The Furnace and Hot Water Tank are components that should be serviced by a licensed, bonded and insured Heating And Cooling Service Contractor prior to putting your home on the market. Here’s are some reasons why.
1. Home inspectors and buyers are not heating & cooling experts. When they see an updated service sticker on those items they usually will not call for another inspection by a service contractor.
2. The hot water tank and furnace need periodic maintenance and knowing that they have been serviced will provide both the seller and buyer peace of mind.
3. Hot water tanks have a life expectancy of 10-15 years. Replacement of an older unit will save energy and can prevent a potential costly tank failure.
4. Gas or oil furnaces and hot water tanks can leak deadly carbon monoxide fumes into your home.
Having the furnace and hot water tank serviced and working properly will let you concentrate on the marketing and sale of your home with confidence. It also demonstrates to the buyer that you are committed to their safety and peace of mind.
