Why Theres Ice on Your Air Conditioner and How to Repair It

Your air conditioner works constantly to keep indoor temperatures stable. But sometimes things don’t work right and ice forms in or around your cooling system. This may negatively affect crucial components or even stop your air conditioning from running.

If you’ve discovered ice on your air conditioner, it’s a good idea to reach out to our cooling Experts at 405-432-2197. Our technicians are the best around when it comes to air conditioning repair in Oklahoma City.

While there are multiple reasons ice can appear in or around your AC system, the most common culprit is a lack of preventive servicing. Taking simple steps to keep your air conditioner clean will go a long way in preventing 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 won’t move over the evaporator coil, which is a vital step in the cooling process. This affects refrigerant inside the coil and collects extra moisture, which turns to ice. We encourage inspecting your filter monthly and replacing it when you can’t see light through it.

Cleaning the Coil

Even if you switch your air filter regularly, a dirty coil might also ice over. Gordon's Service Experts technicians will routinely clean the evaporator coil as part of our comprehensive maintenance process. We suggest requesting air conditioning maintenance once a year to keep your coil clean and to reduce the chance of breakdowns.

Examining Refrigerant Levels

Without adequate refrigerant, the evaporator coil can’t transfer as much heat and might ice up. As a result, your home will be hotter and unpleasant. The most frequent origin of inadequate refrigerant is a leak. Our Experts are experienced in identifying these leaks and getting your air conditioner at the required refrigerant level.

Servicing Electrical Wiring

Bad wiring will interrupt the blower motor. Without consistent airflow, the temperature will drop, and ice will form. Knowledgeable HVAC technicians like everyone at Gordon's Service Experts will check all electrical components during routine maintenance to make certain nothing is wrong. Bad wiring will be swapped out as necessary.

Ice on Your Air Conditioner May Also Show There’s a Larger Issue

There’s a chance ice on your air conditioner is evidence of a larger problem. No air conditioner lives forever. And if you have an older one that uses R-22 refrigerant, you’ll be out of luck if you need more refrigerant, since it’s no longer being manufactured.
