CONSUMER ALERT: HVAC Awareness for Home Buyers

Buying a new home can be an exciting time of life.  While it is likely that eventually the home will need to be inspected and mechanical equipment evaluated to finalize financing, the following items may indicate problems with the new home HVAC system.

Potential New Home HVAC Problems — Noises

An odd noise in any mechanical equipment is often an indicator of a problem.  With the HVAC system the odd noise might mean one of many different problems.  Some are easy repairs, while others may indicate a need to replace an entire part or even the entire system.  A rattling noise might be a loose screw that requires tightening.  Or it could indicate issues with the compressor or a bad motor.  As a buyer, you should insist the rattle or other odd noise be addressed by a professional HVAC technician before making a final decision.

Potential New Home HVAC Problems — Cycling

Units that cycle excessively or are constantly starting and stopping may just have a problem with the thermostat or it might also be low on coolant.  Regardless of the cause of cycling, it places additional stress on the air conditioning system and can lead to the need for repair or replacement.  The cause of cycling should be addressed by a professional before closing on the home.

Potential New Home HVAC Problems — Odor

When an AC system creates an unusual odor, either inside or outside the home, it is definitely a cause for concern.  Odors can be a simple dirty air filter, a clogged drain line or contamination of the evaporator or condenser. Odors can cause headaches and flare up allergies, making the environment very uncomfortable for anyone living or visiting there.  If the odor is musty, it could indicate mold growing in the ventilation system.  Mold is associated with several health issues for home occupants.  The cause of the odor should be diagnosed, documented and eliminated by a qualified professional.

Potential New Home HVAC Problems — Puddles

One of the byproducts of cooling the air is the condensation of water.  The water drips in a pan and drains by gravity or a pump.  Water puddles could indicate a plugged drain line or a failed pump.  Fortunately of the many things to look for, a water puddle is usually an easy fix, but should be addressed none the less before making that final offer on a property.

Hobaica comes out every 6 months to do an AC checkup. John was our technician this time and did a great, thorough job. He went above and beyond to make sure everything was running how it should be. They have always been great and hope to have John back the next time.

Ryan is by far the best Service Technician. He has been out several times and has done plumbing and AC repairs. Recommend Ryan and Hobaica for all of your home needs they do it all. Thanks Ryan!! Extremely impressed with Amer and Juan. They are thorough and gave me advice on taking better care of my unit by changing my filter more often, I did not know that. Asked about my carbon monoxide dector and I found out online it had been recalled, had Amer not mentioned the dector I would not have checked it out. They are very Iinformative about the services Hobaica offers. Can't say enough good about Hobaica, and Amer and Juan. I do recommend Hobaica to my friends.

John Miranda was wonderful. He wore a mask, as we do in our house, and wore shoe coverings when in the house. These may seem like small things but they demonstrate respect and professionalism. He gave our system a serious review and changes interior filters. I hope that the for our next seasonal service that Hobaica sends him out to us again.

I had Hobaica out for HVAC maintenance and duct cleaning. It was soon discovered my unit was limping along on its last leg and soon to bite the dust. Luckily it got me thru the summer. James came and helped us get a GREAT system that should keep us very comfortable in the future! Great service, very professional and courteous - all technicians who came out were also! You’ll spend a little bit of $ but as they say, you get what you pay for!!
