Just as Ecotelligent Homes has evolved over the years to meet our customers’ needs, so have our case studies. We strive to share relevant building science and energy efficiency information from some of our favorite home performance projects. We have included all of our archives here, just in case you want to walk down memory lane 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 share some of the success stories from our recent energy savings projects around Metro Detroit. Please drop us a line if you have any suggestions to further improve our case studies, we would love to hear from you!
