Charged for Cash: Why Upgrading Electrical Appliances Increases Your Home’s Value | Kelly Electric

There is no better feeling you get when you buy your first house. Your home almost becomes part of your family, and you put a lot of time, love, and energy into it. But, when the time comes to sell it, you want to make sure that all the time and effort you put into it is reflected in the price. Kelly Electric knows that the best way to get the full value of your house lies in its electrical work, and we will inform you on how to maximize that value.
Electrical appliances have become the top commodity for domestic upgrades. Electrical appliances can determine how well your house runs. Therefore, making sure that they work properly is imperative. It is often overlooked, but replacing your light switches and outlets is a good place to start. Light switches are designed to not just keep the circuits in place, but to also make sure nothing gets in. Circuits can be dangerous and are not meant to be touched or tampered without the proper knowledge. Eventually, the old switches get damaged from simple wear and tear. It may sound subtle, but these can offer a lot of yield when it comes to your home’s value.
The condition of your current generator also has a factor with your home’s overall value. At Kelly Electric, we are an authorized dealer of Generac Automatic Generators and have factory trained technicians for automatic generator installation. Specifically, the Generac Automatic Home Standby Air-Cooled Generator can back up everything circuit based in most homes through a smart automatic transfer switch. The generator automatically turns on after 10 seconds whenever your home loses power and can even turn on when you aren’t home. They also use a weatherproof enclosure and can work through all bad weather. The value that a generator can add to your home depends on the generator, but Generac Automatic Generators can add a substantial amount of value to any home, and we highly recommend it.
Lastly, having a high-grade electrical panel and circuit breaker can add a tremendous amount of value to your home. When your house goes up for sale, an inspector will look at your home’s features to make sure they are up to par. One of the first items they will check is your electrical panel and circuit breaker. According to the International Association of Certified Home Inspectors, they will record insufficient clearance, aluminum branch wiring, sharp-tips, damaged wires, improperly sized circuit breakers, and more. It’s smart to have this inspected routinely, and obviously before you choose to put it up for sale. A faulty circuit breaker can spell disaster for the entire inspection.
