All of the home services Ideal Energy offers, from heating and cooling system installation or repair to insulation and air sealing upgrades, work to reduce energy costs and save homeowners money on their utility bills.
But Ideal Energy is also a part of Pearl’s Contractor Advantage Network, which means the work we do on your house can also qualify your home for Pearl Certification, and we’ll handle the certification process as well!
What Is Pearl Certification?
Pearl Certification works to quantify the actual increase in the value of your home when you complete energy efficiency upgrade work. Any kind of home improvement will be attractive to prospective homebuyers, especially the kind that can be verified to have a beneficial impact on the home’s energy usage and overall comfort. According to a report put out by Zillow, 50% of homeowners are looking for an energy efficient home! Plus, with a Pearl Certification, you will automatically receive a completed “Residential Green and Energy Efficient Addendum” directly from the Appraisal Institute, which is legally required to be taken into account by all appraisers when appraising your home.
Additionally, a recent study found that Pearl certified homes sold for an average of 5% more than those without!
How Does a Home Get Pearl Certified?
Pearl qualification is determined on a point system. Your home earns points in four different categories based on its energy efficiency:
Building Shell (roof, walls, windows, insulation)
Heating and Cooling (HVAC system SEER, HVAC maintenance, ductwork)
Baseload (water heaters, electronics, pool, appliances)
Home Management (“smart” thermostats and devices)
Bonus points for homes that have gone through the Home Performance with ENERGY STAR program
So, when you upgrade your aging air conditioner with a new energy efficiency unit and replace your attic insulation, as this Phoenix homeowner did, with a Pearl Contractor Network Partner like Ideal Energy, your home could not only save big money on energy costs (in that particular example, the homeowner’s electricity bill was reduced by more than half!) but also earn a Pearl Silver, Pearl Gold, or Pearl Platinum certification.
As a Pearl Contractor, Ideal Energy can both perform the work and award certification upon completion, meaning there are no extra steps or additional companies to contract with. You get the actual benefit of Pearl certification from the same company you trust to improve your home comfort and lower your utility bills.
Lower Your Energy Usage and Increase Your Home’s Value with Ideal Energy
There are a number of home services Ideal Energy offers that can both lower your heating and cooling costs and earn you Pearl certification points, including:
New high efficiency HVAC installation
Smart and programmable thermostats
Variable speed pool pumps
