Upgrading certain things on or in your home is a way to increase home equity and homeowners should be aware of this.
- One way to increase house equity is by replacing or upgrading your heating, ventilation, and air conditioning system in your home! Some things you can do to increase your house equity are installing a smart temperature control, a zoning system, improved air filtration, or an energy recovery ventilator (ERV).
A smart temperature control lets you control energy consumption and enable temperature regulation using a smart device. You can program your HVAC system to turn on and heat or cool your house to a specifically set temperature. A smart temperature control can increase your house equity by 5%. A zoning plan lets you regulate temperature levels in particular areas in your home. This is an ideal way to minimize cold and hot spots and reduce your power consumption. They work quietly and with high efficiency. If you or your family members suffer from air quality, pollen irritations or asthma, this could be a concern brought on by the presence of dust and other allergens in the air caused by low air quality in your home. If your heating and cooling system is still using 1-inch filters, this could be the source of health problems. Improved air filtration can improve air quality. Some examples of improved air filtration systems include UV light air purification systems and whole-house air purification systems. An energy recovery ventilator(ERV) is another way to increase house equity. It works well with an air filtration system. An ERV exchanges stale air from the inside with fresh air from the outside. This process goes on without energy loss unlike when you open the windows to let fresh air into your home. If you are looking to increase your home’s equity, calling a professional to replace your house is a chance that you must be more comfortable taking which will save you money.
