Are you planning on selling your home in 2020 and are searching for ways to add equity to it? If so, one of the best things you can do to add equity to your house is to replace your HVAC unit.
Although this is by far one of the best decisions that any homeowner can make, the reality is that few people like to invest in a new HVAC system unless they are told by an HVAC professional that it should be replaced.
Thankfully, in this article, we will provide you with a list of questions to ask yourself that will help you to know that it is indeed a good idea to replace your HVAC system especially if you want to add value to your home.
#1 – How Old Is Your HVAC?
Although your HVAC may currently be running well, if your system is more than 15 years old, this is when you should consider replacing it because anything older than 10 years will be potentially seen as a liability to home buyers, and also a turnoff.
#2 – Should You Repair Your HVAC Instead Of Replacing It?
Not sure if you should repair your HVAC instead of replacing it? Yes, you may want to consider spending the money to repair your HVAC but if the total cost of repairs is $5,000, or more, then you should consider replacing your HVAC.
#3 – Is Your HVAC Energy-Efficient?
Last of all, but most important, another great question to ask before replacing your HVAC is if your current HVAC system is energy efficient or not.
Technology has improved dramatically in the last 10 years and if your HVAC unit is more than 10 years old there’s a strong chance that it won’t be considered energy efficient by today’s standards.
