An air conditioner can eventually freeze up for numerous reasons. Sometimes, it may be a simple fix that you can do yourself, or you may need to reach out to an HVAC company. Doing a little bit of investigation can help you determine the cause of the problem and help you to find the best solution.

Here are a few of the top reasons that an air conditioner may freeze up.

1. Not Enough Airflow

Inadequate airflow makes it impossible for your air conditioner to keep your home cool. Eventually, your air conditioner will freeze up as a result of minimal airflow. Replacing your air filter and making sure that all of your vents are open are important maintenance practices to ensure that your system has enough airflow to operate.

2. Malfunctioning Blower Motor

A blower motor that’s not working right can also cause your air conditioner to freeze up. The coils will eventually start to freeze once the blower’s motor stops working. You may also notice rattling or an odd sound coming from the AC system once your blower motor begins to fail. Contacting an HVAC company is critical in taking care of this problem.

3. Collapsed Duct

Air will stop flowing throughout your house if you have a problem with your ducts. A blocked or collapsed air duct can create significant airflow problems with your AC unit as the coils will eventually begin to freeze because of a lack of warm air. Getting your air ducts inspected by an HVAC company is always a good idea to ensure that everything is working correctly.
