Here’s why you should spend your tax refund on a new AC upgrade

It’s tax refund season. According to the IRS, most Americans can expect to see a refund this season. While many will spend their refund on vacations, cars, or boats, there are better long-term uses for the money.

In this blog, we’ll discuss why you should consider boosting your home’s value, curb appeal, and comfort by buying a new air conditioner from us here at AxsomAir.

Outside of paying down debt or investing your tax refund, the next-best use of the money is investing in your home’s value. That’s because your home’s equity is a relatively consistent asset; you’ll certainly get more, in the long-term, out of home upgrades than, say, buying a new car or taking a vacation.

If you have an older air conditioner, it makes sense to use your tax refund on a new AC upgrade. Here in our hot, humid summer climate here in Louisiana, a new air conditioner is a great selling point that can significantly raise your home’s value while providing you with comfort in the present.

#2. Boost the curb appeal of your home

This is related to your home’s value, but a bit different. In real estate, “curb appeal” refers to the reasons that prospective buyers decide to take a closer look at your home after seeing the listing online or hearing initial details from their realtor. If you’re thinking about selling your home in the next decade, the curb appeal of your home matters.

With online listing sites now prevalent, one of the first things a prospective buyer can see is the age of the HVAC systems. If you have an older system, they may decide to pass on your home altogether.

Why? Consider this: when you’re buying a home, on-hand cash is low. You have to pay not only the downpayment, but also closing costs, fees, and much more. Not only that, but the buyer also has to pay for moving and relocation costs, new furniture, home upgrades, and more. The last thing a new buyer wants is the hassle of an air conditioner on its last legs.

By using your tax refund to buy a new air conditioner—professionally installed by the team here at AxsomAir—your home’s curb appeal with benefit.

#3. Enjoy the comfort for yourself

Of course, buying a new air conditioner with your tax refund doesn’t have to be a dollars-and-cents decision. If you have an older air conditioner that just can’t keep up with what your family needs, you should make the switch and enjoy the comfort a new Trane provides.
