If you need to sell your home there a couple of things you can do with your heating and air conditioning unit that may make things easier:

Make sure your Air Conditioner is not at the end of its life

Air conditioning and heating systems typically last 10-15 years. Replacing an air conditioning and heating unit can be costly but home buyers are getting more savvy about the cost of air conditioning repairs as well. It could be in your best interest to take that worry out of your prospective buyers’ minds. You can get especially good deals replacing an AC system during a “dead” month, like September. What you actually pay for in replacement could help you avoid a more costly total-purchase-price reduction on your home.

Make sure your home is as energy efficient as possible

A recent study in USA Today showed that green-certified homes sell for 9% more than regular homes. Ask yourself: what is 9% of my home’s selling price? From your insulation to your windows to your air conditioner and furnace, there are all kinds of energy efficiencies to be aware of. Have one of our professional technicians come out to inspect your home for inefficiencies – a lot of changes are fairly easy and inexpensive.

Make sure you keep on your warranty checks

Every heating and air conditioning unit has its own set of warranty requirements. Proving that you have kept up on the service checks is important to maintaining your warranty which is, in turn, important to potential buyers. If you haven’t been doing that so far, that is no reason not to start. Getting a professional air conditioning tune-up, cleaning and inspection can go a long way in helping certify your home’s largest appliance and give your buyers the peace of mind they need.

To schedule an appointment for a home efficiency inspection or a $99 professional 22-point tune-up and safety check, call us at (310) 419-8902.
