No Airflow in my A/C system
A frozen Air-Conditioning Unit is common! Several common issues my cause your air conditioner to have frost on the copper refrigerant lines on the outdoor unit or on the indoor unit. Why? Here is a small list:
- Filters are dirty and the air flow over the evaporator coil is being restricted.
- A/C charge is low. Which means there is a possbile leak!
- A/C is over charged. Which means there is a root cause of a problem and a technician did not catch it or look for it!
- Outdoor Fan is not working or the indoor fan is not working or both!
- The outdoor coil or indoor coil is dirty and needs to be cleaned!
- There is a restriction in the refrigerant lines or a faulty refrigerant metering device.
This list is not all inclusive of the potential problems that can cause an air conditioner to freeze up! But, it is the most common issues found in the HVAC field.

This picture displays an actual blower motor and blower wheel removed from a furnace. The dirt and the build up on the blower wheel is obvious. What you can’t see is the energy cost increasing everyday the furnace operates with out being cleaned and or serviced properly. The dirt build up on the blower decreases it’s designed capacity to provide sufficient air flow to your home. Which in turn does not allow the air temperature to be maintained at a comfortable and consistent level. Therefore the HVAC system runs longer and works harder to provide the desired set temperature on the thermostat. This is why the energy cost to operate it continues to climb year after year!
Another by product of a dirty blower motor and blower wheel is the reduced life of the HVAC equipment! The HVAC equipment will need to run and operate longer to meet it’s demands. HVAC equipment replacement cost are not going down, only up!
Lastly your lack of comfort is the end result! Financially and Physically!

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) estimates that as much as 40% of the air flow from your Heating and Cooling System could be leaking out of your ductwork and not making it to your vents! Leaky ducts from loose duct, improper installation, pets, pests, dirt and improperly sized ductwork are some of the reasons!
Signals of potential ductwork issues include: cool and warm spots throughout the conditioned space, heating or cooling system runs all the time to keep the temperature consist in the structure, visible dirt on furniture just after being cleaned, mold around the vents, cool or warm air can be felt in the attice space or crawl space and or a moldy, damp smell is consistently present.
Your HVAC System is the biggest single energy consumer in a home.Which means you may be spending 40% too much in energy cost!
