It Pays to be a Smart Consumer!

When it comes to HVAC terms and knowledge, there’s a lot of information in cyberspace and on TV and radio. It’s hard to know what terms matter most.  After all, not every Arizona homeowner wants to become a certified comfort specialist.  Hobaica Services understands this and suggests every home owner learn just three HVAC terms to help get the best equipment, service, and savings.

SEER.

SEER stands for Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio. The SEER rating measures the efficiency of air conditioners based the energy (electricity) they consume vs. the quantity of cool air they produce. Units with a high SEER rating get more “miles per gallon” than their lower-rated counterparts, a low SEER is considered a rating of 12 or under. High efficiency units are rated from 13 to 19.5 SEER. Higher SEER Ratings translate into saving energy and money!

MERV

MERV stands for Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value. MERV measures the effectiveness of air filters. The higher the rating, the more airborne particles are trapped. The U.S. Department of Energy recommends using a filter with a MERV 13 rating. But wait! Don’t run out for a high MERV filter without consulting one of our Qualified Comfort Specialists.  Higher MERV filters are more restrictive, which could lead to inhibited airflow possibly causing system malfunctions or damage.

NATE

NATE stands for North American Technician Excellence. NATE is a national non-profit organization that tests and certifies technicians in the HVAC industry. The work of NATE certified technicians meets national standards and ensures you won’t play a guessing game when selecting a contractor. NATE certified technicians deliver quality installation and expert service. Hobaica Services is a NATE Quality Circle Contractor.

So remember SEER, MERV, and NATE. Knowing these simple terms can help you make an informed decision on your next purchase or when selecting an HVAC contractor. Call Hobaica Services for further information. We’ll be happy to answer your questions!

We've been Hobaica heat pump and maintenance customers since 1997. Just had a semiannual maintenance visit from Amer on our very new Lennox system installed last Fall. Amer was very thorough and a pleasure to work with. Excellent service, as usual, from Hobaica.Another maintenance today (3/21) done by Scott and Travis. Again, very thorough inspection. And pleasant to work with.

Wonderful experience! He came on one day and fixed what he could and then scheduled us the next day to repair the problem! He was very friendly and outgoing!

Scott Dale was very professional and knowledgeable during an inspection of my HVAC system. I was very comfortable during his visit and he shared helpful information and pictures and patiently answered all of my questions. I highly recommend Scott and appreciate having a technician of his caliber representing Hobaica.
