Why Is AC Refrigerant Line Frozen? Chandler AC Repair

Call Chandler AC Repair

The AC refrigerant line might occasionally develop ice or frost regarding HVAC issues, especially with older equipment. At these times, you may need Chandler AC repair to fix the issue as other problems may arise.


What Causes AC Refrigerant Line To Freeze?

The evaporator coils becoming too cold is the leading cause of your AC's refrigerant lines freezing. We'll briefly discuss how and what the evaporator coil accomplishes when it's functioning correctly to help you understand this notion.


An Evaporator Coil

The evaporator coil uses refrigerant to cool the air in your HVAC system. When operating correctly, the evaporator cools the air within your house by absorbing the heat from the air there.

However, if that heat exchange mechanism is restricted, your evaporator coil will be less effective at absorbing heat, which may cause ice or frost to build up on the coils.

Ice may build up on the refrigerant line if your AC unit is used under these circumstances for an extended period (you'll notice this if you notice ice accumulation on the insulation surrounding the refrigerant line).


Common Causes of Frozen Refrigerant Lines:

  • The evaporator coils are leaking refrigerant.
  • The evaporator coils have too much dust and debris on them.
  • Your AC vents can be blocked or closed.
  • Your air filters need to be cleaned.
  • The blower fan motor in your home is broken.
  • You have insufficient refrigerant levels.

What should you do if the insulation around the refrigerant line to the air conditioner has ice on it?

  1. As soon as you notice ice developing on your refrigerant line, Experts from Rescue One Air advise you to turn off your air conditioner and adjust the thermostat to "fan" mode.
  2. Second, ensure sure your air filter is free of debris. Replace it right away if it's dirty. Additionally, check to see if your air vents are blocked.
  3. Third, get in touch with a reputable Chandler AC repair business to diagnose and fix your AC unit.
