Central Vacuum Cleaning Systems Bring Convenience And Quiet

Jan 4, 2008
A central vacuum cleaning unit is a terrific amenity to have in your home. These days, many of the new houses are built with a vacuum system included and is a selling feature that is quite desirable. But, if your home was not built with such a system, then don't worry, because they are actually quite easy to install in almost any existing structure.

The major benefits, in addition to the convenience of the central vac systems is the superior cleaning performance that homeowners enjoy, as well as improved elimination of airborne pollutants. Studies that have been initiated by the manufacturers of such systems, have shown that the cleaning ability of centralized systems is upwards of 25% more effective and efficient than portable upright or even canister vacuums.

One of the primary reasons that homeowners decide to seek out central vacuum cleaning units is because of the significant improvement in air quality in the home. For those who have to take extra precautions to avoid allergic reactions, removing airborne pollutants is key. The motors in central vacuums are more powerful than any type of portable vacuum and as a result, toxins and polluting elements in the air are more effectively removed.

In addition, the central vac cleaning systems do not recirculate the dirty and tainted air like the portable units do. One of the most common problems with portable vacuums occurs when the vacuum bags have become overly full.

Often, this results in the particulates that have been sucked into the device being released into the air again. Also, the task of changing their bags is also a point at which a great deal of the dirt and pollutants, that had been trapped, can be released back into the air.

Portable vacuum cleaners that have HEPA filters do a better job of containing the harmful particles after they are drawn into the vacuum bags, but there is a trade-off. The HEPA filters do effectively capture the harmful allergens, but because of the tiny size of the pores in the filter, the air flow is restricted and the cleaning power is reduced significantly, especially in comparison to a central vac cleaning system.

Another one of the favorite benefits that central vac systems offer to homeowners is the virtual elimination of noise pollution. Typical upright vacuums and canister vacuums can be heard throughout the house when they are being used.

This disturbs others in the household and often frightens the family pets as well. However, the motor in central vacuums is usually located in a part of the house where animals and people do not linger, such as in the garage or a part of the basement where the other household equipment is located.

Because of this feature, central vacuum systems can be used without disturbing others. On top of that, whoever gets left with the chore can also enjoy music or a favorite television show while vacuuming and can even have a conversation on the phone if desired. Only a small amount of noise is created by the flow of air into the hose. However, if a carpet brush is used, then a minimal amount of noise may be generated by the motor for such device accessories.

When a central vacuum cleaning unit is installed in a home, there in no need to wrestle and struggle with the bulky upright or canister vacuums. Instead, it is simply a matter of attaching the hose to an outlet in the wall of the room that needs cleaning, attaching any needed accessories and turning on the power switch. This convenience is particularly appreciated by those who live in multi-story houses because it eliminates moving the heavy portable units from one floor to the other.
