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.

Scott Dale was johnny-on-the-spot (weekend service!) and diligent in attempting to find a freak leak from the A/C return duct inside the house. It occurred during the strong monsoonal activity in Phoenix during the month of July and he diagnosed that it was probably condensation on the return duct in the attic from humidity that then ran down the duct to the return register in the house. No problems found. Great work and very professional service from Scott!
