Let’s face it, vacuuming can be a chore, especially if your home has stairs. Hauling it up and downstairs, moving it into different rooms, looking for power outlets, trying not to run over the cord that gets in the way – and then of course, there is the mess of emptying the bag or canister.

Installing a central vacuum is the answer to all these issues and more. If that is true, why haven’t more people installed one in their home? The fact is, many homeowners aren’t even aware central vacuums are an option, and there are many misconceptions about how they work.

Can You Install Central Vac In Existing Home?

One of the greatest misconceptions about central vacuums is that installing a system in an existing home requires a major renovation and tearing down walls. Thankfully, this isn’t true. The only hole required is covered with an inlet backing plate and the pipes are usually fed through an attic, basement, or crawlspace.

Benefits and Features of a Central Vacuum System

Here are just a few reasons to choose a central vac:

  1. Lightweight: No more hauling a vacuum upstairs. Eliminate heavy lifting and tangled cords!
  2. Convenient: To activate the central vacuum system, just plug the lightweight hose into the wall inlet, flip the switch on the handle, and start cleaning.
  3. Hygienic: Central vac systems are far more effective than conventional vacuums at providing relief from allergy symptoms and triggers.
  4. Powerful: 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.

Allergies? Breathe Easy with a Central Vac

Central vacuum owners comment about how much cleaner the air is inside their homes, and allergy sufferers typically notice a reduction in their allergy symptoms. A central vacuum system removes 100% of contacted dust, mites, pollen, animal dander, and other allergens. If you have allergies, you know how incredible that number is! This makes a central vacuum system ideal for those with allergies.

Something else that is a fantastic benefit, is that central vacuum systems have a much larger collection receptacle than conventional vacuums, so they don’t have to be emptied as often. This reduces an allergy sufferer’s exposure to dust. Also, 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.
