Why do cooling units freeze up in summer?

Have you ever been in your lake apartment on a warm summer time day and realized something is wrong with the AC.

Before, it was blowing cool air into the house. But, things have shifted and it’s blowing moderate air, however you might be tempted to check if someone was messing with the control unit settings! However, that’s not the reason your A/C unit is no longer cooling the house. The most likely reason is your A/C unit has frozen even though it’s quite warm outside. An A/C professional will find the refrigerant lines encased in ice. This then affects the ability of the A/C unit to blow cool air into your appealing home. While it might seem odd, this is a regular occurrence with A/C units while in the warm days of summer, and just hire an A/C professional and they’ll help restore the unit back to proper function! Usually, your A/C unit relies on temperature, air flow and method pressure to function effectively. If there is any disruption in this delicate balance, you might end up with a faulty A/C unit. When there’s disruption in the air flow, for example, the refrigerant lines freeze up. Air flow disruption in A/C units occurs due to dirty air filters, malfunction of the blower motor or fan or a blockage in the air duct. In such cases, the A/C professional will have to labor fast to scrub the system, change the air filter or repair the faulty blower motor. In other instances, the ice forms because of clogged drain lines; 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.
