The future is here.
We have the best solutions.
EcoSmart Solution is an innovative approach to real estate development that combines advanced technologies, partners, products, and construction methods to deliver zero energy capable homes at an affordable price. It’s a comprehensive solution made up of several components designed to create significant value for real estate developers and home builders, save natural resources, and dramatically reduce homeowners’ energy costs.
Comprehensive Solutions Grid
The heart of the EcoSmart program is the GeoGrid™, a geothermal district system that uses the earth below our feet to heat and cool the home. Geothermal heat pumps reduce energy consumption for space conditioning by up to 70%. Installed during the early phases of the development, the GeoGrid™ becomes part of the infrastructure, similar to the community-wide water, sewer, and electric utility lines.
Geothermal Heating & Cooling
A geothermal pump uses thermal energy stored in our GeoGrid™ to heat and cool the house using standard ducted ventilation. Most importantly, the entire heat pump unit is installed in the house, eliminating any noise pollution in outdoor living spaces! We’ve taken the technology one step further by using it to provide domestic hot water, further reducing energy consumption. EcoSmart is only using geothermal heat pumps built by leading manufacturers and they are all made in America.
Our EcoSmart Solution approved vendors engineer, install, and service the Solar PV systems that work with EcoSmart’s geothermal systems to create zero energy capable homes. Approved solar vendors install a high-quality Solar PV system, bringing utility-grade design and analysis to every homeowner. EcoSmart, through its EcoNOC™ energy monitoring and optimization platform, can measure both solar production and energy usage characteristics in every home.
Smart Thermostat & Home Automation
Using smart home technology, EcoSmart homes are designed to optimize energy use according to each homeowner’s schedule while safeguarding the home itself. The program works with your smart home, integrating more than 10,000 products.
Electric Vehicle charging & HOME BATTERY SOLUTIONs
The number of plug-in electric cars on North American roads grows every year. EcoSmart Solution stays ahead of the curve by pre-wiring all homes for EV chargers and offering EV chargers as an option.
Home battery solutions allow you to power your life with smart, clean, and safe home energy systems. The combination of demand reduction from geothermal and renewable solar energy generation allows you to power your home with cleaner energy.
Home Energy Rating System Certification
All homes within the EcoSmart program come with a HERS Certification. A certified and independent Home Energy Rater assesses the energy efficiency of each home, assigning it to a relative performance score. The lower the number, the more energy-efficient the home. The U.S. Department of Energy has determined that a standard new code-built home is awarded a rating of 100. For example, a home with a HERS Score of 70 is 30% more energy-efficient, and a home with a HERS rating of 50 is 50% more efficient. With EcoSmart, the HERS score is generally estimated to be lower than 25, which makes your homes among the most energy-efficient in the market.
How We Save
Less Taxing On The Environment & You
With EcoSmart, all homeowners are currently eligible for tax incentives available for both solar and geothermal systems. Homeowners can receive a tax credit for their home’s solar photovoltaic (PV system), as well as a tax credit on the geothermal equipment that is on the lot and in the home. This includes the ground-source heat pump (including installation) that drives the geothermal heating and cooling system in each home. The current federal Investment Tax Credit (ITC) allows homeowners to receive a dollar-for-dollar reduction in their income taxes for the value of their renewable energy systems, currently established at 26% of the system cost. Newly passed legislation will increase tax incentives beginning in 2023, making the EcoSmart Solution even more valuable.
EcoSmart Warranty and Service Program
Peace of mind comes standard as part of the EcoSmart program. We have negotiated some of the longest product warranties in the industry – from the geothermal heating and cooling system right down to the smart home components we provide.
