Now is the Time for Integrators to Consider Central Vacuums

No business is safe from the downturn in the economy, especially those that rely on the residential building industry. Integrators should use the downturn to their advantage by diversifying their product lines with central vacuums.

Atlanta, GA; CEDIA 2009; Booth #1559 - No business is safe from the downturn in the economy, especially those that rely on the residential building industry. While some businesses may retreat and 'wait it out,' others are using the downturn to their advantage by diversifying their product lines. For the Custom Integrator, it's a good time to consider products like Dirt Devil® Central Vacuum Systems.

Any good marketer will tell you that those companies who continue to promote and add to their products and services during a downturn are the ones poised for the most growth and opportunity when the recovery begins. This is an opportunity for companies to break away from their competition and promote their unique value proposition. It is always beneficial to have something new to share with your customers.

Products like Dirt Devil® Central Vacuum Systems are the types of products consumers want. Central vacs not only provide whole -house cleaning convenience, but are also a green product helping to promote better indoor air quality. This combination makes a central vacuum system in high -demand from the consumer.

Integrators should take advantage of this slowdown by learning about central vacuum systems. Dirt Devil® Central Vacuum Systems are consumer -friendly 'wow' products that customers will love once they have one. Since most homes can be easily retrofitted with central vacuum systems, Integrators can utilize their existing customer database to market the product.

Central vacuums aren't rocket science, but do require a little knowledge to get started. H -P Products, manufacturer of the Dirt Devil® Central Vacuum Systems offers a full -scale training program to help Integrators get started. H -P provides everything from inventory information, sales training, marketing support, in -field installation training and a 24/7 online knowledge base and ordering center so Integrators can easily launch their Dirt Devil® Central Vacuum program.

Central vacuum systems are good for the integrator's bottom line as well. Not many custom products boast a 50% profit margin. In addition, central vacuums are a green product, qualifying for 5 points in the NAHB Green Standard and 1 point in the LEED for Homes standard.
