Smartcool’s ECO3 is an energy efficiency retrofit product that can save up to 17% kWh energy used by the compressor in air conditioning, refrigeration and heat pump systems (HVAC-R). The ECO3 achieves savings using intelligent cycle optimization technology.

The ECO3 can improve energy efficiency for one or two compressor or stage systems including:

  • Packaged air conditioning systems – both residential and commercial
  • Small commercial refrigeration systems
  • Combined heat pump systems – both residential and commercial

Even on the most modern equipment with intelligent controls, or where other energy saving processes are already installed, Smartcool’s ECO3 provides energy efficiency gains.

The ECO3 works with any control system on these types of cooling units, including systems with any load profile, night set-back routine, non-demand related interruptions, demand limiting and demand response functionality.

The ECO3 interfaces with existing controls and equipment, and installation can be completed in an hour without any system interruption or impact on controlled space conditions.

Smartcool can provide additional functionality for even the most complex systems with the ESM range.

You like what you see, then you can purchase the equipment outright, and we’ll give you a discount.

We’ll discount 50% of the lease payments up to a maximum of 12 months off the purchase price, for example 12 months x $50 + gst/month = $600 + gst, so we’ll discount the purchase price by $300 + gst.

There are grants available for energy efficiency gains:

Northern Territory – up to 50% of the cost for efficiency improvements – maximum of $20,000.

We have access to a specialist lender that is experienced with energy efficiency installations.

3 and 5 years terms options can be geared to provide a cashflow positive position from day 1, plus you may be eligible for a government grant.

This is not a simple time clock, it is an intelligent optimisation with the ability to react and adapt its control, reactive to system performance, ensuring savings are achieved through seasonal change, system load and mechanical performance changes or alterations. Depending on the installation process and client goals the Smartcool™ unit also has the intelligence to know when there is a scenario where your system need full control and when there is no opportunity to provide savings, this may be in full load conditions or a possible mechanical issue.

The Smartcool™ unit can pause its optimisation function and allow the incumbent control system to operate the unit to achieve the desired conditions, once conditions are achieved the Smartcool™ unit can again start learning the operation and optimise the unit control accordingly. By having this intelligence integrated within the Smartcool™ unit, should for whatever reason there be an issue with the Smartcool™ unit, it will fail safe or isolate itself from the control loop and allow the system to operate with no Smartcool™ influence what so ever.
