I personally know the inventor of the RamAir system, and I am the one who encouraged him to develop his invention so it could be marketed globally. When I first saw this invention, I really tried hard to find the fatal flaws, but the more I looked at it and saw how it worked, it was one of those too good to be true moments. - See more at: http://ramair.co/blogs/news/11080409-a-testimonial-from-john-carter-owner-interlink-supply#sthash.G9eDOK8q.dpuf
Here is what I found:
1. There are almost no mechanical parts to fail.
2. It could be used with a carpet cleaning machine (truck-mount or portable), or virtually any other vacuum system.
3. It is inexpensive when compared to potential sales revenue.
4. Both the customer and cleaning technician can view the cleaning results during the cleaning process, and get excited about it in the same way that happens with restorative carpet cleaning, which is a significant advantage over all other duct cleaning systems with which you cannot watch the results like you can with the RamAir system.
5. It is a very simple system to use, yet very effective.
6. Parts that do eventually wear out can be very easily replaced at a very low cost.
7. The contractor that provides this service for their customers will generate at least equal to, but in most cases a greater hourly revenue than with carpet, furniture, tile, window and virtually any other type of professional cleaning.
Make no mistake ladies and gentlemen, the RamAir system is simply amazing and will revolutionize the on-location HVAC cleaning opportunities for the cleaning and restoration contractor industry.
Before starting in distribution in 1993, I was in the carpet cleaning business for close to 20 years. During that time, I used all sorts of methods to clean ducts and most of them were very inefficient. I have also sold and rented many different types of duct cleaning equipment since becoming a distributor in 1993, and my opinion of those systems is about the same as what I experienced as a carpet cleaner.
To be honest, I had pretty much given up on the idea of selling or renting a system that a carpet cleaner could use to provide duct cleaning services to their customers because I felt that the ones that were the best options were still very inefficient and expensive.
I was really having a hard time encouraging my customers to offer this service to their customers when I knew how inefficient and overpriced the systems were that I had to offer. However, I still knew that there was a tremendous need for this type of service that carpet cleaners could provide, utilizing their existing carpet cleaning machines.
I believe that the widespread implementation of the RamAir system into the cleaning and restorative industry will significantly expand consumer awareness about how much dirt and debris resides in their duct systems, and will expand service opportunities for both the cleaning contractor and the duct cleaning specialist.
If you believe this statement is puffery, then I challenge you to purchase one of these units and see the results for yourself. You will be surprised at how easy it is to operate and how well it works.
