Ok, this is my first time on this site, so if I make a mistake, I am sorry. I think I am following the rules here. I am def. not asking for DIY info. That would be a joke. I have no clue about HVAC. I am basically looking for a professional's opinion on what the problem may be.
Our Goodman unit is freezing up at the base on the part that is connecting the unit to the pipe that connects the unit to the house. My husband's friend is a HVAC man by trade. The compressor went out last year and was replaced by a brand new compressor. The HVAC man (my husband's friend) has done sevaral things;
1. He has cleaned out the coils and filter very thouroughly.
2. He has checked the freon level and added what needed to be added.
3. He is coming this evening to look at the thermostat.
I guess what bothers me is that he is supposedly an HVAC professional, but can't really figure out what the problem is. Maybe he is doing an elimination process of some sort.
To summarize, this unit is freezing at the part that connects the actual unit to the pipe that connects to the house. When this happens, the unit keeps (for lack of better word) blowing. Although the air that it is blowing is just warm air, not cold at all. Not that I know anything about ac units, (which is why I am on here asking some of you fine men your opinion) but I was thinking for sure that it was dirty coils and/or filter - this just from what I have read about Goodman units. Also, the fact of us having dogs in the house led me to believe the above idea.
I am sorry this is so long. I sometimes say too much or make things more complicated than they are. I desperately hope that one of you great guys can give me some advice on what you think it may be. I will be ever so grateful.
