Ecotelligent Homes has worked with homeowners across Metro Detroit to professionally insulate attics and improve the comfort and energy efficiency of their homes. We are a licensed insulation contractor with a building science background. Our in-house crews will install blown cellulose insulation to meet ENERGY STAR’s standards for Southeast Michigan.
We Treat Your Attic as a Whole System
At Ecotelligent Homes, we don’t just simply blow cellulose insulation into your attic. We evaluate your attic as a system and install improvements to address the following areas:
Health & safety
Addressing comfort and energy efficiency typically requires adding cellulose insulation and air sealing with expanding foam. Our team follows the Department of Energy’s guidelines for air sealing and insulation to ensure that the latest industry standards are applied to your home. To improve health and safety and durability, we control moisture sources in your attic by directly venting bath fans and promoting attic ventilation with baffles. Improving your attic as a whole system safeguards against durability or air quality issues like mold, and ensures your family can enjoy a comfortable and energy efficient home for years to come.
Will Cellulose Insulation Eliminate the Ice Dams on My Metro Detroit Home?
Michigan winters can wreak havoc on your roof and cause water damage on your ceilings. Whether you have a bungalow in Berkley, a colonial in Bloomfield Hills, or a ranch in Livonia, icicles and ice dams are signs of energy loss. Cellulose blown in insulation alone will not prevent ice dams, but Ecotelligent Homes’ holistic approach to air sealing and insulating your attic is your proven solution to ice dams.
I Know I Need Attic Insulation...Why Would I Need an Energy Audit?
It’s great that you have identified the need to air seal and insulate your attic and understand that it can help to improve the comfort of your home. We recommend you consider starting your home improvement project with a comprehensive home energy audit for the following reasons:
Optimize your Energy Efficiency Investment
Understand how all of the systems of your home contribute to your overall comfort. For example, installing cellulose insulation in your attic along with spray foam insulation in your basement can help to create even temperatures between the different levels of your home.
Measure the Fresh Air in Your Home
Our team uses an industry-standard blower door test to ensure safe air sealing and the elimination of drafts don't negatively impacting your home’s indoor air quality.
