In last week's blog, one of the common air conditioner problems that we mentioned was a frozen evaporator coil. This problem is so common, in fact, that we thought it deserved its own post! So today we're going to talk about why evaporator coils are susceptible to freezing and what you should do if it ever occurs in your home.
Your evaporator coil is responsible for absorbing heat from your home's air. When this happens, condensation naturally builds up on your coils. Normally this isn't a problem. But if something goes wrong with the cooling process, that condensation can freeze over and cause your air conditioner to break down.
If you notice that your evaporator coil has frozen over, contact Jerry Kelly so we can find the source of the problem. It's helpful if you turn off your air conditioner before we arrive at your home so that it can defrost by the time we get there. After we discover the source of the problem, we'll fix it and advise you on how to avoid it from happening again!
If you have any questions about the proper placement of your thermostat, or if you'd like a cooling system serviced or installed in your home, contact Jerry Kelly, your St. Charles, MO, air conditioning company.
