Strategic Technology Partners

EcoSmart delivers a streamlined platform, through our network of strategic partnerships in technology, consumer brands, and more, for builders to craft affordable, net-zero energy capable homes. To ensure that the EcoSmart program is second-to-none, we’ve joined forces with the world’s leading industries in technology and energy efficiency. These strategic partners have all been carefully chosen for reliability, performance, and cost-effectiveness.

SOLAR PV

Our EcoSmart Solution approved-vendor installs, engineers, and services the innovative 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. Approved vendors are capable of ensuring quality and monitoring all solar energy production and home energy consumption to ensure quality control and customer satisfaction.

COMMUNITY GEOGRID

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.

HOME ENERGY RATING SYSTEM CERTIFICATION

All homes within the ESS 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 ESS, the HERS score is generally estimated to be lower than 25 which makes your homes among the most energy-efficient in your market.

SMART THERMOSTAT

A smart thermostat can help you reduce energy costs and keep your home comfortable year-round. Smart thermostats use sensors to tell when you’re away and can learn your daily schedule and even use local weather information to make energy-saving temperature changes automatically.

HOME AUTOMATION

Using smart home technology, products are designed to optimize energy use according to each homeowner’s schedule while safeguarding their home itself, integrating more than 10,000 products. 

ENERGY EFFICIENT HOME APPLIANCES

High-efficiency refrigerators and dishwashers are engineered for unsurpassed performance and ENERGY STAR compliance. These outstanding appliances consistently earn top rankings for quiet operation and resourcefulness, making it a pleasure to cook at home.

GEOTHERMAL HEATING AND COOLING 

A geothermal pump uses thermal energy stored in our GeoGrid™ to heat and cool the house using standard ducted ventilation. Importantly, the entire heat pump unit is installed in the house and eliminates any noise pollution in the outdoor living spaces! And we’ve taken the technology one step further by using it to provide domestic hot water, further reducing energy consumption. ESS is only using geothermal heat pumps built by leading manufacturers and they are all Made in America.

ELECTRIC VEHICLE CHARGING

The number of plug-in electric cars on North American roads grows every year, EcoSmart stays ahead of the curve by offering EV Charging station as an optional built-in for all ESS homes — charged with the power of the sun, combined with Solar PV.
