When there’s ice on your air conditioner or heat pump in summer, you have a problem.
It’s important that you turn off the system at once. There could be many causes for the problem; some are simple to fix while others are complicated.
Let’s start with the quick fixes, which you may be able to do yourself:
The air filter may be blocked or closed.
Windows are open, forcing the air conditioner to work too hard.
The thermostat may be set too low – below 70 degrees, for example.
Something is blocking the vents.
More complicated problems require a professional:
The refrigerant charge may be low.
There could be problems with the fan belt, the fan relay, the thermostat, the blower wheel, the expansion valve, or other parts.
