Central Vacuum Systems

Cleaning the house may not be your idea of a fun activity. But while vacuuming may never be fun, there is a way to make the job a little easier.

Most of us vacuum with the standard movable unit but have you ever thought of installing a central vacuum system in your home? Central vacuum systems are becoming more common, can cost less than a high-end movable vacuum and can add to your home’s resale value.  They can be installed in new construction homes and most existing homes.

Central vacuum systems are designed to remove dirt and debris from homes and buildings, sending dirt particles through tubing installed inside the walls to a collection container in a remote utility space. The power unit is a permanent fixture, typically installed in a basement, garage, or storage room, along with the collection container. Inlets are installed in walls throughout the building that attach to power hoses and other central vacuum accessories to remove dust, particles, and small debris from interior rooms. Most power hoses typically have a power switch located on the handle.  The motors in these units allow much more suction power than standard movable units.
