During summer, you are able to live a comfortable life despite the searing heat—provided that you have a properly working air conditioner. It takes away the heat from your home and distributes cooled air in every room. But what if your unit is no longer running as it should? What if it keeps on freezing up? What can you do?

Marsh Heating and Air Conditioning is your leading HVAC company in Fridley MN. In partnership with Lennox Industries, we offer a wide range of efficient, feature-packed AC units that deliver outstanding performance without excessive energy costs.

Why Your AC is Freezing

A freezing air conditioner can be caused by different factors, including the lack of airflow. The thing is, this problem can be traced from varying reasons, like a failing blower motor to the air intake. It can also be as simple as a clogged air filter. If anything in the airflow keeps warm air from flowing over the coils while the compressor is running continuously, the AC will freeze and fail to deliver your desired temperature.

Another reason for your air conditioner to freeze is low fan voltage. The system needs electricity to run its high-powered components to perform its task. If your fan or blower does not have enough power while the compressor keeps on running, expect your AC to freeze.

An insufficient refrigerant charge can also cause your AC to suffer from frozen coils. This substance is critical to the proper functioning of the system because it manages pressure. The compressor constricts the refrigerant after releasing the heat it collects. Then, the warm air converts liquid refrigerant into a gas, causing it to heat up and drop the pressure. The compressor then converts it into liquid and pumps it toward the blower fan in your house. But if there is insufficient refrigerant, the process happens too soon because there isn’t enough pressure. This issue results in frozen coils.

Sometimes, a freezing air conditioner can be fixed. But if the unit is too old, and if the problem is too complex, it’s better to consider getting a new unit instead. With that in mind, here is one air conditioner you might want to take a look into.

Features of the Lennox Elite® Series XC13 Air Conditioner

This air conditioner comes with a 5-Year Limited Warranty on the compressor and a 5-Year Limited Warranty on covered components. The XC13 may be eligible for valuable 10-Year Limited Extended Warranty coverage with product registration.

Every component of the XC13 has proven itself through extensive testing in our research labs. So you can take comfort in knowing that your conditioner will deliver reliable performance throughout the cooling season.

The compressor is the part of the air conditioner that pumps refrigerant to deliver the cooling your home needs. The XC13’s scroll compressor is engineered to perform reliably and efficiently in the harshest conditions.

To reduce operating sound levels, the XC13 uses a precision-balanced, direct-drive fan, which lets it run at a volume as quiet as 76 dB.
