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 Manitoba, however, typically has its power unit located outside of the main house (i.e. basement or garage) and 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 really 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, odors 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 cleansers. Vacuflo Central Vacuums remove 100% of vacuumed dirt, dust, odors and allergens, keeping pollutants from recirculating in the home.
