Building or Remodeling a Home?

Central Vacuums Are Still a Smart Choice

Building or Remodeling a Home?

We have written on these pages before about the benefits of central vacuums and central vacuum installation.  In this age of smart home technology, you may ask what’s so great about central vacuums?  No, they don’t vacuum the floors themselves (yet), but the traditional benefits of central vacuums are still intact in 2018. 

If you are building or remodeling a home, we’ve discussed the benefit of thinking about and planning for smart technology up front; it makes it much easier to plan the wiring, networking, and other infrastructure that is necessary for a future-proof smart home.  Central vacuums also benefit from the same advanced planning.  It’s much easier to plan for one in the framing, plumbing, and electrical wiring stage, and much less expensive to install than retrofitting.

If you are working on a large project – perhaps a significant addition or a new build – planning for a central vacuum makes sense. No one wants to drag a canister or upright vacuum all over a large home.  Of course, multiple vacuums can be purchased, but that also means multiple ones to maintain and store throughout the house. 

Let’s take another look at why central vacuums are a smart choice for your next Eden Prairie MN home build or remodel.
