HVAC Maintenance to Perform Before Selling a Home

HVAC Maintenance to Perform Before Selling a HomeIf you’re planning on selling a home in the near future, it’s important to make sure it’s in the best shape possible. As you get your home ready to go on the market, don’t overlook your HVAC system. Keep the following tips in mind to ensure that your heating and cooling equipment is in good condition. Doing so can help boost your home’s value and impress interested home buyers.

Put in a Clean Air Filter

Having a clean air filter in your HVAC system helps keep it running efficiently and results in improved air quality, which can impress home buyers. Leaving a dusty or dirty filter in makes your heating and cooling system run more often, leading to excessive wear and tear. Since HVAC systems are expensive to replace, home buyers will want to count on your current system lasting as long as possible.

Clean the Outdoor Unit

If your HVAC unit is in a noticeable area, you’ll want to make sure the area around it looks tidy. Having weeds or overgrown bushes around will hurt your home’s curb appeal and could damage your HVAC unit. Clear away dead leaves and twigs, along with any vegetation that’s growing around your outdoor unit. Trim bushes and shrubs so that they leave plenty of room for air to flow through. You should have a few feet of space on all sides around your outdoor HVAC unit.

Schedule Professional Maintenance

Although there are simple tasks you can do to prepare your HVAC system when selling a home, other tasks are best left to professionals. Schedule heating and cooling maintenance early to identify any problems your system might have. This gives you time to fix these issues before your home goes on the market. A professional HVAC technician will make sure your system is clean and in good condition.
