Advantages Of Installing a Central Vacuum
Central vacuum systems consist of a power unit that is usually mounted in the utility room, garage, or basement of a home and a series of inlet valves where a 30-35 foot hose can be connected. Central vacuum cleaners, also referred to as a built in vacuum, have become increasingly popular as of late, with many brands manufacturing these powerful vacuum cleaners. There are many advantages to owning one of these machines. While most portable machines are inexpensive, they simply do not last. When you install a central vac in your home, you'll find that the power unit will last up to 25 years without needing to be replaced. These systems are also much more powerful than a standard sweeper. This is because the motors in a whole house vacuum are exponentially larger than the 12 amp motor found in a canister or upright.
Powerful Suction and Filtration
With the large motors in these machines comes powerful cyclonic suction. When paired with HEPA filtration to remove 99.97% of all dust and allergens from the air, these units are highly effective in cleaning your home. However, central vacuums are capable of being even more efficient than any HEPA filter. When exhausted outdoors, these systems are actually 100% effective in removing harmful particles from the air. This completely eliminates harmful dust, dirt and allergens from being emitted back into your home, leaving your family healthy and allergy free.
These built in vacuums are also more convenient than any portable sweeper. Instead of carrying a heavy machine up and down flights of stairs, you can mount your hose and accessories right on the wall nearest your inlet. This saves you time and energy while cleaning and helps you to enjoy an easier cleaning experience. Perhaps one of the best advantages of using a central vacuum system in your home is that these systems are completely customizable. Whether you have heavy carpeting in your home or mainly hard flooring, there are tools and attachments available to cater to your unique cleaning needs.
Versatile Performance and Durability
If you have hard floors in your home without any carpeting, a power nozzle is not necessary. In this situation, you can use a standard central vacuum hose, available in sizes of up to 50 feet, with a standard inlet valve. What this means is that there is no electricity brought through the hose. Standard hoses can be used with many different attachments including a hardwood floor brush for cleaning tiles, linoleum and hardwood floors. If your home has heavy carpeting, a power nozzle will be necessary. There are many different power heads available from many different brands including Electrolux, Beam and Hayden that are all very powerful in cleaning your carpets.
When you use a power nozzle with your whole-house vacuum, you'll need to use a hose that offers an electrical connection. With this type of hose you can use either standard or super inlet valves. With a standard valve, you will need to use a hose with a pig tail cord on the end, this is a 6 foot cord on the end of your hose that is plugged into a nearby electrical outlet to bring electricity to your power nozzle. With super valve, however, you will use a direct connect hose. This hose has two prongs on the end that plug directly into your valve to bring electricity to your hose. When installing a super valve, you'll need to wire electricity into the valve.

Central Vacuum Installation Materials
Because all central vacuum systems use these valves, the hoses and accessories are interchangeable with the power unit. However, a great way to save money on your installation is by purchasing the power unit, hose, accessories and installation materials all together in a builder's package. These materials can be quite costly when sold separately, however when purchased in a package you'll save hundreds of dollars.
