Here we will talk about reasons why your air conditioning system encounter those problems and will give you the possible solution and how to deal with it.
To give you more idea why your air condition has an ice build-up, the science behind the ice build up has something to do with the Joule-Thomson Effect, In thermodynamics, the Joule-Thomson Effect describes the temperature change of a real gas or liquid when it is forced through a valve or porous plug while keeping it insulated so that no heat is exchanged with the environment. To have a right process in the system, it is important to have your air conditioning system enough refrigerant and airflow.
Most of us won’t mind the science behind it, it might be so scientific and only few can relate to it, let’s get the point, below are the reasons why you have an ice build-up on your aircon:
1. Clogged Filter
Clogged filter can cause serious problems in your air conditioning system, recommended to have it check and change every one month, it will not only cause ice build up on your air condition but can also lead to a more serious health problem with your family as it has clogged dust and dirt allover your filter, when the air blows, there is high chance your family could inhale the polluted air causing to have sneezing, cough, allergies and lung problem related; It will not only give you stress because of having ice and health issue but it is also one of the reasons why you have a high electricity bill, as clogged filter makes the air conditioning system work harder to produce cool air.
2. Low Refrigerant level
It is also one of the reasons why your air condition has an ice build-up, because the refrigerant level on the air condition is too low might be due to leak or improper refrigerant charging. When the air conditioning system has low refrigerant, the pressure on the system drops and It will cause the evaporator coil to get an abnormal cold.
3. Not enough airflow
One reason could be your air conditioning system is suffocating, it is not working properly because it cannot get enough air to the system. Usually this reason is because of having clogged and dirty filter, that is why it is recommended to have a monthly check up with your unit.
