Ecotelligent Homes is proud to announce that our company is now a certified Pearl Advantage Contractor. We are also the first contractor in Metro Detroit to receive this certification. Pearl Advantage looks for quality contractors with professional training, great customer reviews, and superior quality control to certify your home. Pearl chooses only the top contractors in the home performance business who want to further demonstrate the value of improving the comfort and energy efficiency of your home.
What is Pearl Certification?
Pearl is a nationwide independent 3rd party company that works to showcase and certifies homes that have implemented home performance updates. Elite contractors, like Ecotelligent Homes, carry out the high-quality installation and give you a certificate to show that your home is Pearl certified. This documentation will help when it comes time to sell or refinance your home. The documentation can be given to realtors and appraisers to factor in the energy-efficient improvements you’ve made into your home’s value. On average, Pearl certified homes sell for 5% more.
What energy efficiency improvements can be certified?
High-performance assets that make your home more healthy, comfortable and energy efficient can be certified. Capture the value of your investment by having your Pearl Advantage Contractor certify improvements like:
- Heating and Cooling
- Solar Photovoltaic
Does the real estate market really value energy efficiency?
Many homeowners and buyers are looking beyond aesthetics to prioritize home features that make the home comfortable and healthy and save on utility bills. According to Zillow, nearly half of homebuyers now seek energy efficient features when they’re shopping for homes.
Pearl’s national registry is the trusted source for investment-grade information on a home’s performance features used by real estate agents, appraisers, and financial institutions. Pearl’s certification system is based on building science. Their partners not only include BPI, and ENERGY STAR, but also the National Association of Realtors and the Appraisal Institute. Ecotelligent Homes is proud to be the first contractor in Metro Detroit to be accepted into the Pearl Network and offer our clients the value for our energy efficiency improvements.
