Yes, ice can form on your air conditioning system even in the dead of summer in New York.
Worse yet, it can bring your system to a halt or fill your home with unwanted hot air until you turn it off.
There are several possible causes: a dirty air filter or dirty coils, a malfunctioning fan, wiring problems, or low refrigerant level, often due to a leak. You might find ice on the outside hose. Or you may hear chunks of ice falling or see an unusual amount of water in the drip pan due to ice melting.
These conditions can cause the temperature n the condenser evaporator to fall below freezing, which leads to ice.
Turn off the AC at once to prevent further damage and call a professional to solve the problem and restore your air conditioning.
