Can An Air Conditioner Type Effect Home Value?
The short answer…Yes.
Air Conditioning systems keep your home at a cool climate when outside temperatures reach the 90’s and 100’s. Home buyers value a residence that they can be confident will remain at a comfortable temperature regardless of the temperature outside.
Residential homes consist of central, ductless split systems, and window units.
Central Air Conditioning System
Central Air systems are set up with an outside unit that pushes air to metal ducts and vents throughout the house to cool the space as one.
Ductless Split System
Ductless systems have a similar outside setup as central air but the outside compressor attaches to wall mounted ac units that are build to regulate the temperature in one room.
Window Unit System
The Window Unit System has the compressor and ac unit all together in one package that is mounted on a window.
Central AC is the winner of these 3 air conditioning systems and vastly increases the value of your home. Real Estate experts, such as The National Association of Realtors, estimate the value of a home can increase by nearly 12 percent with the addition of a Central Air Conditioning System.
