When you think of your home, don’t you think about comfort, safety and security? Not only that, but you want your home to be healthy and energy efficient. When your home is as energy efficient as possible, you will spend less money on keeping it running month to month. When purchasing a new home, you want to know that all of these things will be there for you once it is yours. This is where Pearl Gold Certification comes into place. Four Points Construction is here to explain a bit more about what it means to be Pearl Gold Certified and why every homeowner should want to get this.
What Does Pearl Gold Certified Mean?
More and more buyers in today’s market want to know that the home they are purchasing is a certified “green” home. This means that the house has been renovated or built to a higher standard that ensures the house is energy efficient. Pearl Gold Certification is a national firm that certifies a home is high performing. These homes will have ‘performance assets’ that guarantee the home is healthy, comfortable, safe and water and energy efficient.
Why Pearl Gold Certification Matters
There are many benefits that come from having your home Pearl Gold Certified. These are the main reasons you should work toward this goal:
– Increased Home Value: If your home is energy efficient, it will appraised for more than a home that isn’t. However, when you have a Pearl Gold Certification for your home, you will see the value of your home go up. Homeowners that sell their home after getting this certification will see that it will sell for up to 5% higher than a home that doesn’t have the certification.
– Increased Home Performance: Throughout the process of achieving Pearl Gold Certification, your home will receive a home energy audit in the process. This is helpful so that homeowners can see where their home is performing well and what changes they can still make to increase their home performance and efficiency even more.
– Pearl Certified Contractors: Pearl has partnered with contractors all over the country to build and remodel homes that meet Pearl’s high standards. These contractors are heavily vetted to ensure the way they build and remodel homes falls in line with the strict guidelines that are required to be Pearl Gold Certified. When you have a Pearl contractor handling the building or remodeling of your home, you know you have the best and your home is being built using only the highest standards.
