HEALTH & ENVIRONMENT

It is important to create a clean and healthy home environment for your family. Many people take their home’s air for granted and assume it is safe, clean, and breathable. The problem is that indoor air can be up to 100 times more polluted than outdoor air! Several reasons for this increase include today’s more tightly sealed housing construction, synthetic building materials and furnishings, and chemically formulated household products.

Most people spend 90% of their time indoors. Poor indoor air quality can affect health, safety and comfort – especially in children and the elderly. With powerful motors and no recirculation of particles, our central vacuums eliminate 100% of vacuumed dirt, dust and allergens, creating a healthier home with cleaner indoor air.

CENTRAL VACUUM HEALTH FAQ

How is a Central Vacuum System healthier than a standard portable vacuum?

By design, a portable vacuum’s motor is right in front of you as you vacuum – exhausting dust particles, dander, allergens and other fine particulates back into your home. A Central Vacuum System from Vacuflo Edmonton, however, typically has its power unit located outside of the main living space (e.g., basement or garage). Most systems exhaust outside of the home, so none of these unhealthy particulates recirculate into the home.

Do Filtered Cyclonic units have to be vented outside?

Most people do vent to the outside, although it is not necessary since the dual filtration process assures that vacuum dust and debris are contained within the system.

How does a Central Vacuum System help create a healthy home?

With 3-5 times the suction and power of uprights, Vacuflo Central Vacuum Systems capture 100% of all vacuumed dirt, dust, odours, and allergens. Traditional vacuums spread these particles and allergens around your home and recirculate them into the air you breathe. The power of Vacuflo Central Vacuums eliminates microscopic particles and allergens for a cleaner, healthier interior environment.

What are the health benefits a homeowner can expect?

According to the EPA, central vacuums vented outdoors can help decrease exposure to dust mites and other contaminants. A University of California-Davis School of Medicine study has proven that central vacuum systems can improve indoor air quality and reduce allergy symptoms by as much as 61%.

Is indoor air quality really that important?

Yes. According to the American Lung Association, people spend 90% of their time indoors. Today’s homes are tightly sealed for energy efficiency, reducing air exchange and trapping indoor air pollutants caused by building materials, furnishings and household cleaners. Vacuflo Central Vacuums remove 100% of vacuumed dirt, dust, odours and allergens, keeping pollutants from recirculating in the home.

CENTRAL VACUUMS ARE THE GREEN CHOICE

Today’s environmentally conscious homeowners are demanding and getting improved energy efficiency, better indoor air quality and smarter use of building materials. These “green” building initiatives protect the environment, improve comfort, and boost home value.

VACUFLO Central Vacuum Systems have a unique role in “green” homes. By removing 100% of vacuumed dirt and dust, they ensure healthy indoor air and reduce the discomfort of allergy sufferers by more than 60%. Our Central Vacuum Systems also offer these benefits:

No additional electricity
VACUFLO offers turbine-powered powerheads. Turbines run off the airflow of your Central Vacuum System, so they require no additional electricity to operate.

Improved Indoor Air Quality

Our Central Vacuum Systems can help improve indoor air quality by capturing 100% of all vacuumed dirt, dust and allergens with no recirculation of particles back into the living area.

Unlike uprights, which are often discarded after only a few years, our Central Vacuum Systems provide worry-free cleaning for decades. A Limited Lifetime Warranty ensures this.

Say NO to Noise Pollution

Our systems feature sound-dampening designs that keep homes peacefully quiet.

Central Vacuum Systems that are exhausted to the outside earn 1 point in the LEED-H standard and 5 points in the NAHB Green Building Standard.

FAQs
  • Improved Air Quality. Central vacuum systems are up to five times more potent than standard vacuums and effectively remove dust, animal dander, pollen, mites, and other allergy triggers from carpet and hardwood.
  • A larger canister means less frequent emptying. The central vacuum system has a larger canister than regular home vacuums, so you don’t need to empty them as often, reducing your exposure to dust. Most canisters are in the basement or garage, eliminating dust settling into your main living spaces.

Yes! A Central Vacuum System has a powerful motor that picks up particles and stores them in a canister outside the main living space. This separation results in better indoor air quality.

Central Vacuum Systems have much more powerful suction than standard upright vacuums, making them a great choice for pet owners with shedding pets.
