Children with Golden RetrieverVacuums can be one of the biggest threats to healthy indoor air. All the air that comes into a vacuum must come out somewhere! With portable vacuums that air is exhausted into your living area. You can often smell it or see the particles streaming in the sunlight.

Is Your Vacuum Harming Your Indoor Air?

Portable vacuums are designed with filters to capture germs and allergens, but many particles will still end up exhausted back into your living space. These particles can aggravate allergies and cause an increase in respiratory issues. Element® Central Vacuums are designed to exhaust vacuumed air outside your living area, leaving only clean air for you and your family to breathe. Get rid of recirculated particles for good - virtually all of the vacuumed dust, bacteria, allergens and viruses are removed into the system. Your Element Central Vacuum will improve your indoor air quality, creating a healthier environment for your family.
