Farmington Hills Cape Cod

Overview

The owners of a Farmington Hills Cape Cod were concerned with keeping the upstairs comfortable.

Problem

The Ecotelligent Homes team conducted an energy audit that included a blower door test and infrared camera. During our audit, we found that the recently added roof venting was allowing air to move behind the insulation causing comfort issues. The furnace in the home was also old and oversized contributing to the uncomfortable environment.

Approach

Ecotelligent Homes removed the old fiberglass insulation which was dirty from filtering the air that moved through it. Next, our team installed baffles to ensure proper ventilation. Spray foam insulation was used to seal and insulate from the knee wall to the baffles. The baffles and insulation allow the attic to vent correctly. Also, a new Carrier high efficiency furnace was installed to use less energy and reach all parts of the home.

Outcome

The overall comfort level of the upstairs area and the rest of the home significantly improved providing even temperatures throughout.
