Your home’s central air conditioner works hard to keep you and your family cool during the sweltering summers in Girard. Unfortunately, it’s more likely than you might think for your air conditioner to become overworked, possibly restricting the airflow to your home. As toasty as it may be outside, your air conditioner can actually ice over. If this has happened to your air conditioner, don’t panic. Read on to find out why it has happened and if you should schedule air conditioner service to deal with the situation.
If your air conditioner becomes frozen, the problem is the evaporator coil within the condenser unit. There are two typical reasons the coil could freeze. First, the airflow through the coil is restricted. Your AC is trying to force more cold air through the space than it can handle and therefore frost starts to build up on the system and slow the process even more. Eventually the frozen water could cause damage to the key parts of the system.
If this is not the case, a frozen AC may be due to a low level of refrigerant. Similarly, if this is the case, there simply isn’t enough “juice” to properly move the air through the coil and things start to freeze up, giving your air conditioner a layer of ice and stopping your home from receiving the cool air it needs.
If your air conditioner has stopped working properly and shows visible signs of frost or ice, don’t worry. Follow these simple steps and your home will be properly cooled again in no time.
- Go to the thermostat and turn off your air conditioner totally.
- Look at other areas of your AC through which air flows to make sure air is not restricted. Make sure your air filters are clean and all the registers and vents are cleared off.
