It has been tough, but you finally made the decision to sell your house. It could be for any number of reasons. You could be moving for a great job opportunity. The kids have left home and downsizing makes sense. Or maybe it’s a case of wanderlust and you no longer want to be tied down. Now the question becomes, how to make sure you get the best return on your investment? Considering an HVAC replacement may increase your home’s value before selling.
We want you to know Kotz Heating, Cooling & Plumbing can help. No, we’re not going to handle the scrubbing, painting, and cleaning to get your home ready for open houses and visits by potential buyers. But we can help make your home stand out from all the other houses for sale. Oftentimes, sellers put all the emphasis on cosmetics and curb appeal. Kotz wants to make sure you don’t forget about your HVAC systems and other home comfort appliances.
It’s important to remember an HVAC replacement can be a good investment when you are selling a home. If your current systems are outdated and not energy efficient, potential buyers can be scared off.
With all of these things in mind, here is our HVAC home selling checklist.
Schedule a professional HVAC tune-up
Don’t take the risk of an embarrassing breakdown when potential buyers are on their way to see the home or are already in the house. During the HVAC tune-up your technician will clean the units making them look much newer.
Ductwork and filtration
Kotz will inspect your ductwork, make sure any ductwork is sealed, and repair any leaks they find. We will also make sure you have proper filtration and that the air filters are clean.
Update your home’s system controls to reflect current technology
Make sure you have a programmable thermostat. Wi-Fi enabled is preferable, and Kotz has you covered. One of our HVAC technicians can install a new programmable thermostat in your home to make it more desirable to potential buyers in today’s market. Your home may feel outdated if you don’t have the newest technology.
