Smart Ecovent solves HVAC problems in your home

Tired of hot and cold spots in your home, and wasting energy in rooms you're not using? You can add zoning control to a standard forced air furnace with the Ecovent system.

Ecovent solves the problem of having rooms in homes that are too hot or too cold for households with central air heating and cooling, by allowing homeowners to control the temperature of each room individually. Ecovent’s wireless system of sensors and vents automatically directs airflow to rooms where hot or cool air is needed. In initial installs, Ecovent said it dropped the temperature difference between floors from 15°F to 2°F while running the heating and cooling system 30 percent less.

At the 2015 AHR Expo, Dipul Patel, CEO of Ecovent gives ProudGreenHome.com an exclusive review of the product.

Earlier in 2015, Ecovent, received the Automation Device of the Year award from the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA). Evaluated and showcased at the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, the Mark of Excellence Awards recognize the best in custom home electronics products, services, integration, and installed technology.

“We are thrilled to be named as the Automation Device of the Year by the Consumer Electronics Association,” Patel said. “To have the industry authority in consumer electronics recognize our product, and the technology and design that goes into it, is particularly gratifying because there is no other organization that has the deep knowledge and insight on the best products and services for the home and ultimately, the consumer.”

Patel said the Ecovent system extends the capabilities of all thermostats and existing central air systems by providing room-by-room temperature control and putting an end to heating and cooling unused rooms. Ecovent works by replacing standard floor, wall, and ceiling vents and installs in around 15 minutes per room without requiring construction, wiring, or programming, he said.

Patel said the system consists of three components:

• Climate sensors designed to fit any electrical outlet;

• Intelligent wireless vents that adjust to the real-time temperature; and

• An intuitive mobile app for iOS and Android platforms.

Ecovent works with existing central air systems by replacing floor, wall, or ceiling vents and installs in less than three hours without requiring construction, wiring, or programming, Patel said.
