The ice buildup comes from low refrigerant or poor airflow.
Is your indoor fan runnig OK?
Are your evaporator coils clean of dust and dirt?
If fan is good and coils are clean, call a service tech to check your refrigerant charge.

My Heatpump Unit in the lounge is dripping water onto carpet. I have it set on 22aircon checked the filters and are all clean. Bought this house last year and there was no Manual left. Can you help


in my experience there can be two reasons for this.

The drain is blocked. Often there is a kind of jellified sludge that just needs cleaning from the drain hole. Pour a cup of Javex Bleach down it afterwards.

I have also seen ice build up on pipes as they come out of the compressor. You will see a small ball of dripping frost and ice. You just turn the unit off until it melts and then insulate it with foam or insulating wrap.

My AC keeps freezing. Condenser pipes freezes all the time and the repair men just keeps adding freon. What is the problem?


Hello MCOMSTI You have a freon leak that MUST be found & repiared so the system will keep the charge.A fast leak is eaiser to find,look for a oil/grease stain anywhere on the system,when you loose 1/2 system charge you make ice.

One unit works out of two


Serviceman! Ice build up is a sign of low charge or poor air flow over the inside coil. Improper draining is either a unlevel indoor unit or blockage in condensate drain. There is no way other than a leak in the piping for refrigerant to leak out. Have another technician put a pressure test on the piping and recharge the refrigerant.

Split system getting cold at first then just not cooling the room


Split Air Conditioners are not meant to run constantly. so check this first . you may have a faulty component i.e. compressor, condenser, evaporator, or evap fan. Depending on your technician you may have gotten ripped off. You need to find out if he checked the system for refrigerant (gas) leaks. A good way to tell if your ac is leaking is feel the low and high side copper pipe in between the inside and outside units.
the smaller pipe (high side) should be hot be carefull maybe touch it with an ice cube. The Large pipe should be cold but not iced over.
if there is ice on any component you should call a qualified tech. you probably have a leak. you should also clean your air filters which are right above the vents. I am a certified AC mechanic and i have seen this problem. in Iraq because of ambient temperatures being high the systems take alot of abuse and we dont fix them because repair costs exceed replacement costs alot of the time. good luck.

Air Conditioning Unit is leaking badly, has mold and ice.


soundls like the condensate drain is clogged and coil is dirty. look for a plastic pipe inlet where water would flow to.. you may be able to clear it by blowing it out with compressed air. you can also pour bleach into it to address the mold problem. if the coil is icing up it is because it is dirty. to verify this, let the unit run in ac mode for about an hour and check to see if you have air flow from the vents. if you do not, then the cooling coil is covered in ice, thus blocking air flow. you should have a qualified ac person clean the coil and check the refrigerant charge on the unit. one thing to consider, change your ac filter often, at least once a month in hot weather.

Air conditioning unit


On a "Non Heat Pump" unit, icing of the pipes is not good. It is an indication that you either have a low freon level (Charge), low load, wrong superheat.
A low load usually means, in this case, something wrong with the air flow. Clogged filter, wrong fan speed, something blocking the return air grill, like a chair/ blanket, etc.
If low on charge, the evap (Indoor Coil) will ice up and the ice will then slowly creep along the pipe untill it gets to the outdoor unit. This is really no good. Air cannot go thru solid ice so naturally there is no cooling happening.
If a company replaces the outdoor unit (Condensing Unit), there is no warranty on the indoor unit. I do not know of any company that will repair an indoor coil (Evap). Just not smart money. They have to capture the freon, open the system, make the repair, ensure the correct level of freon is in the system, and most time, add a filter/ dryer for additional filtering and drying of the freon. With all that, no one is going to patch a leak on an old coil because if it leaks now, it's going to have another soon. You'll just be chasing leaks and spend money after money. Hope that makes sense. HVAC companys have to follow the EPA rules too. Leaving a system leaking above a certain percent of it's total charge is a major no-no. They will not do it.
Hope this helps clear up a few things and good luck.

The motor in our AC has gone out 2 times in less than 5 years


I would ask what kind of service was done on your system over the period of time from the time you first had it installed? Were there service calls for leaks in your system and were the leaks located and repaired ? When the first replacement compressor was installed was a filter dryer installed? Is your area subject to voltage variations? New condensing units normally are covered for five years on the compressor.

Four things cause icing up:
( 1 ) Is your filter clean? dirty filter blocks air flow causing iceing up. replace filter
( 2 ) Do you hear the Indoor fan running? If the fans not running the unit ices up. Check Capacitor to fan if good.
Bad fan motor... replace fan motor and cap. If both good
( 3 ) Check Air Handler evap coil if dirty and or clogged, restricts air flow causing unit to ice up. Use toilet brush to clean.
This is always a big possibility if you have pets.
( 4 ) If the above are not present then you are low on refrigerant.
Low refrigerant will cause icing up because the gas does not flash properly. This will require a service tech.
refrigerant leaks can be as simple as a loose cap on the king valve, leaking schrader core, to coil leak.
Have the service tech show you the leak. If it is in a copper line it can be fixed. If the system is over 10 years old limit the amount you want to spend. 10 years is the standard life expectantcy anymore. Good luck
