WHAT HAPPENS WHEN ICE FORMS ON YOUR A/C?

This week, individuals throughout the Hudson Valley region have enjoyed comfortable temperatures. However, with summer approaching, 90 degree days are likely to make a comeback. On these unbearably hot summer days, nothing feels better than the comfort of a home air conditioning unit. But what happens if the unit freezes?

One of the most common issues experienced by homeowners is a frozen A/C unit. It may seem impossible for a system that’s working at full capacity amid high temperatures to freeze – however, air flow restrictions and refrigerant leaks can cause this to happen. The former is easy to resolve and is typically the result of a dirty air filter. To prevent this (and other problems) from occurring, be sure to change your air filter regularly and schedule regular maintenance checks on the unit to keep it working efficiently. If you suspect a leak may be the issue, it is best to contact a professional to repair the unit or replace the system entirely.
