Did you recently upgrade to a more energy efficient heating or air conditioning system? What if you could document the energy efficiency of your new HVAC system — and make your house more attractive to homebuyers when you choose to sell your home down the road? You would collect a higher return on those heating or cooling upgrades, and have the peace of mind that your home improvements are registered with a third-party certification program.
With Pearl Certification, you can document the energy saving improvements you’re making to your home, including upgrades to energy efficient heating and AC equipment.
What Is Pearl Certification?
Pearl Certification is a building-science based certification system that awards points to homes with energy efficient features. Features which qualify for points in the Pearl system include:
- Insulation in the attic and walls
- High performance windows
- Efficient heating and cooling systems
- Smart thermostats
- ENERGY STAR appliances
If you’re looking to get your home Pearl certified, upgrading your furnace, boiler, heat pump, and/or air conditioner is a great place to start. Homes with energy efficient heating and cooling equipment can qualify for Pearl Silver Certification. If your home has other energy saving features like upgraded insulation or a smart thermostat, it may even qualify for Pearl Gold or Platinum Certification!
