eSmart is an energy reduction company with a clear focus on conservation, energy efficiency and sustainability. We aim to virtually eliminate energy bills by bringing to market products and solutions that solves and enhance day to day lives of our clients.
We are very passionate about delivering meaningful solution that truly help our clients cut the demand on fossil fuel and reduce their carbon emissions, living healthier more sustainable lives.
The first step in reducing energy cost and impacting work place behavioural change is energy measurement.
Clients implementing forms of energy measuring can expect a minimum of at lease 10-15% of savings on their energy bills. Energy monitoring is a quick way for client to get a handle on their energy bills, it's essential that commercial client understand where every pound is going and how much they can save. Our energy monitoring gives clients real time data, which allow them to make more tangible and profitable decisions. Because energy monitoring has a quick return on investment, it is viewed as a important part to energy efficiency.
Solar photovoltaic panels save home owners and business alike with the potential also generate an income.
The advances in solar PV technology means that full solar PV system are more efficient and provide greater output. With household clients savings hundreds of pounds per year and commercial clients saving in the thousands and ten thousands.
Stores electricity generated by solar panels during the day and makes it available to your home in the evening. This bridges the gap between peak solar and peak demand, allowing you to use your photons when you need them. Go zero Combine solar panels and batteries to power your home independently from the utility grid. A zero energy grid usage means that your home produces as much energy as it consumes, but is still connected to the utility grid for periods of high demand. Emergency backup In the event of a utility outage, you can power your entire home or select appliances with an uninterrupted supply of electricity.
One of the cheapest and most established of all the renewable energy technologies. Solar thermal is designed to work alongside the majority of heating systems and provides roughly half of your hot water requirements across the year and during the summer months they can contribute towards nearly all of your hot water needs. During the winter months you may need to top up the system with your primary heat source e.g a boiler.
With 75% plus in energy savings LEDs are the quickest way for domestic and commercial customer to save a lot of money that would necessarily go to the energy supplier. LEDs are now common place on the market with most companies and domestic client see a return of investment months instead of years. LEDs have very long life time working hours which means maintenance cost is very low compared to conventional fittings.
Infrared is a very efficient form of heating because it is heating you and not trying to heat the air - this will be warmed as a secondary effect. Also, once the panel reaches optimum temperature it will modulate on and off to maintain temperature, thus drawing on less power. However, as with any form of heating, running costs will vary depending on the construction of the building, the quality of insulation, and the natural heat retention properties of the building. A comparison between infrared heating with an electric convection panel heater Example: Heating a room of 12 square metres built by modern construction, having the heater on for 120 days at 8 hours a day, this roughly covers four months of winter. Using an electricity cost of 13 pence per unit.
If you are looking for no maintenance cost, more comfort, more room space, more control and like saving money on energy bills underfloor heating is for you. Unlike traditional convection heating systems which are often controlled by a single thermostat, a floor heating system provides the flexibility to control individual rooms via thermostats. These can be easily programmed to meet the demands of a particular area instead of wasting energy and money heating areas of the property which are used less often than others.
Replacing old G-rated boiler with a modern A-rated boiler with a full set of heating controls, the Energy Saving Trust estimates you'll save around £340 a year on your gas bill. This does not take into account the cost of installing a new boiler. New boilers combined with a full system clean means less maintenance cost. There are some cases where clients can even get government funding and grants to replace their old boilers with new ones. So don’t wait.
If your home was built from the 1990s onwards they will have wall insulation to keep the heat in, but if your house is older than that it may not have any wall insulation. If this is the case then you may be heating the outside air, instead of just heating your home. Most types of wall can be insulated in one way or another. If you have a typical house with cavity walls, you could save up to £155 per year in heating bills just from insulating the walls.
Heat rises, and in an uninsulated home, a quarter of heat is lost through the roof. Insulating your loft, attic or flat roof is a simple and effective way to reduce heat loss and reduce your heating bills. The average home could save as much as £240.00 on their heating bills by proper loft insulation.
Insulating your solid walls could cut your heating costs considerably, because solid walls let through twice as much heat as cavity walls do. The good news is they can be insulated. If your home was built before 1919, its external walls are probably solid rather than cavity walls. Cavity walls are made of two layers with a small gap or ‘cavity’ between them. Solid walls have no gap, so they let more heat through.
By replacing your old windows and doors to more energy efficient ones you will benefit with smaller energy bills, smaller carbon footprint. More comfortable home: energy-efficient glazing reduces heat loss through windows and means fewer draughts and cold spots. Peace and quiet: as well as keeping the heat in, energy efficient-windows insulate your home against external noise. Reduced condensation: energy-efficient glazing reduces condensation build-up on the inside of windows. The costs and savings for energy-efficient glazing will be different for each home and each window. A rated double glazing should last for 20 years or more.
Building integrated solar PV (BIPV) can be used in all parts of the building envelope, including façades, roofs and windows. The ratio of façade surface area to roof surface area increases with building height, in addition the available roof area is often reduced due to the installation of facilities which means that BIPV façades are of particular value in high density urban areas. BIPV offers the opportunity to make micro-renewable energy generation cost-competitive with conventional fossil fuels. By substituting conventional construction materials for solar PV modules the additional installed cost of the PV energy generation energy is only marginal. Combined with the multi-functional benefits afforded by PV glass and its opportunity to reduce energy consumption BIPV represents the future of building design. BMS : Greater energy efficiency and cost reduction is the main driver of building management systems. Some systems also have the dual benefit of acting as an automatic monitoring and targeting system, monitoring, measuring and analysing consumption to assist with carbon reporting and managing efficiency. This enables users to collate, analyse and transform this data into meaningful information, allowing them to monitor energy consumption, identify waste, and highlight areas for improvement and benchmark consumption against other similar buildings or organisations.
Here is a small sample of some of our corporate clients.
We live in a time unlike any other. With so many technological advancements at our fingertips, our lives are made easier, which is fortunate considering the fast-paced lives most of us lead. In recent years, great strides have been made in making homes a bit more “tech savvy.” This technology, in short, allows the homeowner to run his or her home while away through a remote, often on a Smartphone or iPad. In fact, these homes have been labelled as being “eSmart,” due to the fact that they can seemingly think on their own. This ability to “think,” also known as being an automated home, helps homeowners reduce energy cost, monitor the homes, increase security, more control from anywhere.

A building management system (BMS) or a (more recent terminology) building automation system (BAS) is a computer-based control system installed in buildings that controls and monitors the building’s mechanical and electrical equipment such as ventilation, lighting, power systems, fire systems, and security systems. A BMS consists of software and hardware; the software program, usually configured in a hierarchical manner, can be proprietary, using such protocols as C-Bus, Profibus, and so on.
