Does the State of Your HVAC System Affect Home Value?

October 10, 2022 | Blog

In a seller’s market, it’s important to keep up with the state of your home. Many homeowners are prepping their old appliances to make sure the house keeps its value. The quality of your appliances can make or break the value of your home, and your HVAC system is no exception to that rule. Your HVAC unit can make or break the value of your home, so taking good care of it should be one of your top priorities. The impact your heating and cooling system has on home value is undeniable. By the final sale, homeowners can lose thousands of dollars with appliances alone!

How Your HVAC System Affects Your Home Value

If you’ve ever worried about the impact your air conditioning system has on home value, you’re not alone. Air conditioners in bad shape can make your home uncomfortable, and bring down the value of your home. AC systems can be expensive, but an outdated one brings your home value down twice as much. To ballpark your house’s value, talk to a realtor about your appliances, home size and location.

The efficiency of your air conditioning system is going to be a growing priority for buyers. Energy efficiency increases home value by 10% due to long-term cost and sustainability. When the tides have turned on the seller’s market, these factors will be important. You want your house to have a higher value as the house prices crash, giving you a greater return.

Will Updating Your HVAC Increase Value, And Is It Worth It?

Updating your HVAC system can be high risk, high reward. Spending too much on a system that doesn’t work can be a death toll on your house, but allowing your system to age is worse. If your AC system always needs repair, isn’t working or is making loud noises, it’s better to take the risk.

Making the decision to repair your air conditioning system rather than replace it can be a cost saver, but it is not a long-term fix. Outdated HVAC systems generally have outdated coolant instead of R-410A. R-410A is an ozone-friendly coolant, and any new AC runs on it due to environmental law. Older refrigerants also may be cancerous, rare and expensive compared to new compounds. The impact your HVAC system has on home value doesn’t stop with the system itself, but the coolant as well. Replacing your unit is going to restore your home value much more than a repair.

The Service Was Excellent

We called late one evening after our AC went out. They were very responsive and technician David Monk was at our home at 8:00am the next day as promised. He diagnosed the issue, got the part needed, installed and tested it all by 10:00am. The service was excellent and David was so nice and personable. I would highly recommend this company.
