Troubleshooting A Frozen Evaporator Coil
One of the most common AC repairs we see here at Western involves the evaporator coil freezing over. When this happens, the air conditioning unit is not able to generate much cool air to transport into your home. Check out our video below for tips on how to tell if this is what is wrong with your unit and how you may be able to fix it yourself without a service call!
When determining whether to pay to fix your home cooling system, or just purchase a new unit consider the following factors:
- Take into account the age of your air conditioner. When deciding whether to repair or replace your air conditioner, age is a significant consideration. EnergyStar suggests updating your air conditioner every 10 to 15 years. If your air conditioning system is eight years old or older, it may not be worth the expense of repair unless it is a simple remedy, such as a worn fan belt or a clogged condenser unit.
- To save energy across the country, the federal government is phasing out Freon. As a result, Freon prices are rising dramatically. If your air conditioner utilizes Freon, you'll need to replace it someday to transition to the new R410A refrigerant. If your unit is breaking down or having troubles due to a lack of Freon, it's probably time to consider a replacement.
- Do you get the impression that your air conditioning system is always breaking down? Have you found yourself calling HVAC specialists on a regular basis to fix yet another problem with your system? If this is the case, regular maintenance may quickly mount expensive — and doing so on a piece of older equipment doesn't make sense. Investing in a modern unit will not only spare you the difficulties of regular HVAC service visits, but it will also save you money in the long term.
You do have a few options for DIY troubleshooting if your air conditioner isn't cooling.
First, make sure the thermostat is set to "cool" and that the desired temperature in this room is lower than the present one. Try replacing the batteries if it doesn't work, especially if the thermostat screen is not functioning. Then, the circuit breaker should be adjusted correctly. An interior and an exterior breaker are common features of circuit breakers. Verify that the switch's settings are all correct.
Remove anything blocking the unit's ventilation. Heat cannot be removed from your house because a clogged air filter restricts airflow. Additionally, unclean air filters lead to exceedingly poor indoor air quality. So try changing the filter if your air conditioner isn't cooling.
Your air conditioner might not switch on due to a number of thermostat problems. Disconnected or damaged cables are among the most prevalent issues. Your air conditioner won't operate if the wires are frayed, disconnected, or unclean.
A broken thermostat is another frequent issue. The thermostat won't enable the air conditioner to turn on if it has a problem. It's critical to replace your thermostat as soon as possible if you're having issues with your AC.
