Learn About Central Vacuum Systems

A central vacuum system is essentially a serious of hoses and vacuum tubes that are accessible through certain points in your home. The hoses in the vacuum system connect to a central cylinder where the suction is created and the debris is then held. By installing a central vac, you can easily access the most powerful vacuum you have ever used in your home in almost any room and never have to worry about changing a bag or emptying the dirt canister. With a large central unit, the debris canister needs to be emptied only once every few months, depending on how often you use it and how messy your home gets. Central vacuum systems can improve the indoor air quality of your home by removing harmful dirt and debris from the air and the ground.

A central vac can be installed during construction of a home, or it can be installed in existing homes, although it may be difficult to fit access points in every room you would like, since other ventilation tubes may be in the way. The serious of hoses that will run though your home when a central vac is installed may cause you to second guess yourself. Luckily, hide-a-hose technology is available and quite common in central vac systems. The hide-a-hose is a retractable vacuum tube that is interlaced throughout your home on a series of pulleys that curve the hose at a soft angle so that the hose does not get damaged when expanding and retracting.

If you are having trouble determining whether or not a central vacuum is right for your home, or you are just trying to find the best central vacuum system, the exerts at Republic Elite Integration can help. An Electrolux central vacuum is usually our recommendation, because they offer the best mix of power and durability while remaining relatively low-cost. Other options would be a Beam central vacuum or a Nutone central vacuum. If you have been doing research on your own but just need that last push towards the right system, Republic Elite Integration’s trained technicians can help you choose the right central vac. Once you have decided on your system, REI can install your new central vacuum for you and show you how to properly use and maintain it.

To summarize, here are a few reasons why central vacuums just might be better than portable vacs:

  1. Improved indoor air quality
  2. Vacuum access from your wall in almost every room
  3. Less frequent vacuum cleaning and maintenance
  4. Hide-A-Hose makes your vacuum invisible
