How to Fix Your Air Conditioner When It Ices Over

Your air conditioner works around the clock to keep indoor temperatures comfortable. But sometimes things don’t work correctly and ice forms in or around your cooling system. This might damage delicate components or even stop your system from running.

If you’ve stumbled upon ice on your air conditioner, it’s a wise idea to call our cooling Experts at 918-212-8927. Our AC specialists are the best in the business when it comes to air conditioning repair in Tulsa.

While there are different reasons ice might appear in or around your cooling system, the most frequent culprit is a lack of preventive service. Taking small steps to keep your air conditioner in good condition will go a long way in halting the formation of ice.

Some of these important 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 vital step in the cooling process. This affects refrigerant inside the coil and creates extra moisture, which turns to ice. We advise checking your filter every month 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 may also ice over. Jack Nelson Service Experts specialists will routinely clean the evaporator coil as part of our total maintenance process. We advise scheduling air conditioning maintenance once a year to keep your coil clean and to lower the chance of breakdowns.

Inspecting Refrigerant Levels

Without adequate refrigerant, the evaporator coil can’t take in as much heat and could ice up. As a result, your home will be hotter and uncomfortable. The most likely culprit of insufficient refrigerant is a leak. Our Experts are well-trained in repairing these leaks and getting your air conditioner at the base refrigerant level.

Tuning Up Electrical Wiring

Faulty wiring will disrupt the blower motor. Without constant airflow, the temperature can drop, and ice will form. Professional HVAC technicians like those at Jack Nelson Service Experts will check all electrical components during routine maintenance to make sure nothing is out of place. Bad wiring will be redone as necessary.

Jack Nelson Service Experts offers extensive maintenance membership packages to maximize your air conditioner’s effectiveness. With routine service visits, the risk for severe problems is greatly reduced.

Ice on Your Air Conditioner Can Also Mean There’s a More Pressing Situation

There’s a chance ice on your air conditioner is a result of a larger problem. No air conditioner lasts 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 distributed.
