Central Vacuum

Central vacuum systems boast some advantages over portable units, some of which are as follows:

  • They are long-lasting. Their motors can handle more usage than typical portable units. Warranties, too, are usually longer for central units.
  • They are quiet. Because the motor is located outside the living area, users are not subjected to noise created by the motor, which can be excessive and stressful.
  • They can be retrofitted into older houses, or built into new construction.
  • They are a good investment. Just as a kitchen renovation or new deck will make a home more valuable, many buyers will pay extra for a house equipped with a central vacuum.
  • They are hypo-allergenic. Unlike portable vacuums, which recycle air back into the room, dust-laden air is blown into the outdoors from central vacuum systems. One comprehensive study conducted at the University of California at Davis’ School of Medicine compared portable to central units and concluded that “a central vacuuming system would best provide [allergen
  • removal] as it would be installed outside the living area of the dwelling and/or vented outdoors.”
  • The system is easy and safe to use. There is no heavy equipment to carry from room to room, and no electric cords to trip over or catch on furniture.
