Is Your Air Conditioner Freezing Up?

Have you ever noticed ice forming on the coils of your Boise air conditioner and thought it was a positive sign? You might think it's great that the unit you use to blow cold air is Icing over. Ice surrounding your A/C unit does not improve the unit’s performance. In actuality, the A/C unit is on its last leg and there is no telling when it might die out. The blower fan will keep running but warm air will come out of your vents. An icy A/C unit needs to be checked as soon as possible, so that you can prevent future expenses and prevent your unit from possibly dying out. Whenever you have an icy unit, there are three reasons why this may be happening:

  • There is a restriction within your A/C unit’s refrigerant line.
  • Your A/C unit is low on refrigerant.
  • The evaporator coil has a lack of air coming across.

The issue with the evaporator coil normally has to do with having a dirty filter, dirty blower wheel, or dirty coil. There can also be an incorrect blower motor, although this is rare unless you have replaced the blower motor since the unit was new.. Either of these problems means you should have our professionals at Greens Heating and Air inspect or check your A/C unit. We know what to look for and how to fix it.
