Should You Replace the HVAC System Before Selling Your Home

There are many benefits to upgrading your HVAC system, and it could prove to be an excellent investment on the home seller’s end. 

Here is everything you need to know about replacing your HVAC system and if it will help you turn a profit when you sell your house.

Homebuyers think about many factors beyond selling price when deciding to purchase a home.

The condition of a home’s heating and cooling system generally ranks among their top concerns.

When deciding whether to upgrade your HVAC system before selling your home, consider the system’s age and operating costs reflected on your utility bills.

That way, you can make an informed decision about whether to upgrade your old heating and cooling system.

Your HVAC System’s Age

If your HVAC system is close to or older than ten years, your home could benefit from a system upgrade.

Air conditioning units and heat pumps don’t last forever.

As they age, these systems can experience breakdowns that require repairs.

The more frequently these repairs occur, the more they contribute to a decrease in operating efficiency.

Replacing a heating and cooling system is a substantial investment.

However, making this investment means that you can factor the benefit of having a new HVAC system installed into your home’s sale price.

As a result, you can ask for more while advertising that you’ve installed a new HVAC system.

HVAC System Operating Costs

Before purchasing a home, homebuyers often want to know what the current owner spends on utility costs.

If your utility bills reflect significant energy expenses, your home’s HVAC system may not be operating efficiently.

An older heating and cooling system can impact the overall operating cost. But newer systems that aren’t properly maintained can also have the same effect.

If two to three years have passed since you had your current HVAC system installed and you’ve noticed increases in your utility bills over time, contact a professional for a checkup.

If you have a newer heating and cooling system, you may only need to repair or replace a part.

When deciding about replacing your HVAC when selling your home, don’t underestimate the value of comfort.

All other things being equal, a new system could help you sell faster and more easily.
