One thing that many homeowners focus on is maintaining (and if possible, increasing) the value of their home. This is especially true for anyone who believes that resale is a possibility in their future.
Upkeep of vital systems, such as the heating and cooling system, is essential to maintaining a home’s resale value. While it may not add a lot of curb appeal, proper HVAC maintenance can help entice future home buyers. Here are a few reasons why:
Peace of Mind
One of the most powerful selling points for potential home buyers is peace of mind. They want to know that their future home (and its critical components) are in good condition. Preventative HVAC maintenance helps provide this assurance. Maintenance reduces the buyer’s risk of needing to spend on costly HVAC repairs, or a full unit replacement, in the short-term.
Comfort in the Home
Proper heating and cooling is a hallmark of a modern home. In most cases, buyers want to know that they will be comfortable in their new home. Proper HVAC maintenance will ensure that the buyer, and their family, will enjoy that comfort for years to come.
Lower Energy Bills
One of the biggest benefits of proper HVAC maintenance is lower heating and cooling costs. For areas that experience warm summers and cold winters (such as Central Pennsylvania), this benefit is especially appealing. Optimized energy bills can be a major plus for resale value.
If home buyers, or their children, suffer from allergies or asthma, then air quality is likely an important factor for them. Beyond heating and cooling, your HVAC system works to remove allergens, dust, and other pollutants from your home’s air. Potential buyers will be thankful for this benefit.
Overall Condition of the Home
Proper upkeep of your HVAC system is an indicator of the home’s overall condition. Buyers want to know that the home has been taken care of. Showcasing the condition of the HVAC unit can help satisfy that demand.
If you envision selling your home, then maintenance of your home’s vital systems (like your HVAC unit) is important. Home buyers want to know that their heating and cooling system will keep them comfortable for years to come. These are just a few of the reasons why HVAC maintenance is important to your home’s resale value.
