The air conditioning in your Valley-Metro home just doesn’t seem to be cooling things off – no matter how low you set that thermostat! When you take a look at the air conditioning unit, you see that some ice is frosting up on the pipes. This is not good.
A frozen air conditioning system can be caused by a refrigeration problem. The most common problem is a refrigerant leak, often referred to as Freon®. This also means that the air conditioning is low on refrigerant. This leak needs to be repaired and then the system recharged by a professional HVAC technician from Cooper Climate Control.
A frozen air conditioning system can also be caused by a refrigeration problem when pressures drop in the evaporator. A pressure drop in the evaporator coil means that the refrigerant will be colder than the dew point. When the evaporator coil in your air conditioner operates below the dew point, the moisture or humidity in the air will freeze to the coil. Frost will appear on the air conditioner evaporator coil and start to restrict airflow and then accelerate the freezing process. This will eventually form a solid block of ice and restrict the air flow of the air conditioning system. Only a trained HVAC professional has the tools to fix this type of problem.
To get that frozen air conditioner unfrozen, first turn off the air conditioner. Then call your trained Heating & Cooling Specialists at Cooper Climate Control. And in the future, you can avoid a frozen air conditioning unit in your home by having the experts at Cooper Climate Control service your HVAC system on a regular basis.
