You need to take the cover off and you should see some aluminum fins like whats on the outside unit the blower will either blow across them or pull air accross them. Clean them with a wire brush and soapy water if you dont have coil cleaner which can be purchased at hardware stores

The Outdoor unit will be easy 1st diconeect power at panel, or disconnect box near unit. Remove top of unit, be careful not to damage fan blades. Spray coils (fins) with a light degreaser let is soak for 5 mins. wash out coils from inside the unit out. Spray straight on so you push the dirt out the other side.

Re assemble and start up.

Indoor coil will be accessed by removing front cover and you may have another cover to expose the inside of the coil fins. That is where you need to clean. Spray degreaser on coils and rinse off. If its gunked up then use a wire brush 1st. Carefull not to bend the fins over.

Check the drain pan at bottom of the coil to be sure it's not full of stuff. Blow out if needed.

You should be clean and ready for the season

Brand New 2 weeks old 4 ton Trane compressor leaks a lot of water onto pad


If the unit is running in cold weather than there is ice building up on the coils located outside. This is normal in that the unit is running in heat pump mode heating inside and cooling outside, After the unit detects the ice build up it briefly reverses the cycle heating the outside coils melting(defrosting) the ice which you observe as water on the pad.

The video gives you an example of the defrost cycle!

How a Central Air Conditioning System Works
amn_howac.jpg


Facts:
  • The typical central air conditioning system is a split system, with an outdoor air conditioning, or "compressor bearing unit" and an indoor coil, which is usually installed on top of the furnace in the home.
  • Using electricity as its power source, the compressor pumps refrigerant through the system to gather heat and moisture from indoors and remove it from the home.
  • Heat and moisture are removed from the home when warm air from inside the home is blown over the cooled indoor coil. The heat in the air transfers to the coil, thereby "cooling" the air.
  • The heat that has transferred to the coil is then "pumped" to the exterior of the home, while the cooled air is pumped back inside, helping to maintain a comfortable indoor temperature.
  • Central air conditioning can also be provided through a package unit or a heat pump.

Benefits:
  • Indoor comfort during warm weather - Central air conditioning helps keep your home cool and reduces humidity levels.
  • Cleaner air - As your central air conditioning system draws air out of various rooms in the house through return air ducts, the air is pulled through an air filter, which removes airborne particles such as dust and lint. Sophisticated filters may remove microscopic pollutants, as well. The filtered air is then routed to air supply ductwork that carries it back to rooms.
  • Quieter operation - Because the compressor bearing unit is located outside the home, the indoor noise level from its operation is much lower than that of a free-standing air conditioning unit.

How can I make the ac quieter inside the house?


If you have hard ducts, you can use some flex duct between the supply plenum and the hard ducts as a way to quiet the noise down.

My A/C blowing air, but it is not cool. It has started freezing up. We just replaced the air filters and since then it is freezing up. We even gently cleaned the a/c coils before replacing the filters. ...


Hello, sounds like it is either a low charge or lack of airflow, what type of filter are you using? sometimes those filters that claim to be super effecient will actually cut down on your airflow and cause the ac to freeze up.

Recharge air condition


Hello,

If you have solid ice build up on the "big" pipe (suction line) and very little air coming out of the vents, it's more an air flow problem; Inside fan not working, dirty coil inside (evaporator) or block filter. Open the cabinet inside and take a look there first.

This should be easy to fix; if the filter is dirty, replace it. should be done every month anyway.

If the coil is dirty, depending on access there's a 50/50 chance you can clean it you're self. If you can't you will have to call a technician who will pump all the freon in the outside unit, disconnect the coil, clean it & reinstall it, that should run you $200 to $300

You say there is a little air coming out so the fan is probably working, but if not, you will to find out why the fan is not running. That's electrical, could as easy as the thermostat is not turning the fan on to replacing the fan it self.

It is possible to have frost coming back if you are undercharge (low on freon) But the conditions have to be just right. A Journeyman mechanical carrying an EPA license working under A license contractor is the minimum you need to be able to buy freon since the 90's. that's legal of coarse.

To charge a system you also need a set of gauges and you need to know the working pressure of the system depending of the freon inside.

I think you only have a block filter or a dirty evaporator, possibly a collapse duct.

Good luck
