ECOS Paints

We love odorless*, health-focused ECOS paints, stains, and varnishes because they have no hidden ingredients. Ingredients determine a paint’s toxicity, and the odor it produces when drying. The harsh fumes from conventional paints come from their ingredients. Because of this, we carefully select the ingredients for our Zero VOC* paints to make sure there are no harsh fumes or conventional paint odor. They have great colors too. “At ECOS, we’re passionate about making exquisite colors. We import ultra-refined Zero VOC* pigments from Europe that let us create an almost boundless color palette, without the VOC and chemical issues common in conventional pigments. Choosing colors requires context. Our carefully curated Nature’s Palette draws on color stories from eight distinct North American regions. Our Classic Palette offers a wide breadth of color, with over 1,200 variations from every major color category.”

Free Color Chips
Seeing is believing. Truly knowing how a color looks is so important that we’ll send you free color chips so you can be certain you’ve chosen a color you love. To help you finalize your choice, we also offer 2 ounce color paint samples you can try out at home.

Why Does ECOS Paints Have Better Coverage?
We use the highest quality ingredients, and we don’t fill the can with cheap, harmful solvents that evaporate into the air. The result? Paint with a much higher solids content that spreads farther. What you put on the wall stays on the wall.
How Do I Benefit From Better Coverage? Quite simply, you save money. For example, with 1.5 times more coverage, painting a room that requires 3 gallons of a conventional paint will only take 2 gallons of ECOS paint. You’re saving 33%!

Duct leakage is a big deal. It’s one of the top three energy wasters in most homes (air leakage and cable TV set-top boxes being the other two). Researchers at Lawrence Berkeley National Lab found that duct systems leak on average about 10% of the supply air they move and 12% of the return air. In far more homes than you might suspect, the main culprit is a disconnected duct, as shown in the photo at right, but a typical duct system has a lot of other leaks, too. But another problem occurs with the duct leakage to cause even more wasted energy. Read More
