The Problems With Ice on an Air Conditioner

July 22nd, 2019

A common question that professional HVAC technicians hear is, “Should there be ice on my air conditioner’s coils?” The answer is no, but we understand why people are confused about whether this is normal or not.

After all, the air pushed out of the vents in an air conditioning system feels like it’s chilled, as if it were run across ice. It’s a quick jump from that thought to believing that ice must have some role in air conditioning a space, or at least that ice is a normal byproduct of the cooling process.

It isn’t! In fact, ice along the indoor coils of an air conditioner (the evaporator coils) is a warning sign of a problem. It might be a minor issue.
