Ecotelligent Homes will recommend insulation improvements for your home to help improve the home’s energy efficiency. In addition, a properly insulated home will be more comfortable year-round.
Spray Foam Insulation — Closed cell spray foam insulation has expansion properties that allow it to be used for various applications in your Milford home. It is ideal for crawlspaces, basement rim joists, open walls and more. Ecotelligent uses spray foam that cures much quicker than other insulation materials, meaning you can enjoy your comfortable home faster.
Cellulose Insulation — Adding cellulose insulation to the attic can help eliminate uneven temperatures in your Milford home. Blown in cellulose insulation is also ideal for walls that currently have drywall covering them. Ecotelligent Homes uses Michigan-made cellulose insulation making it an eco-friendly choice as well as making your home more energy efficient.
Attic Insulation – If your home gets icicles and ice dams in the winter and has uneven temperatures throughout the year, your attic’s insulation might be lacking. Adding cellulose insulation and air sealing can prevent energy loss while improving the comfort and durability of your Milford home.
Crawlspace Insulation – If you are looking for crawlspace insulation in Milford, Ecotelligent can help. By installing closed cell spray foam insulation and vapor barriers your crawlspace can turn into a clean usable area. Crawlspace insulation can also help deter pests from your home.
Rim Joist Insulation — Rim joist insulation involves insulating the area between the outer edge of your Milford home’s floor and the foundation wall or band joist. These rim joists often contribute to heat loss in houses and cold floors, but by insulating this space, you can enhance the energy efficiency of your home.
Pole Barn Insulation — Pole barn insulation can be the solution for enabling the year-round use of your pole barn in Milford. Applying spray foam insulation to your pole barn can provide numerous benefits. Not only can it help regulate the temperature inside, making it more comfortable, but it may also contribute to reducing pest infestations, enhancing the overall enjoyment of your pole barn.
Air Sealing — A home energy audit can show where energy is escaping and where it needs to be sealed to improve the efficiency of your Milford home. Leaks can be found in many places including windows, doors and lights. Air sealing can improve your home’s indoor air quality as well.

Electrification — Electrification offers numerous advantages, such as reducing greenhouse gas emissions, enhancing the air quality within your home, and improving overall energy efficiency. By shifting from fossil fuels to electricity in your Milford home, you can achieve these benefits. Electrification prioritizes the utilization of renewable energy sources like solar power, as opposed to relying on non-renewable sources.
Being comfortable in your Milford home is important, but having a healthy home free of toxins is too. Ecotelligent Homes provides healthy home services to keep your home safe.
