Dave & Christiane had recently downsized to a unique Ann Arbor ranch home. They wanted to improve the efficiency and indoor air quality of their new home to enjoy a comfortable place with family and friends.
During a comprehensive energy audit, the Ecotelligent staff identified several areas for insulation improvement. Some portions of the attic had as little as 3 inches of insulation. Our team also found a lack of ventilation that was affecting the home’s indoor air quality.
Ecotelligent Homes removed the poor-quality original insulation in the attic, and air sealed and insulated the attic floor. Before insulating the attic, we worked with our electricians to wire in a new ENERGY STAR bath fan. Once the electricians completed the wiring, our team ensured proper exhaust venting out of the attic space. We also installed closed cell spray foam in the basement rim joist to keep temperatures even on both levels of the home.
Dave & Christiane’s home now meets ENERGY STAR R-value insulation recommendations for their attic and rim joists. Due to these improvements, they are now enjoying a comfortable and healthy home.
