Have you ever been in your condo on a hot summer time morning as well as realized something is wrong with the AC.
- Before, it was blowing cool air into the house.
But, things have shifted as well as it’s blowing moderate air, and you might be tempted to check if someone was messing with the temperature control settings. However, that’s not the reason your AC equipment is no longer cooling the house. The most likely reason is your AC equipment has frozen even though it’s quite hot outside. An AC professional will find the refrigerant lines encased in ice. This then affects the ability of the AC equipment to blow cool air into your charming home. While it might seem odd, this is a regular occurrence with AC units while I was in the hot nights of summer, then just hire an AC professional as well as they’ll help restore the equipment back to proper function, but usually, your AC equipment relies on temperature, air flow as well as system pressure to function effectively. If there is any disruption in this delicate balance, you might end up with a faulty AC unit. When there’s disruption in the air flow, for example, the refrigerant lines freeze up. Air flow disruption in AC units occurs due to dirty air filters, malfunction of the blower motor or fan or a blockage in the HVAC duct. In such cases, the AC professional will have to work fast to scrub the system, change the air filter or repair the faulty blower motor. In other instances, the ice forms because of jammed drain lines, then drain lines don’t only leak when they have some blockage, they can cause the refrigerant lines to freeze; Removing all the algae is the best way to get rid of the blockage.
