How It Works
How a central vacuum works.
Central Vacuum Systems use specifically designed tubing installed in the walls of your home to carry 100% of the contacted dirt, dust and allergens away from living area to the central power unit commonly located in the garage or utility room.
To activate the system, simply insert the lightweight hose into a central vacuum wall inlet valve. Most homes will typically have one central vacuum inlet valve per 800 square feet. The flexible lightweight hose and inlet system allow you to easily move from room to room without having to push a heavy upright vacuum or pull a canister vacuum behind commonly bumping into walls or valuable furniture.
The power unit is located away from the living area, usually in a garage or utility room. Tubing is installed through interior walls, attic, and crawlspaces that connects the inlet valves to the power unit. Each strategically located inlet valve lets you vacuum approximately 800 square feet at a time.
Innovative accessories like the VacPan can be incorporated into the system for additional cleaning ease. This is a must have in kitchens and laundry and/or mud rooms.
You can exhaust the air the central vacuum uses to the outside or through a HEPA filter system to leave you nothing but clean indoor air.
