Why should I buy a central vacuum?
Central vacuums offer a simple, cost-effective way to keep your home clean. It comes with unbeatable advantages over traditional, portable upright or canister vacuums, such as greater suction power, less noise, and a significantly improved ease of use.
With the venting of air outside the house, a central vacuum means that there’ll be no stale smell or dust in your air after vacuuming, making your home a more pleasant place to live in. They’re a low maintenance, economical way to keep your house clean and fresh.
The size of the motor in a portable vacuum is limited by the fact that it has to be dragged around the house behind its user. This means it is restricted by portability requirements. However, a centra vacuum’s motor remains in one place. For this reason, it can be much larger. This means that a central vacuum’s motor can be up to five times as powerful as a portable vacuum’s. That’s why when you use a central vacuum system, you get stronger airflow, better suction, and more thorough and efficient cleaning.
Lightweight, crush-proof hose
A central vacuum is a complete system that comes with a lightweight hose and array of cleaning attachments. This versatility makes cleaning your house far quicker and more flexible. All you have to do is simply insert the hose and any attachments of your choice into one of the vacuum inlets located around the house, and you get to enjoy a light and easy time spent vacuuming.
Long-lasting and durable
Experience convenience guaranteed to stand the test of time, built right into the house itself. A central vacuum system is easy to maintain and pays you back for your time spent doing so. With proper care, a central vacuuming system can last for thirty or forty years. This long-lasting nature makes it a far more cost-effective investment than regular portable vacuums, which may need multiple replacements during the same time.
Because the motor of a central vacuum is tucked out of sight, often in the garage, basement, or utility room, far from the living area, central vacuums are far quieter than their traditional, portable counterparts. With a central vacuum system, you’ll no longer have to stop conversations or pause the telephone or your music when you clean. It also makes it a better solution for parents worried about waking up sleeping children, or working professionals who may not have time to clean during the day. With a central vacuuming system, the only noise you’ll hear is the air flowing through the hose – if you can hear it at all. This means you can keep music playing while you vacuum, making a bothersome chore a far more light-hearted, pleasurable experience.
Easy to use
With a light hose and no heavy body, a central vacuum system is much easier to use than a portable vacuum. Move around the house and get into all those little, tough-to-reach nooks and crannies with ease. No more dragging a heavy vacuum cleaner up and down the stairs behind you. You can vacuum for more extended periods and be less tired.
Safer for you and the house
Without a heavy upright or canister vacuum behind you and no cables to worry about, central vacuums are a much safer option for you, your family, and your house. Don’t worry about stubbing your toes, tripping over cables, or accidentally swinging the machine into your walls or valuable furniture. A central vacuum system offers better cleaning with less trouble.
Beneficial for asthma and allergy suffers
Scientific research has shown that a professionally installed central vacuum can reduce leading triggers of asthma, allergies, and breathing and skin conditions.
Once the air has been filtered and leaves the vacuum, it is exhausted out of the house, similar to a dryer vent, out into the garden and open air. This means that no dust, dirt, or other fine particles are re-circulated back into the air inside of your house. This improves air quality, making your home a cleaner, more pleasant place to live in. It also means that a central vacuum system is a far better choice for those suffering from allergies or asthma.
The lower maintenance option
The dust canister of a central vacuum does not need to be emptied as frequently as dust bags in portable vacuum cleaners do. The smaller bags you find in a portable vacuum cleaner need more frequent attention as they fill up faster and cost more in the long run as you have to purchase more replacement bags over the course of the machine’s lifetime. In contract, a central vacuum is able to hold much more trapped dirt, dust, and debris, which means that you don’t have to buy new filters as often. Instead, they usually only need to be changed once or twice a year, saving you time, money, and effort. This makes a central vacuum system a more economical choice.
Greater efficiency for a deeper clean
Compared to a portable vacuum, the greater power of a central vacuum motor means that suction and airflow are improved. This results in a deeper clean of your house, carpets, floor coverings, and furnishings. By cleaning your home and its fittings more thoroughly, you can extend their life and protect the investment you’ve made into your property. By trapping more dirt and debris from the surfaces of your home, it will also be cleaner as a result, benefitting the health of everyone in it.
Highly adaptable with different attachments
A central vacuum system can come with a host of different attachments and accessories. This allows you to tend to multiple cleaning needs with one easy to use, powerful, quiet system. Mop floors, dust furniture and upholstery, and even brush your pets with the various attachments we offer here at Vaccessories.
Add value to your property
A central vacuum adds value to your property, helping you improve the value of a potential resale. In addition to its utility, it is also more stylish, as the discreet inlets blend perfectly into modern interior design. Also, they are a greener option than traditional portable vacuums. It is easy to add a central vacuum system to a new house. Old homes can also be easily retrofitted to accommodate systems with minimal construction. This means that they add a host of excellent features to your home for a minimal investment, helping your property value rise.
How does a central vacuum work?
A central vacuum is a built-in system. It runs pipes through walls to a large motor often located out of the way in a garage or basement. Suction ports (that look similar to electrical outlets) are added to walls throughout the home. The user can simply attach and detach a hose to them, room to room.
No more worrying about your cord reaching around corners, furniture, and up the stairs. With a central vacuum system, you simply move the hose from inlet to inlet and get to all those formerly hard-to-clean areas with far less stress and trouble. Where you put the inlet is entirely up to you.
Some householders base their inlets on the number of square feet. Traditionally, you use one inlet for every 600 square feet of the home. If your home is a multi-story dwelling, you will need at least one inlet per storey. If you choose professional installation of your system, an installer can help you determine the best placement of inlets.
If you’re interested in a high-tech model, an advanced type of central vacuum system is the kind that includes baseboard suction. This allows the owner to sweep a pile of dirt into the baseboard, flip a switch, and watch a built-in port suck dirt away.
Other systems feature retractable hoses which retract inside the walls at various suction ports. This feature allows for even easier-to-use, space-friendly systems, as you don’t even need to carry a hose from room to room. That also reduces trip hazards, making them great for families with children and pets. This also frees up storage in your cupboards and other storage spaces, allowing for better use of the space within your home.
You can also find a central vacuum system that comes with broom suction systems. These are similar to vacuums but are usually located inside the kitchen. They are designed to quickly remove dirt and debris from floors, tables, and countertops. They allow you to obtain all the benefits and delicious joys of cooking without the hassle and stress of a post-meal clean-up.
