Common Air Conditioning Problems

Our experienced technicians can take on any AC issue they find in a Hamilton County home. Some of the more common problems we see and fix include:

  • Insufficient Cooling or Uneven Temperatures: If your AC is blowing warm air or not cooling your home evenly, possible reasons include a dirty filter, duct blockage, low refrigerant level, or overheated compressor.
  • Frequent Cycling On and Off: This is called short cycling, which can damage the compressor. It can be caused by a clogged filter, an improperly set thermostat, or an oversized air conditioner.
  • Airflow Issues and Poor Ventilation: A blower fan or a ductwork issue can restrict airflow and limit the amount of ventilation available for your AC to do its job. It also increases the risk of needing air conditioner repair in Cincinnati.
  • Strange Noises or Odors: Loud squealing sounds usually come from a worn belt, while grinding often originates from bad motor bearings. If your AC is noisier than normal, vibrating, or smells musty or like it’s burning, call for help right away.
  • High Energy Bills: A spike in your electric bill can mean your AC is strained and overworking. Our technicians will find the reason your air conditioner is struggling.

If you experience any of these issues, call Wingate for an expert diagnosis. We will provide a custom solution that fixes the problem at its source.

Questions About Air Conditioning Repair

How Much Does AC Repair Cost?

The cost of repair depends on the type, size, and scope of the problem. A small AC repair such as replacing a capacitor, unclogging a drain line, or fixing a blower motor costs less than repairing a refrigerant line or replacing a compressor. How long a repair takes is also a factor, as you’ll also pay for labor.

How Many Hours Does It Take to Fix an AC Unit?

Small repairs may take just a few hours. If resolving an issue requires just unclogging a drain line or cleaning debris, it may take under an hour. But a repair that involves disassembling components or waiting for parts to arrive can take days or weeks.

Should I Repair My AC or Replace It?

If your AC is just a few years old and needs its first repair, fixing it can add years to its life. A unit that’s 10 to 15 years old can be repaired. However, replacement may be suggested if a repair costs more than half the price of a new unit, you’ve had several repairs recently, or your energy bills are going up.

Importance of Regular AC System Maintenance

We strongly believe in helping you avoid or reduce the need for air conditioning repair in Cincinnati. Preventative maintenance helps your AC run more efficiently, avoids major repairs, and can help your HVAC equipment last longer. Therefore, it results in long-term savings. Some of the most effective types of maintenance include:

  • Scheduled Tune-Ups and Inspections: A spring tune-up and inspection ensure your AC is ready for summer and can resolve issues that increase wear and the risk of a breakdown. The process includes checking connections, lubricating moving parts, and testing refrigerant levels (and providing a recharge if necessary).
  • Air Filter Replacement and Cleaning: A fresh air filter captures dust and small particles. It allows optimal airflow so your AC can work at maximum cooling capacity. Otherwise, frozen coils, jammed motors, and AC breakdowns can occur.
  • Coil and Condenser Cleaning: Cleaning the condenser coil ensures heat can be released outside and the AC can cool your home efficiently. Clearing debris from inside and around the condenser unit also helps avoid problems.

Wingate offers preventative maintenance programs that include complete tune-ups by certified technicians. Our monthly Wingate Home Protection Plan includes two seasonal HVAC system checkups, priority service, a 2-year parts and labor warranty, and a discount on repairs. We also waive overtime costs (including weekends and holidays) for members.

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.
