When you are selling your home, there are lots of things to consider helping make the sale a quick one. The kitchen and bathroom are typically said to be the most important rooms in the home but there is another big factor to consider – the condition of your boiler and heating systems.
Studies have shown that a new boiler can help when selling your home. Now you don’t need to replace it for no reason – if yours is only a few years old then this is great. But if you have an older boiler that is approaching 7-10 years of age, then it is worth considering it. The main reason is that the boiler will no longer be A-rated energy efficient and this can reduce the overall energy efficiency rating of the home.
Energy efficiency is big for several reasons. There’s the environmental concerns – people don’t want to waste power because this increases their carbon footprint. Then there’s financial reasons – boilers cost more to run when they aren’t energy efficient. By replacing an older boiler with a new one you can increase the home’s rating and save future homeowners money which means your house could well sell quicker.
If you do have a medium age boiler that works well, have a service on it before you put the house up for sale. This can be shown to potential buyers to show the system is efficient and well maintained, adding those plus points to your home.
