AC Maintenance in CincinnatiSchedule Your AC Tune-Up and Inspection with Wingate Heating, Air, Plumbing & Roofing

Regular AC maintenance ensures your air conditioning system works when you need it. It can also save on repairs, energy costs, and early replacement. At Wingate Heating, Air, Plumbing & Roofing, we’ve been maintaining AC systems in the Greater Cincinnati area since 1968. We have highly trained, NATE-certified technicians who can provide any type of service for your cooling equipment. A thorough air conditioner tune-up ensures your comfort and that your air conditioner handles peak demand all season.

The Importance of Air Conditioning Maintenance

Ignoring your air conditioning system until something goes wrong will cost you more in the long run. Therefore, we highly recommend investing in a maintenance plan. Hiring a professional for annual service can:

  • Extend Your AC Unit’s Lifespan: New air conditioners are expensive. With regular maintenance, you can add years to the life of your system. If it’s cleaned and tuned, your air conditioning can last 15 years or more.
  • Avoid Costly Breakdowns and Repairs: A small problem can strain major AC components, eventually leading to costly repairs and emergency fees. Preventative maintenance reduces the risk of a breakdown during the cooling season. We recommend it in the spring so any issues are addressed before your AC is in full gear.
  • Improve Energy Efficiency: A loose belt, worn fan motor, clogged filter, dirty condenser, or low refrigerant can cause your air conditioner to consume more energy. Even a small issue can cause your energy bill to spike. An AC tune-up can pay for itself in reduced utility bills alone.
  • Improved AC Performance: Without maintenance, your AC can become ineffective at providing cool air. A tune-up can avoid having one room too cold and another too hot. Your family will be more comfortable overall.
  • Improved Indoor Air Quality: Dust, dirt, pollen, and other particulates and pollutants can clog air filters, collect in AC components and ducts, and circulate in your home. Maintenance prevents these issues and can help relieve allergies and eliminate dust, excess moisture, and odors.
  • Keep the Manufacturer’s Warranty Valid: If the manufacturer requires maintenance, skipping a tune-up can void your air conditioning warranty. You’ll then have to pay for costly repairs if the issue could have been prevented.


Professional AC Maintenance in Cincinnati

Our AC Maintenance Services

During an annual maintenance visit, our technicians perform a comprehensive AC tune-up. They begin by inspecting the system for signs of wear or damage. Grime on the evaporator coil will be cleaned and any airflow blockages will be cleared. Our team uses the latest equipment to measure airflow, temperature control, and electrical performance. They can address any issues on the spot, such as refilling refrigerant, tightening an electrical connection, or lubricating a motor.

Our technicians also check the outdoor unit and clear any dirt or debris inside it or on the coil fins. After opening the unit, they inspect the fan and condenser coil and look for any mechanical or electrical issues. The unit will be cleaned using professional methods. In addition, we’ll verify proper clearance around the unit and that it is level. Our team follows a detailed checklist to ensure these tasks and more are completed and all your AC components are properly inspected, tested, and (if necessary) adjusted or repaired.

Frequently Asked Questions

How Can I Tell My AC Requires Service?

Call for help if your AC is blowing warm air. Weak airflow from the vents, temperature fluctuations from one room to another, and unusual noises such as screeching, squealing, grinding, hissing, or rattling are also reasons to call a contractor. An AC tune-up will help a technician find the cause and perform any necessary repairs.

How Often Should I Schedule Air Conditioning Maintenance?

We recommend professional AC maintenance at least once a year. Spring is the best time to have your system checked. But we can service your AC more often if it has known issues or you use it more frequently. We’ll even check it in the fall when it’s time for heater maintenance.

Is AC Maintenance the Same Thing As AC Service?

Air conditioning maintenance entails taking preventative measures to improve the unit’s performance, increase efficiency, and extend its lifespan. While AC service can be done in the same visit, it refers to repairs such as replacing blower fans, sealing leaks, and recharging the refrigerant.

Can I Perform Air Conditioning Maintenance?

You should clean or change the air filter regularly, remove debris from the outdoor unit, and keep vents and registers open and clean. Also, check and clean the evaporator coil and condensate drain. Shading the outdoor compressor protects it from excess heat that can cause it to run inefficiently or break down. Your HVAC contractor will handle more advanced tasks.

We’ve Pulled Away From the Competition

Our roof had some severe wind damage and needed a total replacement. After a brief battle with insurance, Lonny from Wingate got us a brand new roof for the price of our deductible. He was extremely thorough throughout the entire process. He was here multiple times during the installation to make sure everything was being done correctly. He also did a thorough inspection upon completion and addressed any and all concerns we had. This is not a scam. This is not one of those too-good-to-be true situations. They will give you a free inspection, and if there’s no damage, there is absolutely no hard sell. Call Wingate and ask for Lonny. You’ll be in great hands.

My wife and I could not be happier with the folks at Wingate! Excellent communication and wonderful end result. We’ll be considering them for much more than a roof replacement moving forward! Lonny was such a professional making sure we understood the whole process and timeline of getting our roof replaced. If you’re in Harrison and see any of the amount of wind we do, give Lonny a call and witness a level of service you don’t see too often anymore. Thanks for the great work!

100% satisfied customer here. From the first phone call to the follow up call. Aaron was right on time, showed us our options for a new furnace, explained in detail the process and was very professional while doing so. Isaac was our service technician. I could write it but everything was exactly the same as my above comments. Thanks Wingate!!! You made a bad day alot better.

What was anticipated to be a simple AC repair turned out to be a bit more of an unexpected safety issue with my furnace. Thanks to the quick scheduling and response from Aaron and the Wingate team I was able to replace my HVAC system in days. From the inspection to the installation techs, top notch. Highly recommend.

We had a last minute AC issue on the hottest day of the year. We had Wingate out to get a second opinion on what we were told was a broken AC unit. Our technician, Ty, quickly identified that was a lose wire that was overlooked by the first company. He quickly fixed the problem.He also did a comprehensive inspection of our furnace and found a separate issue that we appreciated.Ty was fantastic and we hope to work with Wingate again in the future.

Wingate Mechanical has never failed me. They are my first call every time I have an issue. The start of February 2024, cold weather, our furnace quit working around 9pm at night. We have a family of six including young children. A phone call was made, and Wingate had a technician out at our house within an hour. Ty H. arrived and diagnosed the problem and wow our furnace was no good. He made a couple calls and was able to get Project Manager Aaron Faughn out to my house the next day to discuss options. Aaron listened to our needs and was knowledgeable and explained the process clearly. He had an install team at the house the next day to get new furnace installed and working so we had heat. Seth N. and Justin E. did a fantastic job installing the furnace and getting our heat back working. They explained everything very well. I am always very pleased with Wingate Mechanical, and they are always my first call!!!

Representative Aaron Faughn stopped by my house to do an assessment on the water heater. We had noticed several problematic areas within the space of the heater and most notably water leaking from underneath which showed the end of lifespan for this device . Upon completion of inspection he educated myself on the hazards of not changing out the water heater in a timely manner as well as the monetary costs that could be incurred. We agreed to change it out and have another Wingate technician install the new device. The tech was very professional during the entire install process and educated me as well as to what some of the items on the water heater had written on it. I am very pleased in the services I received from Wingate. Highly recommend for anyone that needs assistant on what they offer within the home realm.
