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.

We’ve Pulled Away From the Competition

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.

The team was incredibly nice and friendly. I appreciate that they are so timely and would call/text ahead of time to let you know exactly who and when they are coming. I am clueless on HVACs but the team would patiently explain everything they could to me and I greatly appreciated it. Robby explained in great detail all the parts of the furnace and worked hard to diagnose the issue/fix it. Brett gave me a variety of options for the replacement of my HVAC system and I like how thorough he was in trying to address my needs and lifestyle. The team was also incredibly quick and replaced my 30 year old furnace and AC for me all in a day. Very professional, hardworking and easy to work with. I am really happy with my experience.I worked with Robby, Brett, Justin & Aaron

Wonderful experience with Wingate and Aaron Faughn, one of their project managers. While completing a bathroom reno for a customer, we were stalled by the fact we needed a multi shutoff valve replacement. Aaron responded immediately and had a tech out the same day; the work was completed two days later putting us right back on schedule. In addition, from one small business to another, all parties handled themselves expertly, and the repair was extremely cost effective. Will be using Wingate in the future and recommending them to friends!

Following a storm that impacted neighbors we thought it best to have our roof inspected and contacted Wingate. Matt Alexander came to our home and did find damage. We contacted our insurance company who confirmed the damage that Matt found. Matt was very helpful throughout the entire process with the insurance company. Once we had the OK from the insurance company Matt helped us through the process of selecting materials and assisted with interaction of the scheduling through Wingate. Emily from Wingate along with Matt are were great communicators. Both are responsive to our calls and give us answers to questions. On the day prior to the scheduled install, Matt set up protective netting around the house. On the day of install additional ground covering around the house was installed by the crew. Matt was on-site throughout the day during the install and interacted with the crew. After install, prior to the crew leaving, Matt reviewed the project, removed the protective netting he installed and the hard working install crew cleaned up the yard and removed their ground covering. The next day, Matt came back to pick up some left over materials, checked out the install from the ground and the roof top. Emily sent us the warranty information and took care of filing the paperwork with our insurance company. Our thanks to everyone involved.

Wingate was incredible to work with. Replaced the entire roof on our house and detached garage due to wind damage. Excellent communication from start to finish. Did what they said they were going to do when they said they were going to do it. Followed up after the work was completed to make sure all was well. Would not hesitate to refer Wingate to anyone!

Robbie came out and got my system working amazingly. He explained everything to me in a way that I could understand, he offered maintenance services (without being pushy) and let me decide on which plan worked best for me. Excellent experience; highly recommend.
