Vacuum Cleaning Systems Offer Several Advantages

Jan 12, 2008
Although many people are aware of vacuum cleaning systems, many don't understand much about them or the benefits of using them. Centralized vacuuming systems have a number of advantages, such as improved air quality, stronger suction power and larger dirt collection tanks. Also, central systems are quite easy to install and are able to be added to most homes if desired.

One of the biggest benefits to central vacuum systems is that they make the chore of vacuuming much less of a hassle. Instead of dragging out the old upright vacuums from a closet or the shop, you can simply attach a hose to its wall outlet and quickly vacuum up the area that needs attention. In most houses, each room has its own vacuum outlet, so there is no need to drag the clumsy upright vacuum cleaner from room to room, or from one floor to another, leaving the power cord trailing behind you.

In the case of centralized vacuum cleaning systems, the vacuumed dirt is sucked through the hose and is deposited in a collection area in a remote part of the house. However, with the normal upright vacuums or canister vacuums, there is some degree of the collected dirt and debris that is actually blown back into the room where it is operating.

The central vac systems completely pull the dirt out of the room so that the operator does not end up breathing in the escaped dust. This is turn results in improved air quality throughout the house.

In addition, you do not have to deal with changing its bags, which is a source of irritation, especially to those who suffer from allergies. While the collection reservoir of a central vacuum cleaning system still must be cleaned, it does not have to be done as often as bags have to be changed in upright vacuums. Also, the manufacturers of its systems have gone the extra mile, in designing the dirt collection canisters so that they can be cleaned easily and with minimal amounts of dust and dirt being released.

Central vacuum systems are also more powerful than most of the canister or the upright vacuums that are on the market. This is because the motor for the unit can be much larger since it is not attached to its unit that is being pushed or pulled throughout the house.

Most of the time, the vacuum motor is located in a basement or garage, or even outside the house, as it is very strong, providing excellent suction power. This suction power means that you can do a better job of vacuuming in a shorter period of time and that your carpets and upholstery will be better cleaned, will look better and will last much longer.

Another advantage of such type of systems is that they are very quiet. Because the motor is located in a separate area of the house, it is possible to vacuum while not disturbing others in the house and without frightening animals. Many people report that it is much more pleasant to take care of their cleaning tasks when they can listen to their favorite music or television show, or even talk on the phone, while it is running.

You will find that centralized vacuum cleaning systems are more costly upfront than the more common portable vacuums. Most vacuuming systems will cost somewhere between $600 and $2,000, as the cost depends on the size of the motor and the vacuums accessories that are needed. On top of that cost, there is also the expense of having the system installed, which will add at least a few hundred dollars, depending on the size of the installation.
