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!

Simon Peterson was my service technician. Very impressive young man. He explained everything first, did the work and gave me suggestions of what I could do in the future to extend the life of my unit. No high pressure, no bs. I highly recommend Hobaica and Simon for A/C repairs.

Loved the Hobaica service! Steven A. was the technician and I can't say enough great things about him. Called when he was on the way to my house (on-time as promised), very friendly, polite and explained exactly what happened and what he was doing to fix it. Super customer service!! HIGHLY RECOMMEND this family owned, local business.

Gave clear and concise information about my AC problems; gave solutions at various costs & warranties, and was professional and courteous throughout the exchange. I didn’t feel pressured and I feel very confident as a long-time customer.

I had a leaky faucet and, because our regular plumber was out of town, called Hobaica because they have serviced our AC/heating units for years and I knew I could trust them to do plumbing work, too. Ryan Waters came over in just a couple of hours and quickly diagnosed and fixed the problem. I would recommend him to anybody who needs an honest and efficient plumber.
