Questions To Ask When Considering HVAC Upgrades
How old is your HVAC system? If it’s more than ten years, you could be a few years away from an upgrade. Older than 15? A replacement is likely your best move. Whatever your system’s age, make sure you stay on top of repairs and maintenance because this can extend its life considerably. If at any point repairs end up costing more than $5000, however, you need to start looking at replacement systems.
A huge reason you might want to upgrade, regardless of your current unit’s age and condition, is improvements in energy-efficient HVAC systems. Not only can switching to an energy-efficient system save you money on energy bills and offer tax breaks, but they also increase home values anywhere from 5% to 8%. If you’re thinking of selling your home in the next few years, an energy-efficient upgrade might be a great move.
Other HVAC Related Upgrade Options
When people think of HVAC system upgrades, they typically only consider the heating and cooling system. Limiting upgrades to the system alone could leave thousands of dollars on the table should you decide to sell later down the line. If you’re looking to make home upgrades that will increase the value of your home, here’s a list you’ll want to consider.
- Heating/Cooling Systems
- Air Ducts
- Doors and Weather Stripping
Luxury HVAC Options
If your HVAC is ship-shape, but you’ve got money earmarked for home improvements, you may want to consider a few “extras” to add to the desirability of your home. Smart thermostats top the list of features that attract buyers, according to Zillow. Smart thermostats are also energy-efficient, allowing you to monitor overall energy consumption and temperatures from your device. These devices are relatively inexpensive to purchase, but they can increase your home’s value by a whopping 5%.
Other luxury upgrades include Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF) and a whole-home dehumidifier. If you think either of these is what you’re looking for, any one of our licensed and qualified HVAC contractors can assist you in finding the exact mix you’re looking for.
