New technology is coming out every year. But which upgrades are actually worth the cost? There are several HVAC upgrades you can give your Rome, Georgia, home that will increase its value, making them worth the investment. Keep reading to learn about three HVAC upgrades you should consider installing, especially if you’re looking to sell your home in the near future.
Consider upgrading your thermostat to a programmable or smart model. While these thermostats cost a little more upfront, they quickly pay for themselves through lower energy bills. Additionally, these thermostats increase your home’s overall comfort. They automatically adjust to decrease your home’s temperature before you get ready for bed and can help you save on heating and cooling costs while you’re away from home. Potential buyers will appreciate the energy savings and increased comfort that come with one of these.
Insulation is connected to your HVAC system in that it contributes to its overall efficiency. If your home has poor insulation, your HVAC system will work harder to compensate for the air loss to reach your home’s desired temperature. Conversely, you can increase energy efficiency with new insulation. Additionally, if you sell your home within a year of redoing the insulation, you can receive more than a 100-percent return on that investment.
A typical HVAC system will last between 15 and 20 years. If your system is older than 15 years, consider getting it replaced before selling the house. While the system may not increase the monetary value to your home, potential buyers may not want to buy your home if they know they’ll have to pay for a new HVAC system during the first few years. Therefore, replacing an older system is a good selling tactic.
