GUARANTEED COMFORT & AFFORDABILITY
Whether you need heating, air conditioning, or indoor air quality services, we have an HVAC contractor ready to handle the job.
Buying a home is both thrilling and a touch scary. For many potential home buyers in the El Paso market, there’s an extra level of worry, because although the market is currently busy and competitive, there are fewer new homes for sale. Purchasing an older home brings up new questions about how many upgrades the house may need.
A part of an older home that may need an extensive upgrade is its HVAC system. This isn’t a cosmetic part of the house: it’s essential for comfort and energy efficiency. A home can look beautiful but have a money-draining old HVAC system hiding inside. Making upgrades with a new furnace or air conditioner, repairs to aging components, and changes to ductwork can turn into the most expensive part of getting a “fixer-upper.”
We’re here to help you with education about HVAC systems in older homes. You can use this information whether you’re looking to purchase or sell a house in the current market.
Never be afraid to ask questions about the HVAC system when approaching an older home purchase. This isn’t an eye-catching feature of a house, but you need to know important information about it so you’ll understand what kind of upgrades you’ll have to make in the near future.
All these questions will lead to the overall big question to ask yourself: Will I need to have the HVAC system of this home replaced?
Don’t worry if you feel bewildered about what upgrades are necessary for an older home’s HVAC system. This is why you have the local experts at Peak Home Performance around. Whether you’re buying a home or selling one, you can place your full trust in our HVAC knowledge to help you with the diagnostics that will give you the information you need.
We’re better than relying on a home inspector. An inspector can help with many parts of a house, but few of these inspectors are HVAC professionals.
Most of what we talked about above also applies if you’re selling a home, although you may need to take extra steps to help draw buyers. For example, consider the efficiency ratings of the HVAC system (SEER, HSPF, AFUE). High-efficiency systems are very appealing to potential buyers, and if the equipment in the house is already over 10 years old, you may wish to replace it to take advantage of the best in current high-efficiency systems.
If you’re a real estate professional, our team at Peak Home Services has the knowledge of the local market and the skills necessary to get HVAC upgrades, replacements, and retrofits done quickly and affordably. We’re trustworthy, know the area, and are responsive.
