Hello, I need the full brand name and model number of the AC and a description of it, is it a window unit? or a central system.

.

Regarding freezing, if the air filter is dirty the AC will freeze its cooling coil, it will also freeze if you run the AC at night when its cooler that 72F outside.

.
