The study showed a 44% to 61% improvement in sleep, nasal, non-nasal, eye, and emotional symptoms. A second independent study compared short- and long-term soil removal and emissions of leading upright vacuums and the Beam central vacuum system.

Central vacuum systems have a much larger collection receptacle than conventional vacuums, so they don’t have to be emptied as often, reducing your exposure to dust. (An average system only needs to be emptied once every three months.) Because the power unit is typically installed in a garage or basement, emptying the collection receptacle is unlikely to reintroduce dirt into your main living areas.
