CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va., April 07, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Pearl Certification’s Green Door, a free app that guides homeowners on how to improve their home’s energy efficiency, now offers an expanded contractor search that includes Air Conditioning Contractors of America (ACCA) members and Quality Assured (QA) accredited contractors.

Green Door offers many tools and resources for homeowners, including the ability to search for contractors in the elite Pearl Network. The esteemed members of the Pearl Network represent the top 5% of entrepreneurs in the United States. No other app gives homeowners the peace of mind that Green Door does.

With such strict qualifications, the Pearl network does not include approved contractors in all markets. In an effort to always provide owners with quality contractors in this scenario, Pearl Certification has partnered with the ACCA to recommend its highly qualified contractors.

When contacting ACCA members through Green Door, homeowners can expect contractors who invest in top-notch education and uphold ACCA’s rigorous quality standards. ACCA QA accredited contractors go one step further with an annual audit and periodic review of their work to prove the proper execution of their installations. QA contractors can also verify their work with an ENERGY STAR Verified HVAC Installation (ESVI) certificate that reinforces the integrity of the owner’s Pearl certification package.

“A quality installation is key to delivering the comfort and efficiency homeowners expect, but it’s often hard to justify the price that comes with getting the job done right,” said Sean Robertson, vice president membership and business operations of ACCA. “Pearl Certification does a great job helping quality contractors move conversations with customers from price to value, and we’re excited to bring more of our members into the Green Door app.”

Donovan Mosley, Pearl Certification Product Manager for Green Door, said, “Listing ACCA members and QA-accredited contractors in Green Door’s ‘Find Professionals’ feature was an easy decision. ACCA members receive top-notch training, demonstrate industry best practices, and employ quality standards for every job. Enhanced “Find Professionals” with ACCA Contractors Supports Pearl’s Mission to Introduce Elite Professionals to Homeowners Looking for Approved Work, Great Service and In-Depth Expertise . »

In addition to finding contractors for home improvement projects, homeowners can use Green Door to log their home’s energy-efficient attributes. Based on the information provided by homeowners, Green Door recommends projects to improve the performance of their home and even suggests which upgrades to focus on. Homeowners can also track their home’s scheduled maintenance, upload key records to My Documents and obtain Pearl Certification from a Pearl Network contractor and download the corresponding Assessment Addendum.

Research indicates that homes marketed with Pearl certification, signifying their level of sustainable features, sell on average at a premium of 5.15%. Green Door can even connect users with Pearl Network real estate agents to truly support owners through their journey with their residence.

Admission to the Pearl Network confirms contractors’ commitment to high quality service standards and excellent business practices through third-party certification. Pearl Network members also have access to a dedicated success team, sales training, marketing tools, and conference and industry discounts.
