Low thermostat hot and cold temperatures cause frozen evaporator coils

After a few minutes, the ice on the coils melted and the air started to blow colder

One of the most proper problems that can occur with your heating and cooling system happens when the evaporator coils become frozen, but the evaporator coils are responsible for absorbing the heat in your home, however when there is a concern with cooling, condensation can freeze on the evaporator coils. There are a few reasons why the evaporator coils might freeze. The first and most proper reason is due to a lack of airflow, however if there isn’tair blowing against the coils, then they cannot absorb the heat, and a dirty air filter can also restrict airflow and cause evaporator coils to freeze! Low refrigerant is another reason why your system might have frozen evaporator coils. This is the concern that occurred in my apartment last weekend. My fiance and I were throwing a summer time party and the a/c stopped making cold air. The people I was with and I had to end the party early and call a repair company to service the problem. They came the same day to investigate the issue and service our problem. I thought every one of us were doomed to substitute the equipment, but the Heating & A/C repair supplier told us that our refrigerant levels were low… He didn’t find any leaks, but he added a significant amount of refrigerant to the system. After a few minutes, the ice on the coils melted and the air started to blow colder. Even though our summer time party was a complete disaster, every one of us were ecstatic that every one of us did not have to substitute the whole machine. Instead of spending a few hundred dollars, every one of us would have spent multiple thoUSnds of dollars.
