Phoenix AC Maintenance. How To Fix Ice On Coils?

Find Phoenix AC Maintenance

Before using a heater blower to melt ice from your air conditioner's coils, it's essential to know why it's there.

Delaying expert Phoenix AC maintenance will only worsen, and ice developing on your air conditioning system's coils is a severe issue.

Temperatures will only continue to rise as we move into the second part of spring, increasing our need for air conditioners. Contact the professionals at Rescue One Air to ensure that everything is done the first time correctly.


What Causes Ice to Form on the Coil?

To keep your home cool, your air conditioner does not need ice. Think this: ice is a very inefficient way of cooling a home, and it takes a lot more energy to keep ice cool than it does to keep a space like your home cool.

Ice is also wet, and moisture doesn't mix well with our technology or air quality, so it's no friend to an HVAC specialist.

However, it can appear on the coil of an air conditioner for various reasons.

Here are a few probable causes of ice formation on your AC's outdoor cabinet:

  1. The air filter is clogged and must be replaced. Because it blocks your system's airflow, a clogged air filter contributes significantly to stagnant air. If the air cools but cannot move, it will continue to cool until everything around it freezes. If the problem persists, replace your air filter.
  2. A refrigerant leak has occurred in the system. When an air conditioner has less refrigerant, it will cycle faster and for a shorter period. Because it isn't working at total capacity, the refrigerant may become excessively cold, causing ice to form.
  3. The fan system is malfunctioning. If there isn't a fan to drive the cold air out of the system and into your home, it will freeze temperatures in a small area.
  4. The coils have become filthy. Dirty coils can't absorb heat and clean coils. This suggests that your filthy coils may also contribute to ice formation.

Ice is a significant issue. It doesn't matter how cold it is outside; the cooling isn't distributed throughout your home! Ice forms in places where you can't feel it, which isn't ideal.

Ice can also melt over time, causing a slew of moisture issues that you'll have to deal with.
