There are many reasons your air conditioner coils could be freezing or icing up. You may have a Freon leak or have a bad component. A dirty air filter or dirty evaporator coil are also common causes of air conditioning freezing, and they are problems that can easily be prevented with regularly scheduled preventive maintenance.

If your system is freezing or icing up, we recommend you call Prestige Air Conditioning to diagnose the problem. In the mean time you should defrost the coils. To defrost the coils you can put your thermostat Fan in the “on” position but turn the system cooling “off”. It may take a few hours for all the ice to melt. Be aware that the melting ice may cause a water leak.

There are three basic reasons for air conditioner freeze ups, insufficient air flow, Refrigerant charge, Outdoor temperature. The two most common causes of insufficient air flow are dirty filters and under sized ducts. A dirty filter limits air flow which in turn allows the cooling coil’s temperature to drop below freezing. Replacing the filter, monthly, usually alleviates this problem. Under sized ducts will also cause the system to freeze. The refrigerant system teeters on a delicate balance. If the system is not charged correctly, the system will not function properly. This malfunction may result in the poor cooling output and/or freezing up. Only a qualified, certified service technician can properly test and charge a refrigerant system. If night time temperatures are too low, the system will not operate properly, and freeze up may occur. The outdoor unit does not function well in temperatures below 60 degrees F. A special “ambient temperature” control must be installed to allow the unit to run properly in cool temperatures, or you may open your windows and save energy.
