If your air conditioner freezes up, the first thing to do is turn it off and let it thaw. Then give the On Time Experts a call and we can figure out what’s going on with your system.
It could be a couple of things. It’s possible your system is just low on refrigerant, which means you have a leak in the system. It may also be airflow. A dirty filter, blower, or maybe even a dirty indoor coil can cause improper air flow.
You can avoid a freeze by at least checking your filters once a month, and possibly changing them out. Make sure you have your system maintained at least once a year to keep your blowers and coils clean.
If your system is too frozen, it can cause major water damage. If the indoor unit freezes and isn’t getting proper airflow, it creates a liquid that comes back to the compressor. It could take the compressor out.
Proper maintenance will help you avoid a system freeze, but if it happens, turn your system off and turn on the fan to let it thaw. Wait a couple of hours and then give us a call so we can get you up and running. That number is 469-336-3435.
