Today’s environmentally conscious homeowners 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 comfort and boost home value.

Central Vacuum Systems have a unique role to play in “green” homes. By removing 100% of vacuumed dirt and dust, they ensure healthy indoor air and reduce the discomfort of allergy sufferers by more than 60%. Riccar Systems also offer these benefits:
