Building a New Home? Want the Air As Clean As Possible? Consider a Central Vacuum!

Do you or a family member suffers from allergies?  Did you want to make sure the air in your home is as clean as possible?  Then you’ll want to consider installing a central vacuum system while your new home is under construction.

According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency, using a central vacuum system vented to the outdoors can significantly reduce dust mites, pollens, animal dander and other irritants in your home. The University of California Davis School of Medicine asserts that allergy sufferers’ symptoms can be improved up to 61% when using a central vacuum system.

Due to the positive impacts on home air quality, central vacuum systems are a popular feature in new home construction. The vacuum inlets are strategically installed based on your home’s design for efficiency and ease of use. A great feature to this system is an automatic dustpan that can be installed in your kitchen or bathrooms allowing you to simply sweep unwanted dirt, food, hair or debris away.

In addition, the central vac canister, which is located in your garage, has an assessable inlet enabling you to quickly and effectively clean out your vehicles as well.

Now you might be wondering – would I have to lug around a heavy hose to connect to the central vacuum system?  The answer is NO!  You don’t have to drag around a long hose from room to room or find a place to store it – the optional Hide-A-Hose System, solves that problem easily. You simply pull out the amount of hose you need, connect your tools, and begin vacuuming. When finished, the suction from the central vacuum power unit retracts the hose for you, saving time and making your vacuuming more convenient. Hose lengths are customized according to your floor size and retract so they are hidden within the wall, attic or crawl space.

If this easy, convenient system that keeps your home’s floors and air as clean as possible sounds right for you, ask your builder about Secur-Tek and Dirt DevilCentral Vacuums with Hide-A-Hose Retractable Hose Systems.

Win the War Against Dirt and Debris with a Central Vacuum System

VroomYou see it in the corners of each room of your house, under the sofa, along the baseboards, on the mantle, on the book shelf, floating through the air, glistening in the ray of sunlight that streams in through the front window.

It can be dust, dust mites, fur, hairballs, pet dander, pollen or any combination of it all.

It makes you sweep every day, even twice a day. It is the reason you pull out the vacuum cleaner and drag it and its cord around from room to room every day; and yet, after all the sweeping and the vacuuming, you look around and wonder why it looks like you barely did a thing.

Give yourself an advantage over all those allergens and unwanted foreign objects that constantly entrench themselves in your home.

Consider the installation of a central vacuum system. A central vacuum system allows you to move freely about your home, carrying only a lightweight hose and brush unit. Inlets located around your home transfer debris through tubing set within the walls to a receptacle usually located outside of your home in the garage. This set-up makes it easier for you to clean your house and, unlike traditional vacuum cleaners that recirculate air, keeps the dirt, dust, and dander out of your living space.

Breathe cleaner air more often. Trip over cords less often. Enjoy the rays of sunlight minus the floating objects.

Automation! 3 Ways to Simplify Home and Office with Secur-Tek

Control4When talking about home or business electronic systems, the terms integration or automation may not be especially familiar to everyone.  Secur-Tek of Apex, NC specializes in building system upgrades.  Whether it’s a home, office building or business, Secur-Tek can install and maintain everything from alarm systems to surround sound.  We can set up computer networking, optimize wireless capabilities throughout a building, and even install central vacuum systems to make it easier to keep every room clean and improve the air you breathe!  Technological upgrades are a way to improve the conveniences in any building, and Control 4 automation is the ultimate system upgrade!

What are the benefits of Control 4 automation?

Here are three examples of how automation can make home and office functions easier:

  • Operate appliances remotely from any room.  Turning functions on and off from anywhere in the room or building makes life so much easier.  For example, when having guests over, blinds can be lowered or raised, music can be changed easily and lights can be dimmed, all from the touch of a button on a tablet or cell phone.
  • Total control of electronic functions.  An easy to use application on a cell phone can keep tabs on all electronics.  Having control of the on/off functions of appliances is also energy efficient.  Knowing which appliances are running, and which are off, at all times will optimize the power bill.  This is also a great function to remotely monitor the functions of a Secur-Tek alarm system in a home or office!
  • No more remotes to keep up with!  When everything is synced to a tablet or cell phone app, worrying about finding the remote to the air conditioner is no more a chore!  All home and office functions are controlled by a single unit with a total automation configuration.

Considering these wonderful benefits, what home or business wouldn’t appreciate total electronic integration?  Secur-Tek can configure and maintain Control 4 automation for any size building, from apartments to businesses or office buildings.  Don’t be left in the dark ages!  Call or contact Secur-Tek today to learn more about how automation works, and get an assessment of the possibilities for your home or business!
