PLEASE PLEASE HELP! KIDS HAVE ASTHMA SO THEY ARE MISEAREABLE! THNKS IN ADVANCE!

Answer
There are a few things that can cause a unit to freeze up.  One common problem is air flow.  Common causes for poor air flow are dirty filters and a fan motor that is not working properly.  The other common issue is the system is low on refrigerant. These are not the only things, but the more common ones.  You can start by checking the filter and making sure there is nothing blocking air flow to or from the unit.
