With the H-P Products central vacuum system being installed today, we thought it would be the perfect opportunity to shed some light on the power of a central vacuum system.
Americans spend 80% of their time indoors, and in these tough economic times, that number is set to rise. With so much time being spent inside, maintaining a healthy home is imperative. What is the most effective way to do this? By installing a central vacuum system.
Have you ever thought that the “just vacuumed smell” you get when you turn your upright off signified that your home was clean? Think again. That smell is actually dust and dirt particles that are left circulating in the air. Those particles can stay in the air for up to one hour after vacuuming, often triggering allergy symptoms or even asthma attacks. With a central vacuum 100% of dirt and debris is removed from the home…100%.
The EPA lists Indoor Air Quality as the fourth largest environmental threat in our country. Since we spend most of our time indoors, isn’t this something we need to concentrate on improving? Studies have proven that installing a central vacuum system can reduce allergy suffers symptoms by an amazing 61%. Designed to remove all dirt and debris from a house, central vacuum systems leaves nothing but a healthy indoor environment. All vacuumed material is carried through a series of tubing in the walls to a canister, usually located in the basement or crawl space, away from the home’s living environment and can harness up to five times the suction power of a traditional upright. That is sure to get your home super clean and ensure the health of you and your family is not compromised by harmful indoor air quality.
Despite popular belief, central vacuum systems, like VACUFLO® and Dirt Devil®, by H-P Products, are cost effective, and relatively quick to install. An average home can be installed in about one day for a whole lot less than a homeowner will spend on traditional upright vacuums in their lifetime. Plus, having a central vacuum can increase your home’s value.
Because central vacuums have been tested and proven that they can significantly improve indoor air quality, an installation can garner points in both the LEED and NAHB Green programs.
