Surprised when systems are relatively new and 'checked-out' by HobaicaChallenge to get service when HOA precludes service vehicles on site after customary business hours … delays carried over for two days

Great Service




Thomas called us before coming by to confirm his visit and was very prompt and courteous. He explained everything he was doing and provided both verbal and written feedback on our air conditioner. Our questions were answered very professionally.

ALWAYS Great Service!




As usual, Tom was right on time for my semi-annual maintenance checkup this morning. This time he provided a self-recorded video he made during his inspection of my 7+ year old unit, zooming in on some items showing evidence of possibly or likely needing service, either right away or soon, or warranting another look at my next scheduled maintenance. He also pointed out items which warranted service or further checking sooner, which I authorized for him to perform today. Tom is well-trained and articulate in explaining in language I could understand about why certain services are better performed sooner vs later. All in all, I'm very pleased I chose Hobaica.

Performed tcc mainatance for both ceiling mount electric strip heat units and straight cooling units on roof. Cycled heating and checked Airflow, temp splits, drain lines, amp draws, filters, motors and operatoions. Systems are operating normally at this time however due to age of near 20, very inefficient and unreliable units and type of #r22 refrigerant used by both I would suggest replacing them at this time.
