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
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!

Just looking for additional insulation in your attic or sealing up air leaks? Did you know that making certain changes to your home can result in unforeseen consequences? That is why we always recommend a full home energy audit by Home Energy Medics prior to implementing any efficiency measures. This will provide a full view of your house, it's systems and what can be done to improve ALL areas of your home. Best of all, we refund all or part of the audit cost when you choose to have us implement the solutions.
Home Energy Medics did a wonderful job on our house. We now have much better heating and cooling. The original audit was very revealing of heat leakage points throughout the house. I had no idea that recessed lighting "cans" could leak so much outside air into the house.
