The Sources of Ice on an AC Evaporator Coil

Monday, November 14th, 2016 by Tom Vatter

Since air conditioning systems blow out chilled air, many homeowners are not necessarily surprised when they see ice forming along the coils. They tend to think that it’s normal and that once the AC cycles off, the ice will simply melt away and fall into the drip pan below. This is a detrimental assumption to make, however.

Ice should never appear on your air conditioner. If it does, then there is something seriously wrong with your air conditioner. The ice won’t go away permanently if you remove it yourself—and in fact that can be harmful to your system anyway. The ice development will actually increase if the underlying problem is not taken care of. As long as ice is present, your AC system will suffer a reduction in cooling power. So what’s the underlying issue? (more…)

How a Bad Condenser Can Lead to Significant AC Issues

Monday, October 17th, 2016 by Tom Vatter

There’s probably no need to tell you just how stressful it can be to be stuck with an air conditioning system that is in disrepair—particularly when our temperatures are still reaching the 90’s. You may be tempted to hold off on repairs if you suspect they’re necessary, as we are nearing the end of summer, after all. However, this could be a big mistake.

It’s always better to address problems as early as possible in order to avoid major repairs or premature system breakdown in the future. One AC problem you definitely don’t want to wait to fix is a bad condenser. This component is housed in the outdoor unit of your system, along with the compressor. It condenses the refrigerant from a gas into a liquid as it moves to the indoor evaporator. This is one of the most major components of your air conditioner, and its failure can significantly impact your AC unit’s performance, efficiency, and lifespan. Over time, that can shorten the lifespan of your furnace, as well as create more serious repair issues. (more…)
