Selling in 2018? Should You Replace Your HVAC?

February 6, 2018 | Blog

Selling in 2018? Should You Replace Your HVAC? If you’re planning to put your home on the market this year, your Realtor has likely told you that making smart improvements can boost its appeal with potential buyers. If the heating and cooling equipment is getting older, you may be wondering whether replacing your HVAC when selling your home is a wise choice.

Here are some factors to consider to help you decide:


Most buyers want peace of mind that the home they buy has a reliable heating and cooling system. Because of our long Coastal Bend cooling season, they’ll be particularly concerned about your air conditioner or heat pump and want to know whether it has broken down recently, and if it has ample life expectancy remaining.

Energy Efficiency

During our hot, humid summers, it costs a lot to keep a home comfortable, so buyers will also ask about the SEER rating of your cooling equipment and possibly want to see your recent household energy bills. If your A/C is new with a high efficiency rating, buyers can rest easy knowing they won’t have to pay unnecessarily high energy bills.

Repairs and Maintenance

The maintenance and repair history of a home’s HVAC equipment is another consideration for many home buyers. If yours has needed frequent repairs, or hasn’t been professionally maintained regularly, this can put doubts in a buyer’s mind about the overall condition of your property.

Tech-Savvy Features

HVAC systems equipped with smart controls and the latest technological advancements are becoming increasingly popular with home buyers who want to streamline comfort, convenience and connectivity whether they’re home or away.

Perceived Value

If you decide to install new HVAC equipment before selling your home, you can expect to recoup 35–50 percent of the cost, so a replacement may not seem financially worthwhile. Having a brand new HVAC system in place can give you a ROI greater than the actual dollar figure, though, because it can make your home more attractive to buyers and help it sell faster.

Great company. Contacted my current AC company to check on my warranty before charging me anything. Saved me a bunch of money and headache if dealing with anything. Would definitely recommend them and use them again.
