PulteGroup Answers Call for Healthier, Cleaner Homes with New In-Home Technology Features

Consumer-inspired concepts available in Pulte Homes nationwide
ATLANTA, March, 3 2021 – As the nation enters the second year of the pandemic, consumers’ sentiment regarding important features to have in their new home have changed. In response, national homebuilder PulteGroup, Inc. (NYSE: PHM), has announced several new healthy in-home technology features that are available in Pulte Homes communities across the country.

“A recent PulteGroup survey found that more than half of consumers (60%) say the most important attribute in how their home can support them is health and wellness,” said John Chadwick, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of PulteGroup. “As a direct result of the pandemic, consumers are seeking homes that will help them stay healthy, and Pulte Homes is leading the way.”

Buyers of new Pulte homes will be able to select several consumer-inspired, healthy in-home technology features, including:
  • Whole house water filtration system, which removes chemicals, sediment and other contaminants to deliver cleaner, safer water to every faucet in the house
  • Hospital-grade air filtration via premium MERV 16 HVAC filters, which capture and remove particles like dust, mold, bacteria, viruses and other contaminants to distribute cleaner, hospital-grade air throughout the entire home
  • Antimicrobial quartz countertops, which are non-porous and block bacteria, mold, and mildew from penetrating the surface
  • Touchless faucets, which reduce the spread of germs on one of the most handled spots in the home
These healthy technology features were identified by consumers as part of PulteGroup’s reimagining of homes to create healthy living concepts amid the COVID-19 environment. For example, a vast majority of consumers (87%) say they want healthy in-home technology and wellness features (e.g., the advanced air filtration and water purifying systems) included in their next home, and nearly three-quarters (72%) of all consumers are at least moderately concerned about the quality of air they breathe in their home due to the COVID-19 pandemic (24% of whom are “very concerned”).

Consumers are also willing to pay for these improvements, with nearly half (44%) willing to spend between $1,000 - $5,000 for these features.
