Question
Hello,
     Why does my ac keep freezing up ? I shut it off for a while, the ice clears it will work then freeze up again?

Answer
Drew,
      The evaporator coil freezing up most commonly is caused by 2 things . Restricted air flow caused by a dirty evaporator coil or dirty filter . Low refrigerant level also can cause the coil to ice . Definitely have someone look at your unit as it can lead to greater problems with system. http://www.airzero.com
