Why does my AC system freeze up?

Its almost that time of year when homeowners across the Colorado Springs area will be turning on their air conditioning systems for the first time this season. One of the questions I hear most from homeowners during the summer months is Why does my AC system freeze up?

This is one of the most common service requests that we receive during the summer months. And it is usually one of the easiest to correct. Your homes central air conditioning system will freeze up mainly due to two reasons; lack of airflow and/or a low refrigerant charge. Lack of airflow can be due to several reasons, but far and away the most common reason we see is simply a dirty filter (or filters) in your duct system. Most filters are located inside the homes furnace (or air handler if the home has no furnace). Or the filters may be installed in a return air filter rack or filter grilles located outside and/or away from the furnace. It is important to maintain clean filters in your HVAC system to avoid performance issues, for both heating and cooling. Plugged or dirty filters create too much of a pressure drop across the indoor AC coil, resulting in ice building up on the coil and therefor reduced or completely blocked airflow thru the homes registers. Blocked or covered air registers, dirty blower wheels in the furnace/air handler, or improperly sized equipment or ductwork can also result in freezing issues with your AC. Improper refrigerant levels can also result in the system freezing up. Too little of a refrigerant charge will cause low system pressures within the refrigerant circuit, resulting in icing of the refrigerant lines. This is common in older systems that have developed refrigerant leaks and are losing some of the refrigerant charge. If your system is leaking refrigerant and is more than ten years old, you may want to consider having a new system installed.

hvac home service agreements

hvac home service agreements give the homeowner the piece of mind of knowing that their home's heating and cooling equipment will be serviced and inspected on an annual basis. This is important for several reasons. By having your furnace and air conditioning systems serviced and inspected on a routine basis, not only will you insure your equipment is running at peak efficiency, but also it will prolong the life of the equipment by keeping the system clean and in peak operating condition. hvac home service agreements are a wise investment for your home. [caption id="attachment_14277" align="alignnone" width="300"]HVAC Company in Colorado Springs Discounts available[/caption] Another benefit of being a service plan member with an hvac home service agreement is that you'll receive discounts not only on the cost of the annual service, but on service call charges, repairs as well as no overtime charges for emergency services during off hours. Our service plan club members often save hundreds of dollars simply by being a member. Savings add up in annual services, repairs and even new equipment installations. Colorado Springs club members receive priority service, including for those dreaded after-hours emergency calls. By being a club member and having your hvac equipment serviced regularly, you will minimize the chances of equipment failure as well as prolonging the life of your equipment. The majority of heating and air conditioning repairs are the result of a lack of routine maintenance of the equipment. Furnaces and Ac units will become dirty after many hours of usage, and often this dirt will result in premature parts failure.

furnace replacement

Now that fall is upon us it's time for many Colorado Springs area homeowners to start thinking about having to fire up that old furnace and hope that it still works. The recent cooler weather has already resulted in homeowners calling us to schedule their annual furnace inspection and cleaning. Which is always a good idea. I mean, why wait until it's 15 degrees outside to discover your furnace is on the fritz? Now, for those of you who may be considering furnace replacement, you have many more options available to you today than in the past. From efficiency range to communicating furnaces with WiFi connected thermostats, multi-stage heating, etc, your choices for furnace replacement are many. So how do you choose? I suggest that you do a little research first. Compare furnaces for features that best benefit you. And then talk to your HVAC professional before making a final decision. Of course, budget may factor into your final choice for furnace replacement. At Basset Heating & AC, we offer affordable monthly payment plans through our financing programs that makes it easier to have that new furnace installed today! One furnace I'd like to talk about specifically (and one that I installed in my own home) is the two-stage furnace with an ECM (or variable speed high-efficiency blower motor).  An excellent choice for furnace replacement, the two-stage furnace heats in two stages of heating instead of one, like the old traditional furnaces. What this means is, if your furnace is rated at 100,000 btu's, instead of always heating your home at maximum btu output (even when you only need to warm the house a few degrees), a two-stage furnace initially will use only about 65% of it's maximum btu output. If the thermostat is not satisfied within a certain amount of time, then the furnace will automatically kick into the 2nd stage of heating to deliver the higher output necessary to heat your home on the colder days of the year. This furnace is perfect for Colorado's generally mild winter climate. The ECM (or variable speed motor) delivers high efficiency performance and balances the airflow in your home's heating system (and cooling, if you have central AC). Typically this type of motor will consume about 45-55% LESS electricity when operating than the standard fixed speed PSC motor that is found in most furnaces. It doesn't just turn "on" and "off" like the standard PSC motor. The ECM motor will slowly ramp up when coming on, and slowly ramp down when turning off. This alone can help eliminate that annoying "banging" noise within the ductwork that is usually caused by a quick, sudden change in static pressure within the ducts. ECM motors, though costing more, will pay for themselves, usually within just a few years, in energy savings from electric consumption alone. They are more dependable, last longer, and easily out-perform the standard fixed speed PSC motor. They will also make your home's central AC system operate more efficiently as well. And because they will run on a very low CFM (airflow) when the thermostat is set to "fan on", you will see far greater air circulation and filtration in your home, which will reduce or eliminate air stratification within the home. Combined with the two-stage heating, this type of furnace will provide much more comfortable temperatures from room to room.This is why this type of furnace is my choice for furnace replacement here in the Colorado Springs area.
