Creating Quality and Sustainable Homes
At Southern Development Homes we believe that Pearl Certification provides our homeowners with the peace of mind that they deserve in their new home.
- Transparency: In addition to the HERS score, Pearl Certification essentially provides a “full report card.” This means transparency and ease in seeing all the home’s high performing assets that make it healthy, safe, comfortable, energy and water efficient.
- Dynamic Certification: Pearl Certification allows homeowners to understand and track how their home performs for years to come, not just one day. This allows improvements to be made over time, thus maintaining and/or adding to the home’s value.
- Results: We exceed standards including a blower door test to ensure air tightness, a duct leakage test twice performed to ensure conditioned air is delivered where planned, thus providing lower utility bills.
