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.
