
While there are many reasons ice might build up in or around your cooling system, the most likely culprit is a lack of preventive service. Taking simple steps to keep your air conditioner in working shape will go a long way in combating the formation of ice.
Some of these routine tasks include the following:
Putting in a New the Air Filter
If your air filter is dirty or clogged, air struggles to move over the evaporator coil, which is a key step in the cooling process. This affects refrigerant inside the coil and creates extra moisture, which turns to ice. We advise inspecting 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 could also ice over. Matz-Rightway specialists will regularly clean the evaporator coil as part of our comprehensive maintenance process. We advise scheduling air conditioning maintenance every year to keep your coil clean and to lower the chance of breakdowns.
Examining Refrigerant Levels
Without the right supply of refrigerant, the evaporator coil can’t transfer as much heat and could ice up. As a result, your home will be hotter and stuffy. The most frequent culprit of insufficient refrigerant is a leak. Our Experts are well-trained in patching up these leaks and getting your air conditioner at the right refrigerant level.
Maintaining Electrical Wiring
Faulty wiring will disrupt the blower motor. Without constant airflow, the temperature will drop, and ice will form. Qualified HVAC technicians like the ones at Matz-Rightway will inspect all electrical components during routine maintenance to make sure nothing is damaged. Bad wiring will be redone as necessary.
Matz-Rightway provides detail-oriented maintenance membership packages to boost your air conditioner’s performance. With routine service visits, the chance for major problems is greatly reduced.
Ice on Your Air Conditioner Can Also Mean There’s a More Pressing Problem
Sometimes ice on your air conditioner is evidence of a larger problem. No air conditioner runs forever. And if you have an older one that requires R-22 refrigerant, you’ll be out of luck if you need more refrigerant, since it’s no longer being distributed.
