The New Zealand building industry is now concentrating on building homes within a “Healthy Home” concept and the new Beam by Electrolux Alliance Central Vacuum System offers a positive solution to creating a real Healthy Home.

Most people know air pollution can damage their health, but don’t know indoor air pollution is one of the most common problems addressed by allergists.

With better construction methods, ceiling and underfloor insulation and aluminium double glazing, houses are now becoming almost “airtight” and draft free. The fitting of DV systems, dehumidifiers, automatic insect sprayers, central heating and heat pumps to new houses means the “air quality” inside the home is vulnerable to a multitude of inside pollution influences like cooking fumes, aerosol sprays (a huge variety) cleaning compounds (another huge variety) pet hair and dander and of course the humble vacuum cleaner.

Older homes have all the same problems as mentioned above, but they also have dampness, mould and in-ground dust and dirt coming from floors, walls and ceilings to contend with.

Allergies and asthma in NZ is increasing – effecting 1in 4 children and 1 in 7 adults which equates to 20% of the population of NZ who suffer from breathing difficulties from asthma or allergies. Beam by Electrolux Central Vacuum Systems are the only system clinically proven by independent tests to relieve those allergy symptoms.

Why install a Central Vacuum system?

Independent studies show indoor air pollution has been proven to be one of the main causes for the increase of lung disease, respiratory and tract infections, asthma and allergies.

Independent tests also have recommended a Beam by Electrolux Central Vacuum System to be fitted to all new homes as it is the only system that has been tested and proven to remove 100% of contacted dirt, dust, mites and allergens from the floor, as well as contaminates from the air.  A Beam system carries any contaminants away from the living areas (usually to a garage or basement area) and provides a measurable relief for allergy sufferers from nasal, eye and sleep symptoms and provides for a cleaner, healthier home environment.

The new Beam Alliance rangewon 2 international + x awards for design and operationand are now 18% more powerful, are quieter, yet use 30% less power consumpyion.

The patented ‘Gortex®’ self-cleaning filter removes 98% of contaminates @.3 microns (human hair is 27 microns) for a cleaner healthier home environment.

The patented Quiet Sound™ insulation ensures a quieter operation and the new HE power system gives longer motor life with less maintenance required.

Beam is the only Central Vacuum system that has been independently tested and proven to be superior to any other system available in the marketplace.
