Central Vacuum Hoses

The central vacuum hoses today are miles away from what they initially were, namely some heavy, short-lasting and not very powerful and efficient accessories people fitted on their vacuum cleaners. Times have changed, trends have changed, needs have changed and therefore, vacuum cleaner hoses have changed. The models available today are not only much smoother on the inside, but also much wider, which means they are far more efficient than the older ones. 

There are three types of central vacuum hoses that can be fitted on central vacuums. These are basic hoses, low voltage hoses and electric hoses. The latter only deliver good results if assisted by an electric brush. In fact, they need an electric brush to deliver any results at all. The second type of hoses can be fitted on any vacuum cleaner that does not feature such a brush. Finally, the basic models are the least common and the least efficient. However, the last shall be the first, so let’s take a closer look at each of them and start with the basic models.

Basic central vacuum hoses used to be a lot narrower and rougher, but that is no longer the case. Manufacturers have woken up and adjusted to their customers’ needs by changing the design so that the suction power is higher and the user can vacuum much more easily. The suction power of the new models is 27% higher than with the older models, to be exact. They are crushproof, lightweight and very convenient, so they have all the basic features such an accessory should have in order to perform well. Some people mistake the basic features of these hoses for poor quality but that should not be the case. Basic does not mean poor quality. Basically, it means offering exactly what one needs to do their cleaning job properly. Find your manufacturer of what central vacuum hose you may need.

The low voltage central vacuum hoses are more advanced than the basic ones in that they have a few additional features. They may be low voltage hoses, but they are definitely highly convenient with their suction switch which can save you from chasing wall inlets all the time. With these hoses, the power is controlled via a low voltage wire. Low voltage hoses are the perfect match for air-driven powerheads and although they cost a little more than the basic models, the extra money pays for the extra quality.

Finally, there are the central vacuum electric hoses, which are designed to withstand your constant abuse. People often drop their vacuum hoses, stretch them or slam them, so it was high time manufacturers responded and minimized the risk of damage. These models feature both low voltage and high voltage wires to supply the nozzle with power and they are also much wider than the older models. They may be pretentious in that they only match the vacuum cleaners equipped with electric brushes, but their performance is flawless on all surfaces. 

Most people focus on the motor of a vacuum cleaner rather than on the hose, but central vacuum hoses deserve more attention than that because they can make things much easier in terms of cleaning with all their upgraded features.
