Frequently Asked Questions
What is a central vacuuming system?
A central vacuuming system, also known as a whole-house vacuum, is a built-in system which pipes run through the walls of the home and are connected to a large vacuum system. This system can usually be found in a garage or basement.
Why should I invest in a central vacuum system?
You should invest in a central vacuum system because, unlike portable vacuums that throw allergens back into the air, a central vacuum system draws these allergens and dust particles out of the house and into the basement or garage. Then, these allergy-causing dust particles are exhausted outdoors to give you a cleaner and healthier indoor living environment.
What is the best central vacuum system?
The best central vacuum system is the Vacumaid Cyclonic Central Vacuum Power Unit, since it reduces allergy systems and respiratory problems and keeps your home’s air fresh and clean.
What is the most powerful central vacuum?
The most powerful central vacuum is the Allegro Central Vacuum System. When we tested it in our home, it quickly and powerfully sucked up allergens and dust that made us think it was “allergy season”.
Are central vacuum systems worth it?
Central vacuums are usually worth buying, but they may not be worth the investment if you have a house that’s 1200 sq ft or less. This is because you may never vacuum your house enough to justify needing to buy a central vacuum.
How much does it cost to install a central vacuum system?
The average cost for a central vacuum system installation is between $1,200 to $3,000. The amount and type of wall inlets, power unit, hose, and accessory kit are all factors which affect the price.
How long does a central vacuum last?
A central vacuum can easily last 20 years.
How often should you clean your central vacuum?
You should clean your central vacuum between 2 and 4 times every year. The frequency of which you should clean your central vacuum depends on the system and how much your home needs to be cleaned.
