If your air conditioner is louder than usual, you do need to have it checked. But noisy air conditioners can usually be repaired if you call for service. It could just be something simple like the motor or a misaligned fan blade.
Ice on the coils is a sign that there's a refrigerant leak either on the AC's inside air handler or outdoor condenser. Both have coils that can freeze. Your AC won't work until the leak is fixed.
There could be a number of problems going on with your heating equipment. You may have an air duct leak or blockage. The heating equipment may have been installed wrong. Your thermostat may not be installed in the right location, or the problem could be something else. Call our heating contractors to troubleshoot the problem.
A split system air conditioner contains an air handler and coil, or a furnace and coil, with an outdoor condenser unit. This is the most common residential HVAC system. A packaged air conditioning system has all these components contained in one package rather than an indoor and outdoor unit. Packaged air conditioners are more often used in commercial settings or for multi-family complexes.
If your heating and air conditioning equipment is loaded with R-22 refrigerant, we recommend that you replace both units. Otherwise, you can replace just one unit without the other but keep in mind that the energy efficiency in totality will suffer.
