Electrical Improvements to Increase Your Home’s Value
October 18, 2022
If you are considering selling your home, you have likely thought about performing some repairs or completing certain projects to optimize your resale value. While most homeowners will think about a new coat of paint or installing new countertops, there are several electrical improvement projects that can be performed to increase the value of your home. As a leading provider of complete residential electrical services, the team at Blue Crest Electric knows how valuable certain upgrades can be for all types of buyers. That is why our team has put together a list of electrical improvements to increase your home’s value to demonstrate why it is worth hiring a professional electrician to make your home more appealing to buyers.
4 Ways to Increase Your Home’s Value Through Electrical Improvements
If you are looking to increase your home’s resale value and make a strong impression on potential buyers, consider hiring a professional electrician to:
1. Upgrade Your Electrical Panel
If your home is several decades old, your electrical panel may not be suitable for modern devices. While older panels used to be sufficient for most families, recently constructed homes are equipped with 200-amp panels to meet the demands of modern technology. An outdated electrical panel will always be uncovered and scrutinized during a home inspection, potentially deterring buyers or making them reconsider their offer. By taking the time to hire an electrician to upgrade your electrical panel, you are saving work for buyers while making a stronger impression on them, making this upgrade well worth the cost.
2. Install a Backup Generator
Backup generators are a great feature for any home as they can supply power to key areas during an outage. This is an especially valuable feature for areas that are subjected to frequent outages as potential buyers can rest easy knowing that their lights, refrigeration systems, and sump pumps will continue to function regardless of the current weather conditions.
3. Replace Your Old Light Fixtures with Modern LED Light Fixtures
Modern LED light fixtures offer enhanced performance while reducing energy consumption and costs, making them a desirable addition to any property. In addition to conventional ceiling lights, consider installing under-cabinet systems in your kitchen and bathrooms. This will allow your home to be sufficiently illuminated throughout the day while keeping costs down, making your home even more appealing.
4. Install Smart Technology
Smart thermostats, locks, and other devices can instantly make your home feel more modern while making a strong first impression on viewers. In addition to enhancing your home’s functionality, most smart technology upgrades can increase energy efficiency, security, and comfort, making them a selling point for any property.
