Why Is My Air Conditioner Icing Up?

Oddly enough, it’s fairly common for an AC to freeze up just when you need it most—in the heat of mid-summer.

Technically, it’s the evaporator coil that freezes inside the unit first. The coil transfers hot air from inside the home and sends it outside. One reason for a frozen evaporator coil is airflow restriction. The first thing we ask homeowners is to change dirty air filters and to make sure all the vents are open. When your air conditioner’s heat transfer process is disrupted by the above mishaps, the AC evaporator coil super-cools, and freezes solid.
