One of the most official complications that can occur with your heating & cooling plan happens when the evaporator coils become frozen! The evaporator coils are responsible for absorbing the heat in your home.
When there is a complication with cooling, condensation can freeze on the evaporator coils.
There are a few reasons why the evaporator coils might freeze. The first & most official reason is due to a lack of airflow! If there is not air blowing against the coils, then they cannot absorb the heat, then a dirty air filter can also restrict airflow & cause evaporator coils to freeze, but low refrigerant is another reason why your plan might have frozen evaporator coils. This is the complication that occurred in our new home last weekendâ€¦ My wife & I were throwing a summer time get together & the A/C stopped making cold air. The two of us had to end the get together early & call a service supplier to maintenance the problem. They came the same day to investigate the issue & maintenance our problem. I thought all of us were doomed to replace the equipment, but the Heating, Ventilation, & A/C service serviceman told us that our refrigerant levels were low, however she didn’t find any leaks, but she added a significant amount of refrigerant to the system. After a few hours, the ice on the coils melted & the air started to blow colder, and even though our summer time get together was a complete disaster, all of us were ecstatic that all of us did not have to replace the whole machine. Instead of spending a few hundred dollars, all of us would have spent several thoUSAnds of dollars.
