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

Wingate is a very customer service driven company. My husband and I are beyond satisfied with our decision to have Wingate install our new HVAC system 18 months ago and the service we have had since the system was installed. Thank you Wingate.

Wingate Roofing is A+ from start to finish they explained everything is easy to understand language and made sure i was happy with each piece. Scheduling was a breeze and installation was great - all finished in one day. They cleaned up very well, with a second trip out to ensure that all the nails and debris were picked up. All things considered, I wouldn't trust any other company to do my roof.

From Bruce & Patty Hoffbauer:Chris Wingate & his employees did an outstanding job installing my new HVAC system. They were very thorough with their inspection of the system and they took their time explaining every option. Not only did they do a professional job installing the system, they had many follow up discussions to ensure we were completely satisfied. They left my house as clean as they found it and they were completely finished in one day. I would highly recommend Chris Wingate & his team if you have any Heating or Cooling issues. The Wingate company also installed an HVAC systems in my son’s house recently. A shout out to the Service Technicians Aaron Wingate & Alex Miller, the Installers Justin & Aiden, & Sales Manager Aaron Faughn. I even received a text message from the owner Chris Wingate with his personal cell number if I had any questions. A great customer friendly business.
