A way older air conditioner

Now that the weather is getting warmer out we have to start thinking about our HVAC systems. The people I was with and I need to make sure that our unit will run efficiently and reliable throughout the Springtime and summertime temperatures, however I can remember last Springtime time when I was turning on our air conditioner equipment it was not coming on at all, and some self-explanatory checks that I did to ensure that our air conditioning system was actually not finally working at all was that I made sure that the temperature control was set to cool, and it was. I also tried replacing the batteries in our temperature control and I even took care of the circuit breaker box, and after doing all of these easy equipment checks, I could not figure out why our HVAC unit was not finally working. Instead of trying to repair the issue myself and tinkering with our air conditioner plan and making more of a problem, I decided to call our heating cooling serviceman. It turns out that there was ice on our air conditioner condenser unit, but because our air conditioner equipment is older it was not able to handle the humidity and heat as it once could.  My heating and cooling serviceman turned the air conditioner plan off all together and put the fan on, and he did this by controlling the HVAC through the temperature control. My HVAC serviceman also told me that I should wait a few hours so the equipment could start its defrost mode. He said within the next 3 hours once it’s defrosted try turning it back on to see if it will job again. And it did! I was able to have cool air running through our air registers once again!
