Why is Your AC Frozen? Find Out Here!

Preparing Your Boynton Beach Home for a Scorching Spring!

Our certified AC technicians at East Coast Mechanical Inc. (ECM) suggest that in the spring and fall of each calendar year, Coral Springs homeowners have preventative AC maintenance performed on their HVAC units. During this necessary session, the AC technician will look for things that could cause mechanical failures during the upcoming seasons.

Things like worn out belts, blower motors in bad repair and clogged filters are on the top of the list. Many people don’t realize that their units need to be serviced. Think of it like a car. A vehicle that is never maintained will eventually fail to run. What if you never changed the oil in your car? The same philosophy is used for the units and their need for maintenance.

When the heat is sweltering outside, you want your unit to keep your home and your family cool and comfortable. Unfortunately, when AC season is in full swing, ECM often receives calls that a unit has frozen, or developed ice on the outside. A frozen unit can cause a lot of problems, and there is a danger of messing up the condenser and other parts. If you see ice on the outside of your AC unit, turn it off and call ECM to schedule an appointment with one of our certified AC technicians at 561-585-9850 today.
