Central Vacuums are the Green Choice

As environmentally-conscious, healthier and more energy-efficient “green” lifestyles continue to gain interest and acceptance from consumers and builders, central vacuum systems, like VACUFLO®, are a more natural fit than ever for homes. National green building standards are taking notice by adding central vacuums to their list of approved products.

A central vacuum system vented to the outside earns homebuilders five points toward meeting the Indoor Environmental Quality portion of the new Green Building Standards developed by the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB), and approved by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI). According to the NAHB green standards, central vacuums are awarded more points than any other optional indoor environmental quality improvement for homes. In addition, the U.S. Green Building Council’s (USGBC) LEED for Homes program awards one certification point for a home equipped with a central vacuum system vented to the outside.

VACUFLO Central Vacuum Systems play a unique role in green homes by removing 100% of vacuumed dirt and dust, ensuring healthy indoor air and reducing the discomfort of allergy sufferers by more than 60%. The systems also offer the green benefits of a lifetime warranty so they won’t end up in landfills, no additional electricity required when using turbine powerheads for carpet and sounds-dampening design for a quiet living space.
