Why is my AC frozen in July?











Believe it or not, it can be over 90 degrees outside and your AC system can freeze over. This is caused by a restriction in airflow. When you turn on your AC for the summer, the contrast in hot air mixing with cold air creates condensation on the AC coils in your air handler. Condensation is okay, but if air cant pass through the coils, that cold air becomes stagnant and concentrated. Two very common causes of this issue are a dirty air filter or clogged AC coils. Even if your system hasn't frozen over, these issues cause your system to work much harder than it needs to, raising your energy costs, as well. Filter maintainance and a clean system can save your equipment from critical damage or even system failure, which both come with critical costs. Consider getting your system checked out before AC season to prevent a system freezup.
