Your air conditioner works day and night to keep indoor temperatures comfy. But sometimes things don’t work correctly and ice builds up in or around your cooling unit. This may negatively affect delicate components or even stop your air conditioner from running.
If you’ve discovered ice on your air conditioner, it’s a smart idea to reach out to our cooling Experts at 210-404-4233. Our AC specialists are the best around when it comes to air conditioning repair in San Antonio.
While there are many reasons ice can form in or around your air conditioning, the most frequent culprit is a lack of preventive maintenance. Taking simple steps to keep your air conditioner in good condition will go a long way in stopping the formation of ice.
Some of these helpful tasks include the following:
If your air filter is dirty or clogged, air can’t move over the evaporator coil, which is a key step in the cooling process. This affects refrigerant inside the coil and results in extra moisture, which turns to ice. We suggest inspecting your filter every month and replacing it when you can’t see light through it.
Even if you change your air filter on a regular basis, a dirty coil could also ice over. Aramendia Plumbing, Heating and Air experts will thoroughly clean the evaporator coil as part of our exhaustive maintenance process. We suggest requesting air conditioning maintenance every year to keep your coil clean and to reduce the chance of breakdowns.
Without adequate refrigerant, the evaporator coil can’t take in as much heat and might ice up. As a result, your home will be hotter and less comfortable. The most frequent source of insufficient refrigerant is a leak. Our Experts are well-versed in patching up these leaks and getting your air conditioner at the required refrigerant level.
Damaged wiring will affect the blower motor. Without constant airflow, the temperature can drop, and ice will form. Professional HVAC technicians like everyone at Aramendia Plumbing, Heating and Air will inspect all electrical components during routine maintenance to make sure nothing is damaged. Bad wiring will be exchanged as necessary.
Aramendia Plumbing, Heating and Air designs comprehensive maintenance membership packages to increase your air conditioner’s performance. With routine service visits, the likelihood for severe problems is greatly reduced.
Sometimes ice on your air conditioner is pointing to a larger problem. No air conditioner lives forever. And if you have an older one that requires R-22 refrigerant, you’ll be out of luck if you need more refrigerant, since it’s no longer being manufactured.
If you’re repeatedly repairing your air conditioner and bills are adding up, it might be time to upgrade. We proudly offer affordable air conditioning replacement in San Antonio. Our installation process is quick and stress free, so you can get back to your normal routine soon.
