So you’re at home on a hot day … you’re running the air conditioner, but something seems off. It’s not keeping you as cool as you think it should. Since you can’t seem to get comfortable, you go and check the thermostat, and it seems to be working just fine. Time to check the actual AC unit … and then you see it. Ice.
But ice is a normal part of the cooling process, right? Well, no. Ice actually has no part in the cooling process, and if you see ice developing anywhere on your air conditioner (most often this is going to be on the evaporator coil) then you have a problem on your hands. But we’re here to help! Read on as we talk a bit more about this problem.
