Does the air flowing from your supply registers unexpectedly seem not cold enough? Inspect the indoor part of your air conditioner. This piece is situated inside your furnace or air handler, if you rely on a heat pump. If there’s water dripping onto the floor, there might be frost on the evaporator coil. The AC coil inside the system might have frosted over. You’ll need to thaw it before it can cool your house again.
Here’s the steps you should take. If you can’t get the coil defrosted, Aramendia Plumbing, Heating and Air is here to assist you with air conditioning repair in San Antonio backed by a 100% satisfaction guarantee.*
To get started—move the thermostat from “cool” to “off.” This prevents chilled refrigerant from moving to the outdoor compressor, which could harm it and lead to an expensive repair.
Next, switch the fan from “auto” to “on.” This makes hot airflow over the frozen coils to make them thaw faster. Make sure to set the cooling mode to “off” so the air conditioner doesn’t start a cooling cycle.
It can take under an hour or most of the day for the ice to melt, depending on the degree of the accumulation. While you’re waiting, keep an eye on the condensate pan underneath the AC unit. If the drain line is obstructed, it can spill over as the ice melts, possibly creating water damage.
Not enough airflow is a main cause for an AC to become frozen. Here’s how to troubleshoot the situation:
If poor airflow doesn’t appear to be the issue, then another problem is making your AC frost over. If this is what’s going on, simply defrosting it won’t repair the trouble. The evaporator coil will probably freeze again unless you fix the root symptom. Get in touch with an HVAC professional to look for issues with your air conditioner, which might include:
