Our experienced team will assess your home’s requirements and recommend the most suitable insulation solution to enhance comfort and energy efficiency. Based on the needs of your Royal Oak home, we can suggest one of the following insulation options.
Spray Foam Insulation — Ecotelligent Homes specializes in the installation of closed cell spray foam insulation for Royal Oak Homes. With its high R-value, the insulation effectively retains warmth during winter and keeps the space cool during the summer months. Spray foam insulation is particularly beneficial for crawlspaces, basement rim joists, and knee walls.
Cellulose Insulation — For attics in Royal Oak, cellulose insulation proves to be an excellent choice. At Ecotelligent, we utilize locally made cellulose insulation to properly insulate an attic and ensure a more comfortable and eco-friendly home.
Crawlspace Insulation — Having an uninsulated crawlspace not only contributes to discomfort in your Royal Oak home but also wastes potentially usable space. Spray foam insulation for your crawlspace efficiently seals and insulates the area, providing improved comfort and maximizing the potential of your home.
Attic Insulation — When an attic is inadequately insulated or lacks insulation altogether, it can result in a chilly living space and the formation of ice dams during winter, making your home uncomfortable. Ecotelligent Homes recommends cellulose insulation for attics in Royal Oak homes. Not only does it effectively insulate your attic, but it also boasts a lower environmental impact compared to other insulation materials.
Rim Joist Insulation — If you’re experiencing drafty or cold floors in your Royal Oak home, it may be worth considering rim joist insulation. Ecotelligent Homes suggests closed cell spray foam insulation combined with thorough air sealing to effectively eliminate drafts. By addressing the rim joists, you can significantly improve the comfort and energy efficiency of your home year-round.
Air Sealing — At Ecotelligent Homes, we identify sources of drafts in Royal Oak homes and effectively eliminate them through air sealing techniques. Our team can target common areas prone to air leakage such as window trims, basement rim joists and recessed lighting. By addressing these areas, we can significantly improve energy efficiency, enhance comfort and eliminate drafts.

This transformative process involves powering devices and systems that previously depended on non-renewable energy with electricity.

Prolonged exposure to indoor pollutants may cause physical discomfort or even serious health problems. Hence, it is of utmost importance to carry out indoor air quality testing to pinpoint and resolve any potential issues promptly.
