Hello and welcome. This is Nolan Formalarie with DiscoverNChomes and Nolan’s News. We are in the spring season here and I wanted to talk about heating and air units and the importance, at least in my opinion, of getting them maintained or tuned up twice a year.

So most heating and air companies will do a tune-up in the spring before you put your cooling on, and then sometime in the fall, before you turn your heating on. I want to talk about how this relates to buyers and sellers in the real estate market.

So the first thing is, as a seller, if you are getting regular maintenance on your heating and cooling system, it almost creates a maintenance report, like for your car when you get oil changes done. So when you go to sell your house it may:
– number one, negate the reason for a buyer to want to do a heating and cooling separate inspection from a home inspection;
– number two, if you can give a nice maintenance record to the buyer showing where things have been cleaned, maintained, they’re less likely to want to ask you for a discount because your heating and air unit might be older, it has issues, etc. So it really helps the seller in relation to selling their home, because now you have a nice maintenance record

For the buyer I think it’s also very relevant because most of the time the buyer will stick with that same company who the seller has been using, they have a rapport with that company, now they have, again, a history of that heating or cooling unit.

So I think it’s a good thing to do, we’re in the season to do it. We have many local heating and air people here that can help you out. If you have any questions or if you want some preferred vendors that we here at DiscoverNChome use, we’d be more than happy to share their names and numbers. And as always, thank you for having me. If you have any heating and cooling questions, just let us know.
