Mike Holmes partners with ECOHome™ for the Residential Market

Ted Konyi, CEO, Smartcool Systems Inc (TSX-V: SSC, OTCQB: SSCFF, FSE: R3W) today announced that Smartcool has entered into an agreement with Mike Holmes and The Holmes Group to partner and promote the Company’s ECOHome™ products internationally.


Mike Holmes, trusted Contractor and TV Host said "the ECOHome™ is what every homeowner needs in today’s world of ever-increasing electricity costs. Saving money while reducing carbon emissions is what I call ‘Making it Right’."

A trusted technology used in commercial buildings will now be available to homeowners. The Company’s push into the Residential market should begin shortly starting with a digital media campaign directed towards selected markets in the U.S. sunbelt states (Arizona, California, Texas, Nevada, Florida, etc.)

The campaign will feature the uncompromising Mike Holmes, star of such popular TV shows as "Holmes on Homes®", "Holmes Makes It Right", "Holmes Inspection" and "Holmes + Holmes". As a Brand Ambassador, Mike has agreed to introduce the Company’s ECOHome™ product to the millions of homeowners who live in these markets. Filming of the campaign videos took place in Toronto in February.

"Mike and his crew were great to work with," said Don Iannucci, Smartcool’s head of ECOHome™ initiative. "Mike is the consummate professional and is a big believer in energy efficient homes. He really gets the importance of the ECOHome™, and its potential saving of up to 40% to the consumer."

Mike Holmes has agreed to be featured on the ECOHome™ website which is to be launched when the test marketing begins. Customers can order their ECOHome™ directly from the website at a price of U.S. $499.00 which will include professional installation.
