If you’re looking to improve your home’s comfort, health, and efficiency with upgrades that will also boost your home’s resale value, working with a Pearl certified contractor is vital. Fortunately, Pearl certification makes finding Home Energy Medics, the right contractor, simple!

What Is Pearl Certification?

Pearl is dedicated to promoting healthier, more comfortable, and more energy efficient homes across the country. It is a building science-based certification system that recognizes higher quality, higher performing homes.

Homes that are Pearl certified adhere to strict standards and have high performing assets such as:

  • Attic and wall insulation

  • Efficient heating and cooling systems

  • ENERGY STAR appliances

  • Smart thermostats

  • Energy saving windows and doors

Pearl certification doesn’t just apply to homes; contractors may become Pearl certified as well. Home performance contractors who adhere to Pearl’s higher standards may become Pearl Advantage Contractors within Pearl’s Advantage Network.

Why Work with a Pearl Advantage Contractor?

Pearl chooses a very select number of home performance contractors in each city to become part of its Advantage Network, and in our area, Home Energy Medics is that contractor! When you work with us, you’ll receive valuable advice on how to improve your home, along with high quality work and outstanding customer service.

All Pearl Advantage Contractors:

  • Have special training and qualifications

  • Offer expert advice on improving homes

  • Make homes more comfortable, healthy, and efficient

  • Consistently receive positive reviews from customers

  • Increase home resale value by 3% to 8% on average

An average home in Northern VA, for example, costs approximately $650,000 in our service area.  With typical upgrades, a home retrofitted by Home Energy Medics and then PEARL Certified would be worth between $19,000 and $52,000 more than a home in the same area that isn't certified!

Looking for Duct Sealing? Did you know...

There is a substantial amount of energy loss when your HVAC system works overtime to make up for leaks and gaps in your ductwork. In addition to increased energy bills, the unnecessary strain on your system can significantly shorten its lifespan or lead to costly repairs. Air duct leaks can also create indoor air quality issues by allowing dust, allergens, and other pollutants easy access to the air circulating through your home. Having properly sealed ducts keeps these pollutants out of the air you breathe and balances temperatures, leaving your home feeling more comfortable.


Scott and the team did soundproofing work on what will be our child's nursery -- we live in a condo and could hear almost everything from the neighbors. The entire team was polite, kind, and most importantly, really effective.
