Frozen heat pump

My heat pump freezes upwhen it gets cold. I can turn on the A/C and it will thaw out. It does this every single morning when i turn it on.

Mine froze up awhile back, fortunately it was summer.
It should go through a defrost cycle, but you are probably low on freon. That was my problem. Restricted air flow is another possible. Make sure filter is clean/new.
I'm not an expert, but only slightly experienced.
It probably needs serviced.

Get a hvac guy to look at it . Check out the defrost control on your unit.Dont think its freon here. When you are on AC in the summer your indoor coil will ice up first if you are low on freon ED
