At Ecotelligent Homes, we can enhance your home’s comfort by installing insulation in different areas of your home. We offer various types of insulation that can be added based on your specific requirements. Below are the insulation options we provide for you to explore:
Spray Foam Insulation — Ecotelligent Homes professionally installs closed cell spray foam insulation in a wide variety of applications to stop energy wasting drafts. It is important to have a trained contractor install this form of insulation because it can be dangerous if installed incorrectly. Spray foam insulation is primarily used in open areas of your home, such as your wall before drywall is installed, or basement rim joists.
Cellulose Insulation — Northville residents know how brutal the winters and summers can be in Michigan. Cellulose insulation is a reliable way to combat intense weather while keeping your home comfortable. The cellulose insulation Ecotelligent uses is made in Michigan from recycled newspapers, making it environmentally friendly.
Attic Insulation — Taking preventative measures like attic insulation will not only keep your Northville house safe but also will help stabilize your home’s temperature. Attic insulation will help you avoid ice dams and icicles while also preventing heat loss and unnecessary air infiltration in your home.
Crawlspace Insulation — Northville home inspectors agree that crawlspace insulation is the best way to clean up your crawlspace while improving the air quality of your home. Closed cell spray foam insulation in your Northville crawlspace will improve your home’s energy efficiency and enhance your comfort.
Rim Joist Insulation — Rim joist insulation is important for your Northville home because this area is a common source of heat loss and air infiltration in homes. Without proper rim joist insulation, the cold air from outside can infiltrate through the rim joist and into the living space causing discomfort and higher energy bills.
Pole Barn Insulation — Pole barn insulation can help improve energy efficiency by preventing heat loss in the winter and heat gain in the summer. Using spray foam insulation in your Northville pole barn is also beneficial to reduce noise, moisture control and increased durability.
Air Sealing — Using several industry-leading products like single part and two-part spray foam along with high-performance caulk, we can help eliminate unwanted drafts in your Northville home. By reducing the amount of air that leaks into or out of your home, your home will stay at a more consistent temperature and be more comfortable.
Heating & Cooling
With the unpredictable nature of Michigan’s weather, it is wise to have heating and cooling systems in place that will promote comfortable temperatures year-round. Ecotelligent Homes can help you select the right energy efficient heating and cooling for your Northville home.
Air Source Heat Pump — Consider an air source heat pump for your home’s heating and cooling needs in Northville.

For extreme cold temperatures, air source heat pumps can be paired with high-efficiency furnaces for optimal results.
