Upgrades for Energy Efficiency, Like New HVAC Systems, Increase the Selling Price of Your Home
If you keep up with the latest real estate news and information, you probably know it’s a great time to sell your home. Because of this, many people are putting their homes on the market. If you’re looking for a way to differentiate yourself from other sellers, while also being able to increase your selling price, you should consider upgrading your home for energy efficiency. In this post, we will look at how installing a new HVAC system and using smart technology, can boost your home’s energy efficiency and entice potential buyers.
Installing a New HVAC System
One of the best ways for a realtor to attract potential homebuyers is to mention that the heating and air conditioning systems have been recently upgraded. This not only tells them that they will be spending less in energy costs, but also that the HVAC system will not need to be replaced any time soon and will still be under manufacturer warranty for quite a while.
Upgrading to Smart Technology
Upgrading to WiFi-enabled programmable thermostats that you can control from your smartphone or tablet is a great way to reduce your energy costs. Because you are able to adjust your home’s temperature remotely, you are not running your air conditioner or furnace unnecessarily. You can set your programmable thermostat to fit with your family’s schedule, and change it remotely, if something comes up.
With the costs of energy increasing while median income is staying the same, homebuyers are paying special attention to the energy efficiency of homes on the market. In fact, according to Consumer Reports, behind community safety ratings, energy efficiency rating is the second most important to homebuyers. So, as a seller, it’s a good idea to look into installing a new, energy efficient HVAC system that uses smart technology.
