CEDIA Booth #209 - September 3 - 7, 2003 - With whole -house integration on the rise, central vacuum systems are becoming an amenity that homeowners are now opting for as frequently as satellite dishes, security systems and home theaters. Dirt Devil®, manufactured by H -P Products, has set the industry standard for a high -quality, high -performance central vacuum system that provides powerful operation with sustained cleaning power.

"We offer our builders one stop shopping for all their integrated products and this keeps us a step above the competition", comments Jeff Hoover, CEDIA President and installer of Dirt Devil® Platinum Force® central vacuum systems. "We saw value in adding a central vacuum system to our product line and Dirt Devil® is a very recognized name. Most of the products we offer are highly recognized brand names which enhances our sales as well as our builders' homes", Hoover adds.

The Dirt Devil® Platinum Force® Filtered Cyclonic Central Vacuum System ensures optimum cleaning performance by combining cyclonic cleaning action with a high -performance filter. This bagless central vacuum system provides convenient whole -house cleaning without re -circulating dirt, dust and vacuum odors into the home. As a result, the upholstery and carpets are cleaned more thoroughly while the air remains free from dust and allergens.

The system works by transporting dirt, debris and dust particles through a simple network of tubing that runs through the walls to the power unit. The in -wall tubing is easily installed during construction or can be added to an existing home in less than one day without any structural modifications needed. The bagless Filtered Cyclonic technology gives these units the ability to maintain maximum cleaning power without any loss of airflow. The large, six -gallon dirt collection canister has a rounded bottom edge for easy handling.

Dirt Devil® offers a number of units to meet the specific needs of most homes, condominiums and apartments. A full line of accessories and powerheads are available to assist in cleaning all carpet types, rugs, hard -floor surfaces, upholstery, ceiling fans, blinds, draperies, light fixtures, lamp shades, car interiors, keyboards, hard -to -reach places, stairs and more.

The Dirt Devil® Platinum Force® central vacuum systems are available exclusively through the Alliance of Value Added Distributors (AVAD), a partnership of 12 regionally based distributors from across the United States. AVAD distributors offer great brand names and outstanding service to their customers. The Alliance provides a nationwide dealer network to vendors who are interested in reaching the rapidly growing custom installation/system integrator market. "Buying the Dirt Devil ® Central Vacuum from AVAD makes sense. They offer us everything we need in one stop shopping," Hoover concludes.
