If you are only planning to live in your home for a few years before selling it, you are probably going to be looking into what upgrades are going to end up paying off when you sell the home. There are several upgrades that are obvious including the kitchen and bathrooms. Upgrades that are often overlooked by many homeowners are HVAC upgrades. There is value in making smart HVAC upgrades that will make your home more appealing to potential buyers. Hal Mechanical is here to share what we consider to be HVAC upgrades that pay off and others that don’t.
Upgrading Insulation Helps HVAC Run Better & Saves on Energy Bills
The insulation in your home can have a dramatic influence on how well your HVAC system performs. If you are losing hot or cold air to poor insulation, you will see a big improvement when you increase the amount of insulation you have in your home. This can be an inexpensive upgrade that can yield up to 110% return on your investment. It will also appeal to buyers if it is done and one less thing they will have to deal with upon purchasing the home.
Energy Efficient Windows Aid in Winter Heat Loss
If you live in an older home that has never had the windows upgraded, you will absolutely see a good return on that investment when you choose to replace them. To reduce the amount of heat transfer as well as drafts that come with old windows, you will see a big difference on the overall comfort of your home.
Replacing Old Furnace with New Unit
A furnace usually lasts up to 15 years in your home before it starts to require costly, constant repair. However, it is important to think about the area that you live in. When you live in an area that has harsh winters, you definitely want a furnace that is going to perform. If you live in an area like Las Vegas, people may not be as concerned about the furnace as they are in the air conditioning system.
Installation of New Central Air Conditioner
The same thing can be said for the AC system in your home. Here in the Vegas area, it is incredibly important that you have a central AC system that is working flawlessly. A new, improved central AC system can give you a 10% increase in the overall value of your home. If the AC isn’t great, consider replacing it if you live here. You should never replace a furnace or an AC system that is less than 10 years old though. You just won’t see a big return on a perfectly working HVAC system.
