One of the most common problems that people experience with their air conditioning system is when it freezes.

Steps To Take When Your Air Conditioner Freezes

Turn Off Your AC

The first thing you should do is turn off your air conditioning unit. This will allow your equipment to “thaw”. If you want to speed up the process, you can run the fan on your HVAC system, just make sure that it isn’t set to the “cool” setting. You can also take a hair dryer and use it to warm the coils to help it thaw a bit faster.

Check For Clogs And Empty Drain Pan

While you’re waiting for your air conditioner to thaw, check the drain or condensate line to make sure that it is not clogged. You should also empty the drain pan while you’re at it.

Change Air Filter

Another common cause of a frozen air conditioner is running your HVAC system with a dirty air filter. The filter should be changed every month so your HVAC equipment can run effectively.

Clear And Open Air Vents In The Home

Your HVAC system needs to have adequate airflow to function properly. Just like a dirty air filter can cause it to work harder than necessary and possibly eventually freeze, air vents that are closed or blocked can impede airflow and cause freezing and inefficient operation. Make sure to clear and open all air vents in your home.

Have A HVAC Tech Inspect Unit

There are other problems that can cause your air conditioner to freeze. For example, if refrigerant level is low or the fan is not running at the proper speed, freezing is likely to occur. You could also have a problem with your thermostat. These are issues that will typically require a trained HVAC technician.

Once your air conditioner is thawed, you can turn it back on and set it to cool. If your air conditioner continues to freeze, it’s time to call in a professional HVAC contractor.

This entry was posted in HVAC and tagged , , on by .

If you have ever thought of the best way to control and easily adjust the temperature in your home while keeping your energy bills as low as possible, we advise you to choose a programmable thermostat.

Read on to understand just what a programmable thermostat is as well as its benefits.

What Is A Programmable Thermostat?

Programmable Thermostat-Cool Breeze Comfort SolutionsGenerally, a thermostat is a device that is installed to regulate the operation of mechanical or electronic heating and cooling systems with regards to the set temperature results. A programmable thermostat integrates new and innovative functionalities to adjust temperature settings automatically, and maintain the required room conditions at different times of the day or night or week. In other words, a programmable thermostat is thermostat that you can program with an innovative digital design.

Some programmable thermostats even come in wireless formats, which enhance easier and more flexible installation and temperature control while maintaining similar functionalities as conventionally wired thermostats. Programmable thermostats differ from the older mechanical thermostats, most of which don’t have programmability and advanced temperature control functionalities.

Differences With And Benefits Of A Programmable Thermostat

Installing a programmable thermostat is beneficial in a number of ways. First off, they are a lot more accurate than their analog or mechanical counterparts. Mechanical thermostats (manual turn dial) can be slightly off from what you think they’re set at which can in turn waste energy and increase your utility bill. Also, turn dial thermostats respond slowly to temperature changes, compared to programmable thermostats.

What’s great about a programmable thermostat is that you can program it for times that no one will be home (work/school), for sleeping and when your family is away on vacation. When everyone’s away, this will allow your HVAC unit to not work as hard or come on as often to cool or heat your home, thus saving you money. You can set your unit to then come on a bit before you get home from work or vacation, ensuring that you have a comfortable return.

Heating and cooling is a major component of energy use in many homes and businesses. Installing a programmable thermostat will save you money as well as the earth’s resources.
