Did you know that with certain HVAC upgrades, you not only make your home more comfortable, you also raise your home’s equity? Below are four ways to boost your home equity in Dacula, GA, with HVAC upgrades.
Energy Recovery Ventilator
An energy recovery ventilator (ERV) is another way to improve your home’s equity. Energy recovery ventilators remove humidity and condition the fresh air coming into your home in summer. During the cooler months, they take the humidity and heat from the indoor air and transfer it to the incoming fresh air.
Making your home more energy-efficient can increase your home’s value. Also, correcting the humidity level can improve the comfort level inside your home.
Use Home Zoning
A good way to regulate your energy consumption is to control where your heat and air conditioning goes. If you have a room that you don’t want to heat or cool, you can control the temperature with a home zoning system.
If you have a room that isn’t used frequently or or always seems to need more heat, dampers inside the duct system can help alleviate these problems. This is another example of how energy-efficiency helps home equity.
Both high and low humidity levels within your home cause air quality issues that affect your home and your health. High humidity allows biological growth, while low humidity creates static electricity and increases your susceptibility to colds and viruses. Preventing structural damage from high humidity helps with home equity.
Appraisers now include smart devices in their home appraisals. Because of this, a smart thermostat, along with other home automation devices, can increase your home’s equity by 5% according to Tiohome. A smart thermostat allows you to program your preferred temperatures when you’re home or at work, and the smart thermostat adapts to your schedule to increase energy efficiency.
