Ways Your HVAC Professional Can Help You During The Home Buying And Selling Process

When you sell your home or buy another home, ensuring home system and component care and quality is an important part of the process as they can add to or detract from the home's value. When you sell your home, the more well-maintained its systems are the better for its eventual sale. And when you buy another home, you want to make sure it has a working air conditioner and heating system, for example, free of problems. So, as you sell or buy a home, here are some ways your residential air conditioning repair professional can help you out.

Professional Service and Tune-Up

When you are preparing to sell your home, it is essential to get your home move-in ready and appealing to a buyer in as many ways as possible. If the home interior or exterior needs a new coat of paint, you should paint it. And if your air conditioner has sat over the winter, you can get it serviced and cleaned out so it is ready to run for the summer. This is especially important when you are listing your home for sale in the spring. Your home's air conditioner should be all ready to run for a buyer who tours your home.

Before you list your home, as part of the preparation call your HVAC professional for an annual tune-up. A tune-up will include a systems check to your air conditioner to make sure the motor is working well, the coils are cleaned, and the compressor is working well. They can check for any excessive wear on parts and replace them before they cause your unit to break down during the hottest part of the year.

When you list your home for sale, you can include the details that your air conditioner has been inspected and received a tune-up for this year and any other subsequent years. When you take care of your home's systems on a regular basis with cleaning and tune-ups, your buyer will know they will be buying a home with well-maintained systems, including your air conditioner, that has not been neglected.

Home Inspection

When you find a home you want to buy, your HVAC professional can make sure the home's heating and air conditioning systems work as they should. This step should be completed after you make an offer to buy the home, and provides you the chance to have professional look at the home's systems and components to detect any problems. Once you know the condition of the systems, you can adjust your offer or back out of the purchase of the home.

Have your HVAC professional inspect the home's heating and cooling and give you a full report on their condition. And once you have decided to buy the home, your HVAC professional can complete any necessary maintenance and repairs on the home's HVAC to make sure it continues to work properly.
