How To Clean Out A Frozen Condensing Unit

If you find that your condensing unit is frozen, that’s a pretty common occurrence. A frozen condensing unit can also cause a lot of different problems with your system. Not only does it affect the efficiency of your cooling process, but it can also lead to a variety of other problems with your heating and air conditioning system. You should always attempt to clear out the system from any moisture before attempting to start it up again. There are a few different ways that this can be done. You can use a dehumidifier, or you can simply run the unit down with water. Either method is perfectly acceptable, and it will have the same result as cleaning out the system.

A dehumidifier is one of the most effective ways to clear out the moisture in your condensing unit. The best way to use a dehumidifier is to run it on the highest setting. This will allow the air to circulate around the unit and reduce the amount of moisture that it’s holding. Once the unit is completely dried out, run it through a reverse cycle, where you let the unit get fully dry and then run it through the system again. This will allow any moisture that was still in the system to be sucked out. You should then be able to run the unit again without having to worry about any issues.

If your condensing unit is frozen, you might want to consider using water to get rid of it. This will certainly have the same effect as using a dehumidifier, but will also help clear out any other issues that are inside the system. Make sure that you are careful when removing the unit from the system. Make sure that there aren’t any leaks that might allow water to get into the system and cause more damage.
