Get off the grid with renewable energy systems like geothermal heat pumps and solar panels. Ecotelligent Homes has helped Metro Detroiters implement energy efficiency and alternative energy improvements to get to a $0.00 energy bill…or better yet, a negative energy (aka passive income) bill! Ecotelligent Homes can help your family install both solar panels and geothermal heat pumps. Renewable energy for homes is a great way to preserve natural resources and give you peace of mind knowing your home is energy efficient.
ENERGY EFFICIENCY IMPROVEMENTS BEFORE RENEWABLE ENERGY SYSTEMS
To make the most of your investment in alternative energy, Ecotelligent Homes will provide you with information on energy conservation to improve the energy efficiency of your home prior to installing geothermal heating and cooling or solar energy. Start your project with a comprehensive home energy audit to ensure the most effective efficiency improvements are made prior to installing your renewable energy systems to fully capitalize on the alternative energy sources.
ARE RENEWABLES RIGHT FOR YOUR METRO DETROIT HOME?
We will assess your home’s existing insulation, heating, and cooling system, and surrounding landscape to recommend the best renewable energy option for your home. Solar panels can be a good choice for your Metro Detroit home, especially since the cool climate can help some photovoltaic cells to perform more efficiently. Geothermal heating and cooling can also be a good choice in Southeast Michigan, especially if your home does not have natural gas supplied by a local utility company.
