Why Is My System Freezing Up?
There are several factors that can cause system freezing. Most need to be corrected by a Bordelon's Air Conditioning & Heating technician. We service all brands and give honest and fair services! 24/7 call 318-308-9978
1) Dirty filter
After replacing or cleaning the filter, you can speed up the thawing process by turning the system off and turning on the fan. If you have a heat pump system, you can try turning the system to heating mode until the ice has melted. After the ice has melted, switch the system settings back to normal. If the system refreezes, contact Bordelon's to correct the problem.
2) Low refrigerant
In some cases, freezing is caused by a leak in the refrigerant lines. Weak solder joints, friction from piping rubbing or vibrating against an object, open valves or loose fittings are all factors that can cause leaks. When determining whether to have the system repaired or replaced, the age of the system and the nature and location of the leak are important considerations. Call Bordelon's Air Conditioning & Heating
3) Dirty evaporator coil
Over time, the evaporator coil will become dirty. When this happens, you will begin to lose airflow, slowly enough that you probably would not realize it until it freezes up or cooling performance is compromised. At this point, you will need Bordelon's Air Conditioning & Heating to correct the problem.
4) Defective blower motor or relay
A blower motor not running at the proper speed or not running at all is another factor that can cause freezing. Motor operation may be intermittent, starting at full speed and slowing down after it heats up. Or, a relay could cause it to start one time and not the next. In either case, you will need Bordelon's Air Conditioning & Heating to correct the problem.

HVAC Preventative Maintenance
Many people tend to wonder whether HVAC preventative maintenance is worth the time and money. Just like a motor vehicle needs regular tune-ups to operate at its best level of performance, so does a Air Conditioning and Heating system. While preventive maintenance benefits the system directly, having this service performed by trained professionals brings with it benefits to you as the home or business owner as well.
Air Duct Cleaning
The air ducts in your home provide a very important function. They circulate the air from your heating and cooling system into and out of each room, which allows for consistent interior comfort regardless of the season.
In fact, all of the air in your home circulates through the ducts multiple times a day. The air cycling through your ducts is the same air that completely fills your living environment…and it is the same air that you and your family breathe. As such, you want this air to be as clean as possible.
We take great pride in our air duct cleaning!
There are many benefits to having your air ducts professionally cleaned, the top five of which are listed below:
Creates a Cleaner Living Environment
Having your air ducts professionally cleaned reduces the dust that would otherwise circulate throughout your living space, landing on your furniture, your bedding, your flooring…just about everywhere. Fortunately, a thorough air duct cleaning reduces the amount of interior cleaning and dusting necessary to maintain a hygienic home.
Reduces Allergens and Irritants
In addition to dust, air ducts frequently contain harmful contaminants and micro-organisms. These include pet dander, bacteria, pollen, mildew, mold spores, and similar toxins. People who suffer from allergies, asthma, and other respiratory problems are particularly sensitive to these airborne particles. A periodic air duct cleaning promotes healthier living…otherwise the dirty air in your home just keeps re-circulating over and over.
Helps Everyone Breathe Easier
Even if no one in your household suffers from chronic allergies or respiratory problems, cleaner air makes it easier for everyone to breathe. Even among the most healthy, dust and pollutants entering the nose and lungs can trigger sneezing and coughing, as well as sinus and bronchial congestion. Air duct cleaning creates a more comfortable environment and promotes well-being. Given the choice between clean air and dirty air, which would you rather breathe.
Removes Unpleasant Smells and Odors
Pets, household cleaning agents, paint fumes, mold, tobacco use and even food preparation all contribute to stale smells in the air ducts. Every time the furnace or air conditioner is running, these odors will repeatedly flow through the house. Even an accumulation of dust and dirt over the years can lead to a musty scent coming from the ductwork. A detailed cleaning of the air ducts removes all odor trapping particles, resulting in a fresher smelling home.
Improves Air Flow Efficiency
Ductwork and registers that have a heavy build-up of dust and grime can restrict the flow of air from the furnace and air conditioner. This means your system will have to work harder to heat or cool your home, resulting in a decreased level of efficiency. Conversely, a clean system will operate at peak efficiency and provide the most cost-effective performance for your energy dollar.
New air ducts are a great compliment to a new ac system. Replacement ducts can also improve the performance of older ac units. Bordelon's Air Conditioning and Heating can design and install new metal or flexible ductwork for your home or business in a professional and timely manner. The result? Rooms that cool more quickly and deliver better quality air. If your building a CUSTOM Home, call us TODAY! We take great pride in our duct work!
