Louisville, OH – As environmentally-conscious, healthier and more energy-efficient “green” lifestyles continue to gain interest, central vacuum systems, like VACUFLO® and Dirt Devil® from H-P Products (H-P), are a more natural fit than ever for homeowners. National green building standards are taking notice by adding central vacuums to their list of approved products.

Homeowners looking to add green products to their homes need to consider central vacuums. VACUFLO and Dirt Devil® 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 allergies by more than 60%. These central vacuums transport vacuumed particles through behind-the-wall tubing to an area away from living space with no re-circulation of particles.

In addition, so central vacuums don’t end up in landfills, H-P’s systems offer the green benefits of a lifetime warranty. There’s also no additional electricity required when using turbine powerheads for cleaning carpet, and the systems have a sound-dampening design for a quieter living space.

Central vacuums are the green choice, even for homebuilders. When vented to the outside, central vacuums earn builders 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 and Dirt Devil® Central Vacuum Systems offer a homeowner a “green” lifestyle and can be installed in both new and existing homes.
