Transforming your house into an energy-efficient Healthy Home™

Imagine you are in the process of buying a home in Westchester County, and are looking for a home that is energy-efficient, comfortable, and safe to live in.  How would you be able to tell if the home you are looking at meets your goals? Are you going to ask for a year’s worth of energy bills?

On the flip side, think about selling your home—what if there was a way to prove that your home had a low carbon footprint and low monthly energy bills, verified by a third party to guarantee accuracy? And what if that certification led to a higher resale value for your home?

These reasons are exactly why Healthy Home Energy & Consulting is a Pearl Certified contractor!

What Is Pearl Certification?

A home that is Pearl Certified has been evaluated on a point system — these are the areas in which a home can garner Pearl Certification points:

  • Air sealing & Insulation

  • Heating and Cooling

  • Baseload Improvements (water heaters and appliances)

  • Home Management (Smart thermostats and monitoring)

IRA Tax Credits and Savings

The 2022 Inflation Reduction Act, which allocates nearly $370 billion towards combating climate change has both rebates and tax credit available for homeowners. Within the IRA, various incentives have been incorporated to assist homeowners in enhancing the energy efficiency of their homes. Take advantage of these benefits today, and explore how much you can save by using the calculator below.

Please check with your tax advisor to confirm savings.

Working with a Pearl Certified Contractor

By working with a Pearl Certified contractor like Healthy Home Energy & Consulting, you can rest easy knowing the work we complete meets Pearl Certification standards. Plus, we can help you navigate the process of certifying your entire home to meet Pearl Silver, Pearl Gold, or Pearl Platinum certifications.  Even if your home does not reach silver certification, it can still qualify for Asset certification. This provides useful information about one or more high-performing features in the home and enables the owner to communicate the value of these features to future buyers.

We offer a number of services that fall under the umbrella of Pearl Certification, including:

And much more. Wondering if your upcoming home improvements fall under Pearl Certification? Just ask!

Increase the Value of Your Home

Once your Pearl Certification is complete, you will receive a “Residential Green and Energy Efficient Addendum” showcasing your home’s qualifications. Appraisers are legally required to include this addendum in your appraisal. 

Because Pearl Certification shows your home is of a certain pedigree of efficiency, recent studies have shown that this certification increases the resale value of a home by 5%—well worth the initial investment, especially considering you are likely still living in your comfortable and efficient home in the interim!
