Margaret Rankin has lived in her home in Metro Detroit for over two decades. She loves her house, but on hot summer days, the temperature in her bedroom can soar to 90 degrees. Other rooms are uncomfortably cold in winter. This year, she finally decided to do something about it. Rankin talked to her sister, who pursued an energy retrofit on her home in 2020.
“When I asked if she would do it again, she said, ‘Absolutely—you should see how much lower my bills are,’” says Rankin.
She called Ecotelligent Homes, the contractor that had recently completed energy upgrades on her sister’s home, to learn what steps she could take.
