Freezing Air Conditioner

Why is my a/c freezing up?

Air conditioners (A/C’s) are replacing the trusty old ceiling fans at a very rapid pace. But unlike the simple ceiling fans, ACs are complicated systems with many parts working in tandem. So, when we need that gust of artificially cooling breeze on a hot summer day, we press a button and there it is. Unbeknownst to us, there are times when the AC just freezes up. Unfortunately, these are times when we need it to work the most. No matter what you do it just doesn’t work. Not even if you manage to throw Thor’s hammer at it. Have you ever wondered why this happens?

Why Should You Go for Cooling Repair?

Wondering whether it is time to go in for A/C Repair Winter Haven?  There are two culprits that can ruin your already hot and sweaty day for you. The air filter, and the liquid refrigerant.

  1. Clogged air filter

That’s right. Even if you live in the best, cleanest city in the world, there are dust particles just waiting to cling to that air filter. When enough of them manage to stick on, the air filter gets clogged. And then you AC is unable to extract air from the room. Unless your AC has an automatic shut-off mechanism, it will feel as if the AC still works. But you will feel a noticeable difference in the volume of air.

It will be much less, and the operation of the compressor will be intermittent, almost as if it is choking.

  1. Refrigerant leak: –

We haven’t reached the age of nuclear powered air conditioners yet. So, we have to make do with a traditional cooling method of using a Chlorofluorocarbon (CFC). Think of it like the petrol or a diesel of an internal combustion engine. Without proper maintenance of the refrigerant pipes, there are chances of them developing cracks and spots. When these spread and break through the thickness, which is very thin for a home-owned A/C, the CFC begins to leak. And what happens when your car runs out of fuel? Exactly.

The same thing happens when your A/C runs out of CFC. It stops working. The key to having your A/C blow nice, cool air continuously is regular maintenance. You can probably take out the air filter and clean it out yourself. But what can you do about your refrigerant leak? Perhaps you might contact professionals from an HVAC company and top up your refrigerant. How long do you think it will last? And do you think they will seal off the cracks or breaks? The key is to look for the right cooling repair in Winter Haven, FL. You would be able to not just repair your A/C but ensure that you keep it running well with preventive maintenance each season.
