What Should I Do About My Frozen AC?

When your AC freezes up, either inside or at the outdoor unit, you have a problem. When your AC is frozen, you could subject your system to serious damage if it isn’t addressed promptly.

Contact us today for urgent AC repair!

Why is my air conditioner frozen? It’s a question many homeowners have every summer. There are two main reasons an AC system would freeze up—either there is low air flow or there is a low refrigerant charge.

  • Low air flow – low air flow can be related to a very dirty air filter or a filter that is too small. Both of these things reduce the amount of air that flows across your indoor air conditioner coil, which can cause condensation to build up and freeze instead of draining properly. Also, a bad or worn out blower motor or dirty blower wheel can reduce air flow, which makes your system operate inefficiently.

 

  • Low refrigerant charge – All AC systems need a proper refrigerant charge in order to operate at an optimum level and meet manufacturer’s specifications. Your air conditioner will be charged with refrigerant prior to installation, and since it doesn’t consume any during operation, the only reasons you would be low are if you have a leak or it wasn’t installed properly the first time.

Whether your frozen AC is due to either of these problems, our suggestion at Arctic Air Conditioning is to have a certified professional technician service your air conditioner. We can find out what is contributing to your frozen system and provide exceptional air conditioning repair services.
