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.
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.
