Shopping for a central vac?

What are the benefits of a central vac? Central vacuums are up to five times more powerful than portable vacuums. Other than adding more value to your home, a central vacuum also provides a healthier and cleaner living environment for both family and pets. The central vacuum traps up to 100% of contacts dirt and dangerous allergen that are typically found in every home.

The most important question, however, is why should you invest in a central vacuum system when you can get a standard vacuum cleaner for half the price? The average central vacuum unit can last up to 20x longer than your average conventional vacuum.

Advantages of Central Vacuum Systems:
  • Central vacuums are more powerful - unlike a traditional vacuum cleaner where you need to carry the motor and suction fan with you from room to room during the cleaning process, a central vac system gives you freedom. Since the power unit (the fan and motor) are fixed in place, you get more powerful suction from a stronger motor and larger fan. This leads to better cleaning, less effort, and time saving.
  • Central vacuums are more thorough - The dirty air sucked in by a central vac is pushed out of your house directly or filtered out with an indoor muffler/exhaust filter. This means that the air inside your home is much cleaner and allergy free for longer. Moreover, the cleaning is so methodical that even the microscopic particles of dust are removed without a sweat. Central vacs are popular as they ensure good health of your family and lived ones, especially babies, children and seniors.
  • Central vacuums are more efficient - Because of their size and power, central vacuums have better filtration process that makes cleaning more efficient. The debris is captured in a large-sized removable dust container or disposable bag underneath. This container or bag should be dumped out a few times throughout the year. Because central vacuums have more power than a regular household vacuum, you get a deeper more efficient clean.
  • Central vacuums are quieter - Central vacs are quieter than traditional vacuum cleaners as they are placed away from the most used areas in your home, like the garage. No longer will you have to scream over the vacuum motor to be heard, nor will you have to turn up the volume of the radio to hear your favorite songs. With central vacuums, you can talk in a normal tone and be heard without any difficulty.

The toughest part is actually choosing the right central vacuum is based on your specific needs/requirements and, most importantly, the size of your house. Some households have the need for something to deal with allergies, pet hair/dander, better efficiency, or just something better for everyday vacuuming that those portable vacuums just can’t handle anymore. Some of the giants in the central vacuum industry include Drainvac®, Canavac®, Purvac®, Hoover®, Duovac®, and Powerstar®, NuTone®are considered the best companies as they use the most state-of-the-art materials available to the industry today.
