How Central Vacuums Work

Imagine not having to carry a heavy machine up and down your stairs, move it from room to room, or worry about tripping over cords. With a central vacuum system, specially designed tubing is installed right into the walls of your home. Dirt, dust and allergens are carried through the tubes to a large collection canister located in an out-of-the-way location such as your garage or basement.

To activate the central vacuum system, just plug the lightweight hose into the wall inlet, flip the switch on the handle, and start cleaning! Central vacuums offer the same range of attachments and accessories as portable vacuums, but are three to five times more powerful, which can make a significant improvement in your indoor air quality.
