Pearl provides Home Energy Score Partner services, including Assessor training, mentoring, and onboarding, as well as remote quality assurance. Pearl is also the only national Sponsor of the Home Performance with ENERGY STAR program. Pearl helps programs facilitate the homeowner engagement, contractor engagement, and project improvement processes.
Pearl Certification is a “living certification” intended to be updated by the homeowner over time after a home is built, maintained, and/or improved. The Pearl scoring system assigns points to home features based on how much they contribute to the home’s performance. The more points a feature earns, the more it contributes to comfort, indoor air quality, and energy efficiency.
The categories evaluated for high-performing features that earn points include Building Shell (roof, walls, windows, foundation), Heating & Cooling (furnace, air conditioner, ductwork), Baseload (water heaters, appliances, electronics), and Home Management (smart thermostats, information dashboards, energy management plans).
Pearl also recognizes homes that have Renewable Energy and Storage systems (solar panels, inverters, batteries, electric vehicle chargers), are All-Electric, and/or homes that have earned labels or scores when built and/or when improved.
