Ecovent, the maker of the intelligent home zoning system that delivers complete room-by-room climate control, announced that it has closed a $6.9 million Series A funding round led by Emerson Climate Technologies, a business segment of Emerson. The round includes participation from Tamarisc and Blue Fog Capital.
Ecovent started the year being named Automation Product of the Year at CES 2015, and has struck a chord with consumers, bringing in more than $1 million in pre-orders. Ecovent is transforming the home by giving consumers control over their comfort in every room. Ecovent’s advanced system of wireless vents and sensors intelligently diagnose the factors impacting room temperature and automatically adjust airflow into each room to achieve the perfectly desired temperature. With Ecovent, homeowners have the ability to control the temperature of each room individually through an app, saving energy and money by heating and cooling only the rooms that need conditioning instead of the entire home.
“We developed the Ecovent system to give people room-by-room temperature control in any home – automatically. It’s incredibly exciting to have the support of an industry titan like Emerson to help us bring Ecovent to a larger audience as we change the way homeowners experience comfort in their homes.” said Dipul Patel, CEO and co-founder of Ecovent.
For HVAC contractors and other industry professionals looking to deliver home climate control to their customers, Ecovent provides a complete, wireless zoning system that is more cost effective, less invasive and far easier to install than traditional zoning systems.
