Why Your Air Conditioner is Iced Up and How to Repair It

Your air conditioner works around the clock to keep indoor temperatures comfy. But sometimes things don’t work like they’re supposed to and ice appears in or around your cooling equipment. This might harm crucial components or even stop your AC system from running.

If you’ve located ice on your air conditioner, it’s a wise idea to contact our cooling Experts at 817-668-6689. Our AC specialists are the best name in service when it comes to air conditioning repair in Fort Worth.

While there are several reasons ice might form in or around your cooling system, the most likely culprit is a lack of preventive service. Taking small steps to keep your air conditioner clean will go a long way in stopping 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 can’t move over the evaporator coil, which is a crucial step in the cooling process. This affects refrigerant inside the coil and creates extra moisture, which turns to ice. We advise inspecting your filter monthly and replacing it when you can’t see light through it.

Cleaning the Coil

Even if you replace your air filter on a regular basis, a dirty coil might also ice over. Stark Services technicians will thoroughly clean the evaporator coil as part of our detailed maintenance process. We encourage arranging air conditioning maintenance annually to keep your coil clean and to lower the chance of breakdowns.

Inspecting Refrigerant Levels

Without adequate refrigerant, the evaporator coil can’t absorb as much heat and could ice up. As a result, your home will be hotter and less comfortable. The most likely cause of reduced refrigerant is a leak. Our Experts are well-versed in locating these leaks and getting your air conditioner at the correct refrigerant level.

Maintaining Electrical Wiring

Faulty wiring will interrupt the blower motor. Without steady airflow, the temperature may drop, and ice will form. Qualified HVAC technicians like everyone at Stark Services will evaluate all electrical components during routine maintenance to make sure nothing is out of place. Bad wiring will be replaced as necessary.

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