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!

Scott came by today to perform routine maintenance on our air conditioners. He discovered one of the capacitors to be failing & was able to replace it quickly & efficiently. Now I can get through the summer without worries. Thanks Scott!

Hello, just a little note to tell you how great our Technicians were today.Ivan and Troy showed up a little ahead of schedule, met with us, checked out the work areas and got right to work. And they did a fantastic job! I thought I was going to hear all kinds of banging and all kinds of noise but instead it was just a little bit of noise and the cool sound of Ivan whistling... reminded me of my Dad, he always whistled to, it was great.Troy was also quietly working outside.Upon completion of the work Troy and Ivan showed us their work and how the new thermostat worked.They did a great job with the installation, very professional work! I've seen a few air conditioning/furnace installations over the years when building homes with my dad and cousin...and these two technicians (Ivan and Troy) are obviously very good at what they do, and very good with the customer service experience they exhibited to us!!And personally I think they both definitely deserve a raise!!! And no, they didn't ask me to say this, LOL. It's obvious they're humble guys that would never ask for something like this, but they definitely deserve a raise...at minimum some fantastic kudos to some great Hobiaca Technicians!Kudos to Ivan and Troy for a job very well done!Thank you,Jack and Jackie Guzman11/11/2021
