The environmentally conscious homeowners of today are demanding and getting improved energy efficiency, better indoor air quality and smarter use of building materials. These "green" building initiatives not only protect the environment, but also improve the comfort of homeowners and boost their home value.
Element Central Vacuums play a unique role in green homes by removing virtually all vacuumed dirt, dust, debris and allergens, with no recirculation of particles back into the living area and ensure healthy indoor air quality and reduce the discomfort of allergy sufferers by more than 60%.
Unlike portable vacuums, which are often discarded after only a few years, Element Central Vacuum Systems provide reliable, worry-free cleaning for decades and the only thing discarded is dust. Element's Limited Lifetime Warranty ensures it!
Element also helps to fight noise pollution by featuring sound dampening designs that keep homes peacefully quiet. Optional air-driven turbines that operate solely on the power of the central vacuum are available, with no additional electricity needed.
Organizations like Home Innovation Research Lab's National Green Building Standard® (NGBS), Earth Advantage® and the US Green Building Council with its LEED® (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Rating System are providing standards and certification to ensure that best practices are followed across the country.
