Yes, your air conditioner is supposed to cool your home down. However, you should never see ice on your air conditioner as it attempts to do so.

Even if your AC is cooling your home successfully, you cannot afford to ignore any odd sounds that it may be making. Whistling sounds may mean that you have an air leak, while a gurgling may indicate a refrigerant leak. You may also find that your system is grinding, which could be due to damaged fan components or other vital parts of the system. A trained professional should inspect and resolve any such problems as soon as possible.
