If you’re in the business of flipping homes, you know the value of making the right upgrades. One of the most important parts of the job is assessing the current state of the home and identifying areas where you can add value to the property. The HVAC system is one of the best places to begin.
Any Buyer Can Appreciate the Results
One of the most troublesome points when it comes to upgrading a home is personal taste. You may love the look of a clawfoot tub but find that your buyer is more interested in a spacious shower. While a bold backsplash can make some swoon, others will find it overpowering. An efficient HVAC system is something any homeowner can appreciate, though. Chicago’s diverse weather conditions necessitate both heating and air conditioning for year-round comfort. There are no cosmetics to consider, and the financial perks of a year-round energy-efficient system speak for themselves.
Better HVAC Systems Pay You Back
The perks of an energy-efficient HVAC system are easy to sell to a prospective homebuyer. A standard cooling system will have higher operating costs than a high-efficiency upgrade. A standard heating system will also rack up higher operating costs than a high-efficiency system. These upgrades will undoubtedly increase the value of your home.
Your cooling system will be rated using SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio) and your heating system will be evaluated based on the Heating Seasonal Performance Factor (HSPF). The higher the numbers, the more efficiently the units will perform in heating and cooling your home.
A New System Minimizes Repair Costs
Homeowners will have fewer repairs to worry about with a new HVAC system than they would with an older, outdated model. This is something any buyer can readily realize and appreciate. Buying a new home is enough of an expense. Buyers don’t want to worry about major appliance replacements on the horizon. With a new installation in place, they won’t have to.
