What Are the Benefits of Installing a Central Vacuum?
Embrace A More Efficient, Convenient Way to Clean Your Home
Prepare for 2017 with technology that can make it easier to keep your Woodbury, MN home clean and your family healthy. The key is upgrading your traditional vacuum cleaner for a central vacuum that ensures all dirty and debris are removed from your home while making it easier for you to get to hard-to-reach areas. A central vacuum cleaner is composed of multiple parts.The engine goes in the garage or basement, separate from the primary home unit, with the collection container located right next to it. This power unit connects to hoses leading to individual vacuum inlets in the home's interior rooms. These inlets will then contain the accessories needed to do the actual cleaning
Though initially central vacuums were used primarily in commercial applications, by the 1990’s they began to gain traction in the luxury real estate market. The main impetus for the vacuum’s popularity was its efficient removal of allergens. Below we highlight how it does that as well as some of its other key benefits:
Removing Allergens: A central vacuum immediately removes all dirt and debris from the home, as opposed to traditional vacuums where dirt and allergens recirculate throughout the space. This is what leads to that funky smell just after you’ve vacuumed.
Powerful Motor: Most vacuums are forced to use smaller engines to be portable and easy to use. Since the engine is stored separately in a central vacuum, homeowners can invest in larger motors or even dual-motor systems. This makes it easier to remove larger debris including broken glass.
Increased Durability: For one, central vacuums don’t experience the decrease in power caused by diminishing batteries or overfilled bags. You also eliminate the risk of damaging the motor by bumping into walls or furniture.
Pet-Friendly: Not only will it be better at picking up your dog's fur, but your central vacuum is also less likely to spook it. Without the motor being physically present, it is very quiet when being used.
Ease-of-Use: With no heavy motor to carry around, it’s easier to get hard-to-reach areas whether you're trying to run the vacuum on the stairs or in a corner behind the bed.
Quick Maintenance: With a larger disposal container, you can go much longer without having to empty out your vacuum’s bag. Your central container is still similar to the bags used by traditional vacuums, just larger, so it’s easy to remove.
Ease of Access: Instead of having your vacuum stored in a distant utility closet and having to lug it into each room, it’s already waiting for you when you get there. Simply pull out the hose and necessary accessories from your vacuum inlet to get started.
Aesthetic Benefits: When not in use, your vacuum hose is cleanly hidden away within its respective inlet which blends in perfectly with the surrounding wall.
