Will My AC Freeze If I Lower the Thermostat Too Far?

Monday, August 23rd, 2021

ice-on-an-acYou may have heard about an air conditioner’s indoor coil freezing over because someone lowered the thermostat too far. This may sound a bit fanciful: after all, the lowest setting on most thermostats is 60°F, which is definitely far above freezing.
