The HTTPS secure communication does not affect SEO. Instead, it improves the website SEO. Google uses HTTPS to rank websites. Google wants websites accessed in search including secure websites. 

So using HTTPS or adding SSL certificate on your website will definitely provide a good signal for Google search and raise the website's ranking on search engines.

Yes it will affect the SEO. HTTPS is basically a secure communication form of HTTP. Every web Page has a URL on top bar. Google looks on these pages favorably. It does not index HTTPS pages only, however it additionally recognizes HTTPS as a ranking indicator. HTTPS is must faster than the HTTP, which can affect CTR (click-through rate). so yes, changing the HTTPS should positively impact on your overall ranking
