What Is A Frozen AC?

September 28, 2023 | Blog

A faulty air conditioner can make the warmer months in Mississippi a living nightmare. Ironically, your AC unit is capable of freezing at any time of the year. When this occurs, it can be challenging to find comfort in your home!

How Do I Know I Have A Frozen Air Conditioner?

There are several indicators to look out for when it comes to your AC unit freezing up. Some of the most common include:

  • Loud hissing noises coming from your appliance when it’s turned on
  • Warm air coming from the vents instead of cool air
  • Very weak airflow and poor circulation throughout your home
  • Ice crystals forming along your AC unit

Freezing can occur from various internal issues, such as coolant leaks or clogged filters. When coolant leaks occur, the chemicals condense and freeze in your unit, preventing your system from functioning properly. Clogged filters can also cause this issue since air can’t circulate through the system. This problem creates condensation build-up, which can freeze in the unit.

How To Thaw Your Air Conditioner

When it comes to thawing out your icy AC unit quickly and efficiently, the process is fairly simple.

The first step is to switch off your thermostat so that your system is no longer pumping out cold air and forming ice. Next, switch on the fan within your unit so air can circulate through the components and defrost your device. Though it may take some time, your AC will eventually be ice-free and ready to be used again.

Very Thankful for Their Service

They installed our old system and took care if all maintenance since 1995. This year it finally needed replacing. They installed a quality Trane system and it’s been running efficiently ever since. Very thankful for their service.
