How HVAC Upgrades Can Increase Home Value, Perry, Ohio

Heating and cooling systems are subject to a lot of wear and tear after years of use. Dust and bacteria build up inside equipment and ductwork, and units lose efficiency as they age. For this reason, if you’re selling your home, have an HVAC contractor upgrade your system to increase your home value and make it more appealing to prospective buyers.

Why It Matters

Many home upgrades, such as kitchen remodels or home additions, are considered luxuries to homebuyers. Alternatively, the heating and cooling system is typically seen a basic necessity. Young homebuyers are environmentally savvy and are likely to pass on houses without Energy Star-rated appliances, windows, and doors.

heating and coolingMany serious homebuyers also have aspects of a home, including the HVAC unit, inspected before closing. An old or broken system could cost you the sale, so if your heating and cooling system is 12 years old or older, it’s probably time to replace it with a more energy-efficient model. Doing so can lower utility costs for you and future homeowners by an estimated 30% each year.

How to Upgrade Your Unit

You’ll get the most return on your investment if you install a new HVAC unit with a high Energy Star rating and a Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) value of at least 15. The higher a SEER is, the more energy and utility costs you’ll save. Consult an HVAC contractor to make sure your home is fitted with the right-sized unit, and remember that you may need to get a larger one if you’ve done additional renovations, such as adding a room.
