You would be hard pressed to find someone that would say they don’t love a clean house. Vacuuming is an important part of keeping a house clean. Consider installing a central vacuum system for improved air quality, reduced noise, less effort in cleaning and a much cleaner home to live in.
What is a Central Vacuum System?
A central vacuum system works similar to your central air conditioner. There are vents in every room that blows cool air into the rooms. The cool air comes from a central blower fan and condensing unit. Now consider a reversal in that flow. When a vacuum hose is attached to a suction vent in a room, the central air pulls dirt, dust and debris back to the collection point. This is almost always outside the home somewhere. PVC piping is used to run the system for each inlet port and back to the central unit. The inlet ports all branch off from a main line.
Advantages of a Central Vacuum System
Increased Suction Power – Central vacuum systems are a popular option due to the increased suction power they provide over portable vacuum cleaners. A typical portable vacuum cleaner uses an airflow between 60 and 90 cfm (cubic feet per minute). A central vacuum system has an airflow of up to 185 cfm! The reason there’s so much power is that the motor is much larger.
Ease of Use – Another benefit with central vacuum systems is the fact you don’t have to lug a heavy vacuum cleaner everywhere. You also don’t have to deal with a long cord, broken belts and changing dirty bags. All you have to do with a central vacuum system is taking a light hose from room to room. When the hose is plugged in one of the inlet ports, the vacuum automatically starts working and then stops when you pull the hose out.
Better Cleaning – Increased suction power means better cleaning because more dust and dander is removed. Portable vacuum bags can leak dust back into the room. This doesn’t happen with a central system resulting in a cleaner home, less allergenic home.
Quieter – These systems are also a lot quieter than portable cleaners because the motor is located outside the home and the unit insulated to dampen the sound. This makes noise almost non-existent.
Economical – Newer vacuum cleaners are getting more and more expensive, making central systems more economical. Sometimes a similar price can mean a huge increase in suction power and the value of your home can increase up to $2000 when you install a central vacuum system.
