Whether it’s your home or an investment property, the right underfloor heating system can deliver outstanding returns on investment and make it more appealing to prospective tenants or homebuyers when you decide to sell. In Sydney, as in all metropolitan areas, the housing market is extremely competitive and property owners must look for ways to enhance the value of homes and investment properties. Astute home improvements, like underfloor heating systems, could be an excellent way to enhance property value and appeal.
How Does Underfloor Heating Increase Property Value?
As with any investment in a home or rental property, you have to make the right home improvement choices, and heated floors are no exception. Due to the increasing emphasis placed on energy-efficient home heating and cooling, homebuyers and tenants are looking for properties to buy and rent that enable them to live as comfortably and energy-efficiently as possible. So, before installing an underfloor heating system, ask yourself questions such as:
- How much am I currently paying for heating and is it too much
- What’s the best heating system for my floors?
- Which areas/rooms need to be heated?
These are just a few of the many questions you’ll need to ask yourself to choose the right underfloor heating system for your home or rental property, and as there’s so much to consider, you’ll also need the advice and expertise of a trusted underfloor heating specialist. Once you’ve installed the right heated floor solution (in-screed or in-slab heating, electric or hydronic, etc.) for your property, it will increase in both financial value and appeal among prospective homebuyers and tenants due to a wealth of outstanding benefits such as:
- Higher levels of energy-efficiency that deliver lower energy bills.
With the already high (and increasing) energy prices here in Australia, energy-efficiency and cost-effective comfort are important issues. With hydronic underfloor heating in your new home, your system can be made even more energy-efficient by using a heat pump or solar energy.
- Higher comfort levels at home.
Global climate change is an issue that affects our lifestyles and the way we live at home. As such, energy-efficient properties that deliver high comfort levels are in demand. Hydronic underfloor heating distributes heat evenly, eliminating cold spots and making the entire space more comfortable.
- Unprecedented levels of convenience.
Heated floor systems can be integrated with home automation systems, operated remotely and zone-controlled to deliver exceptional levels of comfort and convenience. This has the effect of enhancing the value of the home and, consequently, selling prices and rental rates.
- Healthier home living.
As traditional heating systems use convection currents that increase airborne dust particles, underfloor heating is a healthier option that has the effect of enhancing property value.
