4 Steps You Should Take If Your AC’s Coil is Frozen Solid

Residential HVAC System

Even during the hottest days of summer, the coil of your heating and air conditioning system can become frozen solid. Poor airflow due to dirty air filters, too-low refrigerant levels, and a poorly operating fan can all cause this pesky problem. Jerry’s Air Conditioning & Heating wants to help you keep your air conditioner functioning at its very best.

Here are four steps you should take if your air conditioner’s coil is frozen solid:

#1: Check Your Air Conditioning Filter

Your air conditioning filter’s main job is to keep the coil, along with other components of the unit, free from dust and contaminants. A filthy air conditioner filter can restrict air flow to the unit, causing the temperature of the system to drop and the coil to freeze up. Air conditioning filters should be cleaned monthly to guarantee optimal air flow.

#2: Have Your Air Ducts Cleaned

Dust and contaminate building up in your air ducts could be slowing airflow to the unit. If your air conditioner is frozen solid, it could be a sign you need to have your duct work cleaned.

#3 Defrost Your Air Conditioner

Turn your thermostat off and your fan on to begin thawing your air conditioning unit. It should take your unit a few hours to defrost fully.

#4 Have Your System Serviced

Our certified and experienced technicians are available 24-hours a day, 7-days a week to perform an inspection and make the necessary repairs to get your unit back to performing optimally.
