NEW YORK — The Beam Serenity IQS Central Vacuum System has earned a 2008 American Building Product Award from HOME Magazine. The Serenity IQS is among a dozen new building products chosen by the magazine for innovation, durability, and practicality.
“The central vac is an amazing convenience, and it also reduces allergens. Our readers are always looking for ways to improve indoor air quality,“ says Carolyn Weber, HOME’s senior building products editor, who presented the award at the International Builders Show Feb. 14.
The Serenity IQS delivers 640 air watts of cleaning power, up to 25 percent more than competitive systems, improving indoor air quality by completely removing more dirt and allergens from the living area. Beam also offers AlphaSan®, a permanent anti-microbial agent infused into the collection bucket that prevents formation and growth of mold.
A bright blue liquid crystal display (LCD) on the Serenity IQS power unit provides real-time information telling the homeowner how efficiently the system is performing, when to check the dirt level in the collection receptacle and when to contact a dealer for service. It also provides accurate time and temperature information.
The Beam Serenity IQS power unit and its companion Beam Q hose, electric power brush and cleaning tools offer the quietest central vacuum system on the market.
Beam Central Vacuum Systems are manufactured by Electrolux Central Vacuum Systems, the world’s leading producer and marketer of built-in central vacuums. For more information about Beam products or to locate a dealer, visit www.beam.com.
