Blog

Just as Ecotelligent Homes has evolved over the years to meet our customers’ needs, so has our blog.  We strive to share relevant building science and energy efficiency information along with fun tips and community news.  We have included all of our archives here, just in case you want to walk down memory lane for some energy conservation tips or are looking for an oldie but a goody case study (we hope you get a kick out of them).


We enjoy staying connected with our customers and are happy to have one of the longest running newsletters from an energy efficiency contractor in Metro Detroit.  Please drop us a line if you have any suggestions to further improve our newsletter, we would love to hear from you!

The Gift of Gratitude: As 2016 comes to a close, we'd like to take a moment to reflect on the year.
November is upon us, which means many of you will soon be taking on the task of hosting Thanksgiving!
Baffles are a critical component to our attic insulation process that provides multiple benefits to a difficult construction aspect. Baffles are foam, plastic, or cardboard chutes that, when installed properly, can provide a channel for air to flow from your exterior soffit vents up into your attic space.
As you begin to make the switch from shorts to sweaters, flip flops to flannel, and tanks to turtlenecks, you're going to want to start thinking about getting your home winter ready as well. Cold rooms, high energy bills, drafty areas, and uneven temperatures often go hand-in-hand with cooler temperatures. Is your home as winter ready as your wardrobe?

If you feel like you're always under the weather, it may actually be your home that's making you sick. According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the air you breathe indoors is 2-5 times more polluted than outdoor air!
