Vacuuming your home is one of the best ways to remove dirt, dust, and debris from your floors. Unfortunately, lugging a heavy vacuum from room to room or even floor to floor can be difficult. Thankfully, you have the option of installing a central system that enables you to use a portable vacuum cleaner to tackle any room in your home conveniently. Learning about central vacuum systems can help you determine if this is the right option for your home.
What Is a Central Vacuum System?
Central vacuum systems are vacuums that are built right into your home. These systems have a vacuum that is stored in one location in the home, typically in the basement or garage.
The vacuum has a PVC pipe system that runs behind the walls and connects to various rooms in the home. You use a portable hose and hook it up to the specific wall location where the pipe is, allowing you to clean all areas of your home without having to carry a heavy vacuum to each location.
The Benefits of Central Vacuum Systems?
There are several benefits to using central vacuum systems instead of standard vacuums for cleaning your home.
They Have Better Suction
These systems tend to have far superior suction quality when compared to other types of vacuums. Central vacuum systems have a much larger motor than portable vacuums, which helps to produce suction that is between three and five times more powerful. This provides a much deeper clean. This is greatly beneficial for individuals who suffer from allergies as the stronger suction allows for the removal of even the tiniest dust particles.
Improved Air Quality
It is extremely common for portable vacuum cleaners to leave hind dust clouds. This can pollute your air and irritate anyone who suffers from allergies. Central vacuum systems are positioned away from the rooms that they are used in. As a result, there is no dust or dirt launched into the air during its use. This helps to ensure better air quality, especially when compared to a portable vacuum.
They Last Longer
Portable vacuums tend to last between three and four years. If you do not maintain them, the time that you can depend on them to work correctly may be even shorter. Central vacuum systems are designed to last between 20-30 years or longer. This can drastically reduce the amount of money that you spend replacing your vacuums. Additionally, if you use a bagless system, you will save even more money from not having to spend money on bags.
They Are Easier to Use
Portable vacuums can be heavy to carry and difficult to maneuver. Central vacuum systems are much easier, ensuring that you are able to get a thorough cleaning in your home by simply carrying a hose around and attaching it to the PVC openings.
