Up Your Asking Price

Remodeled bathrooms or new kitchen cabinets are not negative renovations but upgrading your heating and cooling system could greatly increase the value of your home. Potential homeowners may not immediately notice a new HVAC system, but they will most definitely spot an old or broken system.

“If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.”

Does your home need an updated or replaced HVAC system? The best way to determine if a new system is worth the price is to first determine if it is needed. As long as your HVAC system isn’t super outdated and is in a healthy state, a replacement really isn’t necessary.

Take your climate into consideration. If your location does not reach very low temperatures, upgrading your furnace will most likely not add value. Replace or Repair?

When HVAC systems are over fifteen years old, they will most likely require new ductwork. Unfortunately, if you have to replace all the ductwork in your home, you may never recoup that expense. If your unit is more than twenty years old, repairs may not be effective in gaining appeal and grabbing the buyer’s attention. Although an entire HVAC system replacement cost may be higher, it will likely be easier to sell your home with a new HVAC system.

Choose the Right Size Heating and Cooling Unit

It is important to install a heating and cooling unit that is going to be able to accommodate the home’s square footage.

An HVAC system that is too small will struggle to keep up and may not be able to maintain comfortable temperatures. If your unit is too large, you’ll be wasting money on time and energy that could be used elsewhere.

Professional Installation

Schedule a check-up to have your HVAC system repair costs evaluated. Educate yourself on the cost of the new HVAC system you would need for your home and the installation.

Hire a professional to take on the installation of a new HVAC system. Many warranties are contingent on professional installation and may become void upon self-installation.
