A home fitted with modern and efficient air conditioning and heating systems is a home that has a high resale value, especially compared to homes fitted with older systems. A ductless heat pump is energy efficient and provides an exceptional level of comfort and control. Green energy and advanced climate control are advantages that become major assets when reselling.
Assurance for homebuyers
Buyers are primarily concerned with making sure a home’s systems, such as air conditioning and heating, function well. Decor, design – even square footage – are of secondary concern. Buyers seek assurance that these crucial, complex and potentially costly systems will not be needing repairs or replacing for a long time. Well maintained HVAC (heating, ventilation, air conditioning) systems are reassuring to buyers. That is why these systems are often the first elements evaluated during a pre-purchase inspection.
According to the Appraisal Institute of Canada, installing a central air conditioning system can increase the market value of your property by 25 to 75%, and replacing the heating system can increase it by 50 to 80%. A ductless heat pump has the energy efficiency and advanced temperature control that buyers are looking for – and for which they are willing to pay more. It is also a huge advantage that a heat pump provides both air conditioning in summer and heating in winter.
Since air leakage through the ducts can represent up to 30% of the cost of heating or air conditioning, a ductless system reduces waste and your energy bills, too. A ductless heat pump with reusable filters is an ecological electrical unit that greatly increases the resale value of your home.
Flexibility for future renovations
A ductless system eliminates the challenges presented by the existence of ductwork behind the walls and beneath the floors of your home. It can be expensive and complicated to reroute or remove ductwork. Redoing ductwork may also create problems with other systems in your home, such as the insulation or the wiring. A home with a ductless heat pump is a home without constraints for renovation and remodeling in years to come.
A ductless air conditioning and heating system will improve your quality of life while you live in your home, but it is also an investment for the future if you ever decide to sell. Houses equipped with modern air filtration systems sell faster and for a better price than those without. Buyers are willing to pay more because they will save on energy bills, because ductless heat pumps are environmentally friendly, because these systems offer precise control and, of course, unmatched comfort.
