Are you ready to sell your home, or rent it out? Want to add more value to it before you do so? Air Tech of Houston AC & Plumbing is here to help you achieve that goal. Increasing home value doesn’t have to mean investing in house expansions or other large-scale projects. There are many plumbing upgrades you can do to raise the value of your home. Here are a few.
Water Heater Replacement
Many homebuyers often ask the age of your water heater when considering buying your house. Refusal to change it may decrease your home value significantly. Although, if you do end up changing it, make sure it is listed on your post so it can attract more potential buyers.
Before you pick out a new water heater, make sure it’s the right one for your home. Here at Air Tech of Houston, we’re proud to offer a range of water heater styles. Choose from traditional tanked models or consider an energy-efficient tankless water heater. Our team is happy to walk you through your options.
With older homes come older pipes. If you do not repair or upgrade your pipes, it can cause more clogs or even become cracked in certain areas. Sharp-witted buyers know not to buy a home with faulty pipes, since they will need to replace them sooner rather than later.
By avoiding older plumbing systems, buyers might overlook your home and decrease the chances of selling. Older pipes made of materials such as clay, lead, cast iron or galvanized metal require immediate upgrades to ensure safety and longevity.
An Additional Bathroom
It has been said that adding another bathroom increases your home’s value. Many people nowadays do not go for a home with just one bathroom. They like to be able to have their own bathroom, as well as one for the guests.
If you’re selling a family home, many buyers are looking for separate bathrooms for themselves and their children. Why stop at adding another bathroom when you can add desirable features such as:
- Low-flow toilet
- Tankless water heater
- Water softener
- And more!

Depending on your home’s layout, the laundry room may be located in the garage or even the kitchen. Not many homeowners enjoy going up and down stairs carrying loads of laundry. And who really wants to share kitchen space with a washing machine?
One thing you can do to increase your home’s appeal is to create a laundry room. The good thing about this is it does not require much space, especially if the machines are stackable. If you have a spare space, closet space or other designated area, let our team install water pipes and drainage for your laundry room upgrade.
It is important to schedule drain maintenance when selling your home. It will eliminate stubborn clogs and help drains empty out quicker — which is what homebuyers look for. Many times property owners pour drain cleaners into their pipe systems in the hope that it will get the work done.
These products can work, but they don’t address the main issue with your plumbing. Many of these chemicals can even go as far as to damage your pipes. If you’re struggling with drain blockages, reach out to our team to schedule your drain service.
