From what we can tell, the ductwork is dirty and in desperate need of a good clean.
My husband and I have been debating on whether or not we want to sell our house. The housing market is thriving right now, so there’s a great chance that we’d make a lot of profit from the sale. However, the house is several decades old and it’s in need of some attention. The biggest thing that needs to be replaced is the HVAC system. The current HVAC system is almost as old as the house, and while it still heats and cools our home, it doesn’t run very efficiently. The HVAC equipment is outdated and the smallest setback makes the entire thing run even more inefficiently. For example, if the leaves aren’t pulled back from the outdoor condenser unit, then our utility bill will double. The same can be said about replacing the air filter. If we kept our house, then we’d run the risk of having to replace the entire HVAC system within the next year. New HVAC systems are several thousand dollars, and there’s always the chance that we’d have to replace the ductwork too. From what we can tell, the ductwork is dirty and in desperate need of a good clean. New ductwork is not an expense that we’re eager to pay. The HVAC system alone has my husband and I debating on whether or not we need to list our house. Neither of us want to spend thousands of dollars on a new HVAC system and new ductwork, but we also know that it could increase the value.
