Because of the improvements you installed, the 2nd floor temperature was so comfortable that the bedroom fan was not used for the summer of 2013. In the winter of 2013 when my body would tell me its cold my furnace will now come on in less then 60 seconds (before it would take several minutes to even turn on and even longer to heat up the house). My kitchen floor is not as cold as it had been before the basement insulation was added. Plus my heating and cooling bill has dropped on a monthly basis.
I was skeptical, but this turned out to be a really good experience. The initial audit was thorough, and they identified numerous issues…some of which I was not aware of. The guys showed up on time and were professional, clean and fast. The retest showed a 30% decrease in my air leakage, which was better than expected. I have noticed a significant decrease in drafting, and less variation in the temperature room to room and floor to floor. I think this was a great service. I wish I had done this three years ago when we bought the place.
They even went the extra step to pump up my flat tire with their air compressor, helping me out of an unexpected jam.
We would recommend Ecotelligent Homes to family and friends.

I scheduled a Home Energy Audit with Ecotelligent Homes after contacting several other companies and discussing their services and costs. Boy am I glad I chose you to do my audit, I was thoroughly impressed with the audit you did. Your crew showed up exactly to the minute scheduled, and was very professional. We began a preliminary tour of my house. No area of the house was overlooked, from the crawlspace to the attic. I offered to show Jamie pictures I had taken of the crawlspace, but no good, she suited-up and crawled right in and took her own pictures, very impressive! I am very confident every inch of my home was inspected and photos were taken too support what was found. You used quality testing equipment to analyze the performance of my mechanical systems, air handling systems, and air exchange. At one point during the audit a gas leak was discovered at my gas meter and you had to stop the audit prior to doing a blower door test. Not only did you make me aware of this, you also assisted me in contacting the gas company to come out and repair the leak. You rescheduled to come out to complete the audit the very next business day which I appreciated very much.”
During the audit the crew was very helpful and patient in explaining what they were doing and answering any questions I had. After the auditing was completed a detailed report was complied and presented to me, very comprehensive. Along with the report many suggestions and tips were given to me. In addition to the report you provided several proposals to address some of the deficiencies found.
I feel I got a great bargain and a complete and excellent energy audit of my home and would, and already have recommended your company to several of my friends. Your crew was exceptional, very professional, and friendly, a real pleasure to have had in my home.
Thank you very much, I am completely satisfied with the job you did and hope your company has much success. I would be more than happy to have any future customers contact me for a review of the job you did here.
Nick, Jamie and Martique were very professional and cordial. They performed a very detailed audit of my home with a high degree of technical skill and sensitivity to my family’s emotional connection to the house.
We’ve been paying astronomical utility bills. My husband and I have been disagreeing about why our bills are so high so we’ve not done anything to resolve the problem. There were 2 engineers that came to my home and checked all of our electric and gas systems connections (water heater, furnace, a/c). They went into our attic and inspected the insulation quality. Then they performed an air pressure flow test that showed exactly where all the loss of heat/cool air was going and why we were losing money. They were able to provide us with excellent solutions that were priced within our budget. This is a very legitimate company and I would highly recommend them.
They were very informative about where our energy leaks were and told us what improvements could be made. The deal for them to check the house was for $140 and then I had them come back and insulate one of the areas they mentioned wasn’t insulated well enough and I spent about $360. That work was in the end of May. I thought they were very good, they were thorough in checking and testing the energy and making further recommendations. If you want them to do further repairs to remedy those situations they will give you an estimate, complete the work and come back and do another energy check to see if it made a difference. They were very neat, they wore shoe covers, they were polite and very courteous.
The audit was amazingly informational. They took lots of detailed photo’s of the insulation in the attic and the basement, and wrote up a detailed report of all the energy issues inside my home. They then produced three options for moving forward with work. We decided on an attic sealing with insulation, gas leak fixes and rim joist insulation. They were on time and professional. They did all the work they said they would and they were very clean.. They then did an exit audit comparing my energy efficiency before and after and told me how much rebate I would receive. I would highly recommend them to anyone.
They were great! Very nice and took the time to walk around with me and answer my questions. Pointed out things I had no idea about. They went well beyond windows and wall insulation, which is what I thought they would point out.
Brian and Nick first performed a whole house energy audit, looking at everything from insulation levels, furnace efficiency and air quality and safety. The options were presented in a good, better, best fashion in order of most bang for the buck. We opted for Option #2 which offered some efficiency gains as well as addressing some of our comfort issues. The work involved a crew onsite for a couple of days applying spray insulation and minor duct work. Very professional crew, arrived on time and finished ahead of schedule. After the work was performed, Nick returned to validate (using the blower door test) that the improvements provided the expected efficiency gains. They also handled processing our Consumers Energy rebates. Very good experience!
They were very professional. Showed us exactly where we need to insulate to help warm up a very cold room over the garage. That’s the short story, we hope to bring them back to do the work before another winter.
The Ecotelligent team spent several hours going over every nook in the house, from basement to attic…these guys know their stuff and shared a great deal of tips suggestions, etc on how to make it better. In the end, I think we will be able to save hundreds of dollars on heating and cooling bills as we bring the house more inline with the 2000’s for efficiency.
Everything went great! I requested they show up a little early to be sure they were done in time, and they were at the house exactly at the time requested. The things they found were items my wife and I might have thought were needed. I would highly recommend them to anyone with a leaky or drafty house to help address your concerns.
That was excellent! We just moved into the home and it was very valuable for us to get this energy audit. Brian and Nick answered a lot of questions, they showed me how everything worked and walked me through everything too. Brain was extremely generous answering follow up questions from my husband. They were just superb.

The technicians were highly skilled and knowledgeable…they performed the audit in a professional and thorough manner…I would without hesitation recommend this company to anyone seeking such services.
Amanda and Nick arrived a few minutes early for our inspection…The quotes were reasonable and I couldn’t be happier….They were both very friendly, knowledgeable, and professional. I felt comfortable with them in my home from the first moment. I really didn’t feel intruded upon and they wore protection over their shoes…we’ve been in our home for 15 years and none of this has been addressed until now. I highly recommend them for the services that we had.

It was very easy to schedule an appointment with the company and the energy audit team came in on time. They methodically measured up my house and provided detailed explanations of any findings. Blower door test was quite an eye opener and pictures taken with infrared camera showed areas of air leakage. Amanda presented me with a list of options to improve my house energy efficiency. The team was very detail oriented and was able to provide me with the complete energy audit results while at my house. Her pricing was completive with other companies in the area.
Very comprehensive. I greatly appreciate the professionalism of Nick and Martique. Thank you for taking the time to answer all of our questions and explain clearly our options.
I thought Nick and Martique did a great job! They were both very personable, courteous and provided some great solutions.
Nick and Martique were very informative and professional. They answered all our questions and listened to our concerns. We will consider the options suggested when budgeting for home improvements.

The gentleman were on time, clean, well mannered and thorough throughout the house inspection, explanation of procedures and products. Punctual, informative, and neat. Insulation installers did a fantastic job with the difficulty they faced!
Brian and Nick were fantastic, knowledgeable, friendly and thorough. The report was detailed and broken out into logical options with a focus on value. One other thing to note: they were very kind and patient with our three year old son who followed them around asking questions the entire time…maybe not a testament to the quality of the energy audit, which was very high quality, but certainly an indication of the quality of the company and its employees. Thank you for the great experience.

Their representatives showed up on time, explained exactly what they would be doing and were very professional. The report they provided was very thorough and broken down into three possible solutions depending on how much we wanted to spend.
