Question about Heating & Cooling
Hi, when your unit starts to freeze-up on the indoor unit and on the suction copper line on the outdoor unit, this is due to a loss of freon. Because in your case, the air is not as cool as it should be or normally is. Some will ice up if the filter has not been changed on a regular basis, and the evaporator coil gets plugged with dirt. When it starts to ice over, you will loose 50% to 95% of your air flow. As long as you have good air flow, but not as cool with the ice ( you will loose some air flow if its been iced up for awhile ) you have a very small leak in the system and will need a recharge. They will normally leak at a place of least resistance like at the schradder valve where the freon is put in. If you have a older system, it may be in the evaporator coil. It depends on how much you have lost. You will need to call out a licensed tech to charge this unit. This is your problem indeed. Please keep me posted and informed on this. When you rate me, please be kind as I know you will. I thank you for this.
