Fraternal Clubs Care About Member's Health and Increasing Club Participation
Many Posts, Lodges and Clubs recognize that they have a smoking problem that is hurting member participation from non-smokers and can have a significant impact on food and bar sales in their club. This same smoking problem is also making it more difficult to recruit new members, or get existing member to use their facility. Smoking members are important to the Post or Lodge, so implementing a Non-Smoking Rule will drive business down even further.
Here is a two-page document called:

The right answer is to implement an aggressive smoke removal system with adequate capacity to dramatically reduce the smoke and odors from the club. The choices include Purifans or Noisy, Expensive Electrostatic Units. See the comparison of these two technologies and you will see Purifan win in many ways. Initial cost is much lower, energy costs are as much as 90% lower (8-10 amps versus Purifan's 1/2 amp electrical load), maintenance costs are as much lower, Purifan is much quieter, and Purifans come with a Lifetime Warranty if you use Purifan Filters, and Electrostatic Smoke Systems usually fail in 24 to 36 months needed extensive repairs or replacement of the unit.
That is why thousands of Fraternal Clubs all across America have replaced Electrostatic Units with Purifans. We have many testimonial letters from these Post Commanders and members who tell us what a fantastic improvement Purifans made in their club. Increased member participation in events like dances and "Steak Nights" produced a big boost in revenues. One Missouri Lodge reported Steak Night participated jumped over 200%.
Some clubs have had members ask "Did we go non-smoking?" after Purifans were installed because of the change in the way the facility smelled when they first walked in. There are many people who would love to be a member of a local fraternal club, but just will not join because of the smoking problem in the club. If you reduce this problem with Purifans you have a better chance of recruiting new family members.
The most important reason to install Purifans is your members and you employees deserve cleaner, healthier air when they are in your Club, Post or Lodge.

"The first thing that I noticed after the Purifan filters were installed was a clear sun beam coming through the window.Prior to having these filters, the only thing you could see was smoke and dust in the sunlight.With the Purifan filters, though, there was nothing in the air but the clear sun light.That told me the whole room was clear!"

"We have installed several Purifans in several areas of our club including the club room, bingo parlor, and restaurant areas.Before installing the Purifans in our club room, it was often so smoky that you couldn't see one side of the room from the other.With the Purifans, you can!Revenues have increased in our bingo parlor because of the Purifans - they have eliminated so much smoke in the area that everyone including non-smokers can now play bingo here too!"
