Will Updating My Air Conditioning Add to My Home’s Value?

Upgrading Home with New AC in Hagerstown

So many people ask us whether updating their air conditioning will add to their home’s value! It’s a good question, too! Here’s what we have to say on the matter.

It depends.

When Should I Update My A/C?

There are a few important factors to consider when it comes to air conditioning and home value.

  • Is your system working? If your system isn’t working and you’ve been living without air conditioning, you should definitely install a new system before you try to sell the house. Potential buyers will be put off by an air conditioner that doesn’t work.
  • Is your system energy-efficient? If you’re in a competitive selling environment, having an energy-efficient HVAC system can help your home sell faster. In general, homes with energy-efficient systems sell for more than those without them, though the amount that you get may not cover the cost of installing the system itself.
  • Is your system old? If your air conditioner is more than 10 years old, you may get more for your home by installing a new one. This is especially true if most of the other homes for sale in your area have older systems.
