Air Handler freezing at the air intake

So… the filter had been frosting over quite a bit. A decent amount of condensation was getting onto the filter and then freezing over. So I took the filter out and let it run and see what happens. Now the air return is starting to frost over. So here are my questions:1) Why is my handler dripping so much? Shouldn’t it be draining the water it condenses?2) I believe my return is sucking up cold air which is why it’s freezing the water. Now, I know that doesn’t quite make sense on the surface. But the house isn’t really getting any cooler. I did a paper test and the air is going the right direction. But why does it seem like the air being sucked back in is actually pretty chilly. What evil magic is this?Any help would be appreciated via /r/DIY
