It really did pay off to upgrade the HVAC equipment

So, she came with data from comps in the area that proved her point

To say I was skeptical is to understate my feelings to as large a degree as possible really. When the real estate agent told us that our HVAC equipment needed to be replaced, I wasn’t pleased. The realtor was sort of abrupt and overly direct about all the stuff that needed to be done to our house before she would list it. That got under my skin for sure because I thought it was less than respectful and not a great way to do business. However, that was a small part of my skepticism when it came to the heating and cooling equipment upgrade. I pushed back on the HVAC upgrade because I had invested so much HVAC maintenance into the current HVAC unit. It wasn’t quite 15 years old and had gotten heating maintenance in the fall and an air conditioning tune-up each spring. There was never a missed appointment in all those years thanks to the HVAC service plan we signed up for the day after it was installed. So, I felt really not great at all about trashing heating and cooling equipment that was clearly working remarkably well and had at least a decade of service left. Fortunately, the business first realtor was a professional and really good at what she did. So, she came with data from comps in the area that proved her point. Still, I talked with the HVAC professionals to see if perhaps the HVAC unit could be removed and repurposed for someone who might need it. That’s what ended up happening so I felt much better when it came to getting the latest in residential HVAC to sell our house.
