HVAC Service for Home Sale
Mention “HOMESALE” when booking a service for a home inspection and pay only
$175.00 $125.00. Are you thinking of selling your home? Do you need an inspection before the sale? You might not think about having your HVAC systems inspected as part of your moving process, but you can bet that any prospective buyer will be keenly interested in how your HVAC system looks and operates. Curb appeal is of course very important too, but you shouldn’t overlook the significance of your heating and cooling systems.
Any sharp-eyed buyer will have that on their checklist of things to check out when exploring your house. Your best bet would be to contact Froemke Mechanical Heating & Air Services to schedule HVAC service before you sell your home. After that, there are some things you can do personally, so as to avoid botching the sale of your home because of old or dirty-looking HVAC systems.
What you can do to help your HVAC system
All the technical aspects of HVAC inspection should be left to the professionals, e.g. any necessary repairs or replacements, cleaning, tuning, an overall assessment of performance. As the homeowner, you can do your part too. You can remove all debris such as dirt and grass clippings from your exterior unit, so it doesn’t appear dirty or overlooked. Your HVAC technician will have cleaned or replaced the air filters, but that still leaves a major component of your system unaccounted for.
Even though your duct network is seldom thought of, and even less frequent maintenance, it can be a major source of inefficiency in your heating and cooling system. It would be a good idea to periodically check all the ductwork in your home so that you can find any leaks which would allow conditioned air to escape the ducts, thereby making your HVAC system work harder.
It’s also possible that your network of ducts could become clogged with all kinds of debris, which would also interfere with the efficient distribution of conditioned air. It’s very common for things like animal droppings, dirt, small household items, and even dead birds or other animals to become lodged in the ducting for a home, and to hinder air circulation as well as to potentially cause health problems.
If the HVAC technician from Froemke Mechanical Heating & Air has identified any issues with your heating and cooling system, you should schedule any necessary repairs prior to making your home available for buyer inspections. Such things as replacing the thermostat, replacing any parts which have become worn and less functional, and cleaning dirty coils on your evaporator or condenser, will prepare you much better for confidently showing your home to possible buyers. This will avoid any problems with having the HVAC system nixing a possible sale of your home.
When you’re getting ready to sell your home, remember to schedule service for a home sale, so your HVAC system can be a good selling point when talking to prospective buyers. Instead of making excuses for a dusty old furnace or air conditioner, you can be pointing to a clean, highly functional heating or cooling system that will appeal to any potential home buyers.
