# Frozen evaporator coils

An air conditioner or heat pump operates by circulating refrigerant through an evaporator coil. When moisture in the air condenses on these coils, it can freeze, blocking airflow and heat transfer. This leads to inefficient operations or a completely frozen and unusable system. Issues causing evaporator freeze-ups include low refrigerant levels, blocked air filters restricting airflow, incorrect thermostat settings, or evaporator coils coated with debris. A service technician can evacuate the system, perform a leak check and refill refrigerant at the proper level. They also clean evaporator coils, check condensate drainage, and inspect for other problems allowing for proper airflow once more. Addressing the root cause prevents repeated freezing issues.
