Remodeling your house is an excellent way to achieve the home of your dreams. When a homeowner begins the process of remodeling, there are many factors that they must consider. First, if you are planning to move, it is best to keep in mind the resale value of your home. Consider purchasing materials that increase your home’s market value, such as a new and improved HVAC system. 

Typically, HVAC systems last an average of 15 to 25 years. Nevertheless, implementing repairs or replacing an older unit entirely can help increase the overall value of your home. Before purchasing a new unit, first, determine whether repairs to your existing unit will suffice. Suppose your technician decides that it is time for a replacement. In that case, several upgrade options will optimize your home’s heating and cooling—while also ensuring a return on your investment if and when you decide to sell.

Repairs or Replacement?

Depending on the age and the operational status of your HVAC system, you may not need to purchase an entirely new unit. Instead, it may be more feasible to repair your current HVAC if it is less than ten years old, as anything more recent will not make a huge difference in your home’s value. However, if you have owned the unit for more than ten years, it’s probably time to invest in a new HVAC system. A new system is a great selling point for any home.

Energy Efficient HVACs

Today’s homebuyers are gravitating more towards homes that feature energy-efficient appliances. Not only are these types of homes better for the environment—because they consume considerably less energy than average homes—but their decrease in energy use also contributes to lower utility bills. Thus, by purchasing an energy-efficient HVAC system when remodeling your home, you will be making a lasting investment into your home’s equity, helping the environment, and saving costs. 

Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF)

Another excellent option for an HVAC upgrade when remodeling your home is a VRF. This particular system is unique in that VRF units are installed in all rooms to control your home’s energy consumption more precisely. In other words, your system will only cool and heat the rooms of your choosing. As a result, you save on utility costs and make your home more marketable to modern homebuyers. 

Consider Adding a Smart Thermostat

As smart houses are becoming more and more popular, we recommend that all new HVAC systems include smart thermostats. Essentially, a smart thermostat makes it so homeowners can connect to their HVAC systems using their home’s wireless internet, which allows them to control the climate inside their home from any location. 

Furthermore, a smart thermostat will also promote decreased energy consumption and lower utility bills in addition to convenience. These perks make smart thermostats a significant upgrade when remodeling your home. Smart thermostats have become an expectation, so neglecting this step may make your home seem older and less appealing amongst other properties in the modern housing market.
