We want to start off by saying that customers should never assume that their air conditioner is using ice to cool their home. Ice is not a part of the cooling process, and it’s really inefficient. It takes a whole lot of energy and water to create ice, and even then, ice is only good at cooling a small object or space; it’s never going to efficiently cool an entire home like an air conditioner is supposed to do.
So, with this in mind, if there’s ice growing on the coil of an AC, this signals the need for repair. Any customers, readers, or just other homeowners out there who stumble on this blog, keep reading to learn about how ice growing on an AC can be a problem.
