When it gets scorching during the summer months, we tend to crank up the AC. This can cause our AC unit to work twice as hard to keep us cool. However, things aren’t so great when your AC ends up freezing over. When this happens, that can end up leaving your home feeling as hot inside as it does outside.
This problem is fairly common with homeowners, and many know the problem all too well. There are two main reasons why an AC will freeze, and knowing these two reasons might help you to prevent the problem in the future.
Blocked Air Flow
Not having enough airflow can be one potential for problems with your AC unit freezing. If the airflow is restricted, then there isn’t anything to keep the condensation on the coils from freezing. What causes this lack of airflow is typically a dirty air filter. Changing your air filter regularly is one way you can prevent a freeze from happening. You can set reminders on your phone to periodically change the air filter. Another way to avoid this is to contact Houston Admiral to help you with your annual tune-ups, which will keep your unit efficient and clean.
If your airflow is fine, then the other problem that could be causing your freeze could be a leak. When you are leaking coolant or Freon, then you will have a decision to make. Either you repair your AC unit or replace it. One way to make this choice is to ask yourself how old your unit is. If your unit is over ten years old, then it is probably time to replace it.
