It’s April, and that means it’s spring. It’s also tax refund season. According to the IRS, more than 80% of taxpayers received a refund last year.
While some choose to spend that money on a vacation or a boat, we’d argue that there are good reasons to re-invest that sudden influx of cash into your home.
In this blog, we’ll make the case that you should spend your tax refund on upgrading your old air conditioner to a newer model. We’ll explain the benefits, and who you should call for AC installation here in Hayward and much of the Bay Area.
Here are 4 reasons to spend your tax refund on a new air conditioner
#1. Increase the value of your home
If you’re thinking about selling your home in the near future, you’re probably also thinking about what kind of upgrades you can make to increase your home’s selling value.
An old air conditioner that the new owners know they’ll have to replace can be a major blow to their decision to purchase your home from you. When it comes to investing your tax refund back into your home prior to sale, a new air conditioner makes sense.
By spending your tax refund to buy a new air conditioner for your home prior to sale, you’ll not only be more likely to sell your home for a higher price, but you’ll also be likelier to sell your home faster than your neighbors.
#2. Save on future energy costs
Even if you’re not actively looking to sell your home, a new air conditioner is still a wise choice. Not only will a new air conditioner offer greater reliability (more on that in a minute), but you’ll see greater energy savings, as well. That’s because new air conditioners are more energy-efficient than older systems.
Over time, those enhanced energy savings can really add up. A new air conditioner, installed today, can start saving you money this summer. That’s a good use of your tax refund, if you ask us!
#3. Reduce the risk of a breakdown
If your old air conditioner has consistently been breaking down each and every summer—even with a professional tune-up—it’s time to upgrade. Your tax refund is a great place to start.
After all, not only are you getting subpar cooling and energy-efficiency out of your system, but breakdowns can actively cost you money in AC repair over the summer.
#4. Make your home more comfortable
Ok, so this isn’t quite as forward-thinking as the other items on this list. But, your comfort does matter, and struggling through another hot summer with your old air conditioner—along with the stress it causes—just isn’t worth it.
If you’re between spending your tax refund on a vacation or an HVAC system, choose the latter. You’ll feel the difference every summer for years to come.
