You finally found the home of your dreams and it’s listed at the right price, but one thing many homebuyers overlook is the validity of the disclosure sheet – especially when it comes to monthly energy bills. Do you really know if the previous owners were comfortable in their home? Or were they trying to cut costs by keeping their house at 60 degrees? These are just some questions to think about before you buy a new home. Read on to learn more about why you should call an HVAC technician before you purchase a new home.
How HVAC Professionals Can Help You Before You Buy
Having an HVAC technician come out to assess the home before you purchase can help ease your mind when it comes to the hidden costs associated when it comes to living in the house. What we have found in our past experience, is that you can add 3-5% to your energy bill for each degree you increase your temperature. If the previous owner kept their house at 65 degrees and your family is comfortable at 69, that’s a 12 – 20% increase in your energy cost. A professional technician will take into account the size of the home and the setup of the rooms in order to understand the flow patterns of the existing heating and cooling system. They can also examine the heating and cooling units to determine how reliable the system is. This will help you to know if your soon-to-be purchase will really be worth it or not. You may have found a home at a really good price, but the cost of heating or cooling it per month could alter your thoughts on how reasonable the monthly upkeep of the house is.
Our technicians are also able to tell you what your savings per month could be if you had a new system installed. If you are really set on purchasing the home, the technician can even suggest that you try an alternative heating solution and give you a price quote.
If you end up making the decision to have your unit replaced, we have fantastic financing options that will allow you to enjoy your new home without the stress of another high payment. Right now, we are offering 0% interest for 72 months until February 28, 2018. With these financing options, you could have a new system installed, pay your monthly energy bills, and still be paying less per month than you were before.
One other thing to keep in mind while you are considering a home, is to ask about any previous animals. While a technician is examining the home, they can also give you a quote to have the air ducts cleaned. If there were any cats or dogs that inhabited the home before you purchased, you will also want to have the ducts cleaned when you first move in. This will allow your unit to run more efficiently, thus, saving you money in the long run. If someone in your family is allergic to either animal, this will alleviate their allergies and allow them to breathe more comfortably.
