Home Performance Services
Ecotelligent Homes may recommend one or more of their services after conducting an energy audit to your Plymouth home. The goal behind our services is to create a comfortable home with an even temperature throughout while also lowering your energy bill.

Ecotelligent Homes can increase your home’s comfort by installing insulation throughout your home. There are a variety of insulation types we can add depending on your home’s needs. Learn more about insulation options available below:
Spray Foam Insulation — Ecotelligent Homes recommend closed cell spray foam insulation for Plymouth area residents. Closed cell spray foam insulation benefits include high thermal resistance and the capability to resist water and eliminate drafts. The foam is versatile and used in areas such as crawlspaces, knee walls, and bonus rooms.
Cellulose Insulation — The cellulose insulation used by Ecotelligent Homes is made in Michigan and has a much lower environmental impact than other similar insulators. We primarily use cellulose insulation in Plymouth attics to help fix uneven temperatures throughout homes and help prevent icicles and ice dams during the winter months.
Attic Insulation — If you are looking to improve the efficiency of your home and create a comfortable living environment, making sure your attic insulation is sufficient is a great place to start. Ecotelligent Homes can install cellulose insulation in your attic and pair it with air sealing to help your Plymouth home have an even temperature throughout.
Crawlspace Insulation — Ecotelligent recommends closed cell spray foam insulation for crawlspaces in Plymouth homes to help regulate the temperature of your floors and home. In addition to a more comfortable environment, insulating your crawlspace can help eliminate a smelly or dirty crawlspace while creating a usable space for storage.
Rim Joist Insulation — If you suffer from drafty or cold floors in your Plymouth home, you might benefit from rim joist insulation. Using closed cell spray foam insulation and air sealing can eliminate drafts, keeping your Plymouth home warm in the winter and cool in the summer.
Pole Barn Insulation — If you spend less time in your Plymouth pole barn during the winter months, pole barn insulation might be your solution. Ecotelligent Homes can assist by insulating your pole barn to help it be more comfortable in the winter. The insulation can also benefit you during the summer months too.
Air Sealing — Air sealing allows the systems in your home to function at their best. Ecotelligent Homes will determine the cause of the drafts in your home and make improvements to eliminate drafts to make your Plymouth home more comfortable. Common areas that require air sealing include recessed lighting, window trim, and basement rim joists.
Heating & Cooling
Ecotelligent Homes is the expert in heating and cooling for Plymouth Township homeowners. Enjoy a comfortable home all year round with our help!
High-Efficiency Air Conditioners — Plymouth's summer heat can be unbearable at times, which is why having a reliable high-efficiency air conditioning system keeps your home cool and comfortable during the longest days of the year. The Ecotelligent Homes team can help select and install top-quality air conditioning systems that provide excellent cooling and improved energy efficiency.
High-Efficiency Furnaces — As colder weather approaches in Plymouth, keeping your home warm and cozy becomes a top priority. At Ecotelligent, we can guide you to the right high-efficiency furnace to ensure your home has adequate heat during the winter months. We consider the cost of energy sources and energy ratings of furnaces to provide efficient solutions.
Air Source Heat Pump — Consider an air source heat pump for your heating and cooling needs in Plymouth. Air source heat pumps move warmer air from outside to inside during winter and from inside to outside in the summer. They pair well with high-efficiency furnaces for extremely cold temperatures too.
Duct Sealing — Leaky ductwork is a common issue in Plymouth Township homes, which can lead to energy waste and poor indoor air quality. Duct sealing involves identifying and sealing leaks in the home's duct system to prevent air loss, reduce energy consumption, and improve indoor comfort and building durability.
Increase the efficiency of your home with renewable energy solutions. Ecotelligent Homes can evaluate your Plymouth home's orientation and landscape to suggest the most fitting alternative energy system for your family's lifestyle.
Geothermal Heat Pumps — Geothermal heat pump systems use consistent ground temperatures to keep homes comfortable while saving energy. Ecotelligent Homes suggests making efficiency improvements such as duct sealing and insulation to your Plymouth home prior to geothermal installation to optimize the investment.
Solar — Ecotelligent Homes can assist in achieving zero net energy or getting your home off the grid by combining energy efficiency upgrades with a high-quality solar energy system. We can help you incorporate solar energy by installing solar panels for your Plymouth home that operate efficiently during all of Michigan’s seasons.
Electrification — Electrification is the process of replacing fossil fuel-based energy sources with electricity. It involves using electricity from renewable sources like solar to power devices and systems that were previously powered by non-renewable energy sources.
Ecotelligent Homes knows the importance of a comfortable home, but you should also feel safe. Due to this, we provide healthy home services to ensure you are breathing clean air at home.
Indoor Air Quality Testing — Common household irritants can contribute to poor air quality in your Plymouth home. Symptoms of long-term exposure to indoor pollutants can range from physical discomfort to serious health problems, which is why it is important to complete indoor air quality testing.
Asbestos Abatement — Ecotelligent Homes provides licensed and certified asbestos abatement services for vermiculite insulation, boiler pipe insulation, ductwork tape and fire barriers, furnace and chimney fire barriers, and ceiling tiles. Asbestos can remain airborne for up to 72 hours, so it's important to use licensed contractors for its removal. Our team uses a third-party contractor to test air quality after the removal.
Mold Remediation — Ecotelligent Homes can kill and remove mold from your home. More importantly, we will find what is causing your Plymouth home to have a moisture build up that leads to mold. We then create and implement a solution to stop the moisture problem and prevent the mold from regrowing.
