The energy professionals at EcoSmart are trained and certified with a number of organizations and groups. These partnerships allow EcoSmart to provide a more professional and resourceful solar solution to its clients. EcoSmart has been recognized by or is part of the following organizations:
The partnerships solar installation companies make with tier-1 solar manufacturers say a lot about the service. Typically, tier-1 manufacturers will solely deal with installers that can be trusted, are reliable, and offer a high quality service. Most solar installation companies will partner with one, maybe two, solar panel producers. EcoSmart Home Services goes above and beyond in this area to provide its clients with a number of solar panel options to choose from, including the following:
Depending on what a client is looking for, EcoSmart Home Services will have the ideal solution when it comes to selecting the perfect solar panel.
The type of material a roof is made out of can defer a number of solar installation companies. Some roof types are difficult to work with, so competitors within the industry may turn down certain projects if they are uncomfortable with the make and design or a roof. That is not the case with EcoSmart Home Services. The professional installation team at EcoSmart can install solar on the following different types of roofs:
It should also be noted that in addition to offering traditional roof mounted installation, EcoSmart will also provide ground mounted installations where it makes more sense and will result in efficient energy production.
Many solar companies will claim to offer home energy audits as part of their services. These end up typically being solar consultations and more of a sales pitch than anything. That is not the case with EcoSmart Home Services.
For $149, homeowners will receive a complete assessment of the entire property noting money saving upgrades that will increase the efficiency of the house. EcoSmart Home Services can provide upgrades or improvements suggested in the home energy audit without involving any third-party operation.
Not all roofs are prepped and ready for a solar system to be installed. Since solar systems are designed to operate for 25–30 years, it is essentiall that the roof is in good enough shape to handle this lifespan. EcoSmart Home Services can provide repair and replacement services to clients even if they decide not to have a solar system installed.
Additionally, EcoSmart professionals will handle insulation needs, especially if noted in the home energy audit. The benefits of home insulation include decreased monthly utility costs, increased performance of the home’s HVAC system, and better air quality. While some solar installation companies offer roofing services, few also offer insulation solutions to improve the home’s overall function.
Having a solar system installed can cost thousands of dollars. While purchasing a solar system outright is the most fiscally responsible in terms of return on investment, it is not feasible for many homeowners looking to utilize renewable energy sources. As a result, most solar installation companies offer a number of alternative financing solutions including solar loans, leases, and power purchase agreements.
Clients that utilize EcoSmart Home Services will have to independently seek out financing options as these alternatives are heavily discouraged by EcoSmart. Instead EcoSmart tries to help clients utilize rebates, tax incentives, and other discounts instead of opting out for alternative financing.
Unfortunately for some interested solar clients, even these programs are not enough and solar financing is needed. With EcoSmart, these clients will have to independently reach out to Connecticut Green Bank for help.
Most full service energy and solar providers offer a local service, meaning these companies typically service one state or a select few cities or counties within a state. Through partnership or dealership structures, some of these full scale solar providers have found ways to expand service areas to include multiple states or regions throughout the country.
However, EcoSmart Home Services remains committed to providing its services in the state of Connecticut alone. It should also be noted that in addition to maintaining a strict service area, EcoSmart only services residential customers. Most solar companies also offer commercial solutions, but EcoSmart Home Services does not.
