The idea is to insulate to keep air and it's moisture content away from the metal pipes. A double faced insulation with foil on the pipe side is very good. I wrapped mine with r-13 single faced ceiling joist rolls and don't expect to have any condensate problems.

If you do not have central heat ( i.e. a furnace), then you need to have a space heater of some kind. If you did not have a chimney, you could get a kerosene stove or an electric heater.

If you do not have storm windows. you can stretch plastic over the outside.

Why do central A C line freeze?

The central AC line freeze due to evaporator coil. Because, This is the part of air condition system which transfers the inside to outside of the home. the two reason behind it it can freeze due to restricted air flow and lack of sufficient refrigerant. the result is that the air conditioner's evaporator coil cannot operate to properly dissipate heat, and in effect "overcools" itself. The result of this super-cooling is condensation and eventually ice from that condensation as it cools below the freezing point
