Why Do Air Conditioners Freeze Up?

Your air conditioner just froze? Air conditioners can freeze due to various reasons.

Improper Air Flow
The main one being lack of proper airflow that keeps the coil warm. The loop needs warm air to stay above the freezing point while remaining cool. If this is not possible the coils freeze, and malfunction before all the condensed water is drained from the unit.
The air filters can also impede airflow and cause a freeze up. Also, this problem can occur due to a faulty fan and low refrigerant operation. When the refrigerant levels are low, the coil becomes too cold, and the fan prevents smooth movement of air.

Malfunctioned Thermostat
A faulty thermostat combined with drainage problems will make the air conditioners freeze up. When the coils freeze, the AV continues running, but it doesn’t cool your home correctly. It uses a lot of power while your home remains too hot to give you the comfort you need. At this point, you will notice all is not well with your cooling system.

Is It Really Frozen?
It is not easy to tell why your air conditioners have frozen, so you need to call a technician to check and detect the problem. The compressor gets extensive damage if the frozen coils are not repaired or replaced. An old air conditioner may be too weak to fix and will only keep increasing your energy expenses. A professional specialist will advise you on what do; you can repair or replace the whole system.
