A central vacuum cleaner offers numerous benefits over a traditional portable vacuum cleaner.
Because of its powerful motor and large air flow, central vacuums pick up deep down dirt, dust and debris, even microscopic particles like pollen, mold spores and dust mites. Central vacuums eliminate all those dust particles you see in the air after vacuuming with a portable as well as that familiar "vacuum smell." Unlike a traditional vacuum cleaner, which recirculates into the air some of the dirt and particles it picks up, a central vacuum removes 100% of all vacuumed dirt, particles and allergens from the home.
A Central Vacuum System equipped with Hide-A-Hose eliminates heavy equipment to lug around, no cords to trip over or catch on furniture, no clunky unit nicking the furniture and woodwork as you move from room to room. The lightweight hose and attachments is easy to carry.
Because the noise from the system is generated in an out-of-the-way area, vacuuming with a central vac system makes less noise than a hairdryer or clothes dryer. Quiet enough to vacuum in the same room with a sleeping child!
The central vacuum cleaner system is composed of tubing installed behind drywall that delivers dirt and debris to a power unit typically installed in a basement or garage. The central vacuum power unit supplies more suction power than an upright or canister vacuum because it is equipped with a more powerful motor. Inlets are installed in walls throughout the building that attach to a hose and other central vacuum accessories to remove dust, particles, and small debris from interior rooms.
Central vacuum hoses can range from 20 to 50 feet. The central vacuum hose can be plugged into the inlet valve or be self-contained within the tubing in the wall. A newer self-contained hose (see Hide-A-Hose system) eliminates the need to carry a bulky central vacuum hose and find a place to store it. The Hide-A-Hose central vacuum system uses suction to draw the hose into the vacuum tubing in the wall for storage.
Central vacuums hoses can be equipped with an air-driven power brush. Central vacuum air-driven (or turbine) power brushes frequently are less expensive because they don't require electrical wires for power to be run to each wall inlet. Many users find that the high suction of central vacuums is more than sufficient by itself for most casual cleaning jobs, but reserve a powered brush tool for more difficult tasks.
In addition to the central vacuum power brush, standard cleaning tools similar to those used with portable vacuum cleaners are also utilized. For further convenience, some owners will keep a set of tools on each floor of a multi-story building.
Automatic dustpans built for central vacuum systems can be installed in the kick space under a kitchen, bathroom, or workroom countertop, enabling a person to use a standard broom to sweep debris directly into a vacuum inlet located there.
Wall inlets are connected to the power unit by tubes that can be run inside walls, or through vertical pipe chases, closets, the attic, basement, or the cold air return ducts (if permitted by building code). In new construction, the central vacuum tubing is usually installed during a "rough-in" phase once the building interior framing is complete, after other in-wall utilities (e.g. plumbing, HVAC, electrical, etc.), and just before drywall, paneling, or other surface finishes are installed. Central vacuum tubing should probably be installed before cabling (for electric power, telephone, LAN, etc.), since routing of wiring is usually less constrained than tubing. In a similar manner to plumbing and electrical fixtures, the vacuum inlet fittings and final connections are installed in a finish phase, after the wall finishing is complete.
Vacuum tubing systems should be installed by central vacuum dealers. (Retrofitting of vacuum tubing in existing home can be easy and cost-effective when a trained central vacuum dealeris involved.)
There are many advantages for a homeowner to install a central vacuum.
Increased suction power – Because the central vacuum motor and dirt collection system need not be portable, the motor's horsepower can be larger than a portable system.
Difficult and larger debris – Central vacuums can efficiently remove difficult dry substances, such as plaster dust, spilled flour, or even larger pieces of debris that can clog a portable vacuum such as slivers of broken glass.
Removal of allergens and noxious odors – Central vacuums do not re-circulate exhaust air back into the space being cleaned.
Less noisy – central vacuums are quieter since the powerful motor is located remotely in a utility space. This is a benefit to the person vacuuming, as well as anybody else occupying the space being cleaned, which otherwise might be woken up or driven out by the loud motor of portable machines.
Convenience – Setup, use, and stowage of a central vacuum hose and cleaning tool can be quick and efficient. Cleaning stairways is much easier without having to lug a portable vacuum cleaner on each step.
Infrequent emptying – A central vacuum system typically can accumulate up to 10 kg (22 pounds) or more of dirt in the dirt collection canister before requiring disposal. This is an unavoidable messy task that must be performed for any portable vacuum cleaner, but can be done much less frequently, perhaps a few times per year.
Can be used with standard tools and accessories – Most central vacuum hoses are compatible with a wide range of industry standard brushes and tools used with ordinary portable vacuum cleaners.
Less damage and wear to furniture and walls – There is no heavy or awkward canister or other motorized unit to carry from room to room when vacuuming. Only a lightweight vacuum hose and the cleaning tool being used need to be carried.
Long Life – Good-quality central vacuum systems can last indefinitely, perhaps requiring replacement of the motor brushes once per decade of use.
