7 Reasons to Buy a Central Vacuum

We've all experienced it at least once in our lives. Hauling a vacuum cleaner up and down stairs. Examining a room after putting the vacuum cleaner away, and having an odd sense that the room seems dustier than when you began. Worst of all, finding ourselves back at the stores every few years to purchase yet another vacuum cleaner because the previous one just stopped picking up the dirt.

Installing a central vacuum system is the answer to all these complaints. Why, then, don't more people have one? In a word, profit. The truth is, even though central vacuums are superior to regular vacuums, big name central vacuum manufacturers can make more money selling portable vacuum cleaners at more regular intervals than selling their central vacuum systems. These manufacturers have the money to nationally advertise central vacuums, but they choose not to.

If you're like most homeowners, you're probably not too familiar with central vacuum systems. For instance, some people mistakenly believe that installing a centralized system in a pre-existing home will cause property damage, but this is not true (see item #7 below). So here are seven simple reasons why you should consider installing a central vacuum system in your home.

#1 Minimal Vacuum Noise

Most of us are so accustomed to the noisy racket vacuum cleaners make, we don't think twice about turning it on, even if someone is trying to sleep or talk on the phone. We assume that noise just comes with the territory. Believe it or not, noise doesn't "come with the territory" if you have a central vacuum system. In fact, there is an absence of noise because the source of noise (the motor) is not in the house but is centrally located elsewhere, such as the basement or garage. Think of it as the dawning of a new era where vacuuming and life can actually coexist for the first time.

#2 Super Easy to Use

Okay, so we can agree that very few love to do household chores. However, we can also agree that using a central vacuum system makes cleaning and dusting as close to painless as one can come, and some may even call it fun. Forget about lugging around a bulky canister or hauling an unwieldy upright around the house. No more standing on chairs trying to reach high ceilings only to come a few feet short. A spill on the top shelf of the top cabinet? No problem. Dust-covered ceiling fans? Piece of cake. Cat hair on sofas? Carpeted stairs? Screen doors, vents, appliances, you name it. What other vacuuming system lets you clean every nook and cranny of the house so quickly and effectively?

#3 Goodbye Portable Vacuums

Most standard portable vacuum cleaners need to be replaced every few years. By contrast, once a central vacuum system is installed, all you need to worry about is basic maintenance. In a head to head comparison, a central vacuum will always beat out a portable or canister vacuum. Consider these advantages to owning a central vacuum system:

Motor(s) used in central vacuums are 75-200% larger than portable vacuums

Higher suction, means faster clean up--Enjoy a higher level of clean quicker

The dirt, dander, and dust allergens are removed from the living area, not just re-circulated or suspended in the air

Large trash capacity, which allows for months of cleaning

No vacuum stink

No filter troubles, bags are HEPA-filters

Longevity, M.D. central vacuum motors have a 10 year warranty. Call for warranty details.

Costs less than portables bought over time

Lightweight and easy to use

Adds to the value of your house

#4 Cleaner Air, Reduced Allergies

One of the first things central vacuum owners realize is how much cleaner the air inside their home is once they start using their systems. Allergy sufferers in particular notice an immediate reduction in their symptoms. In fact, science has proven that using a central vacuum system actually alleviates allergy symptoms. The reason for this is simple: unlike portable vacuums that recycle vacuumed allergens back into the air, the central vacuum system draws these allergens out of the house and into the basement or garage, where they are then exhausted outdoors. Portable vacuum cleaners cannot promise the same results because they do not transport the allergens outside of the living environment.

#5 Versatile

Furniture and carpets inside the home aren't the only surfaces that collect dust. Nooks and crannies outside the home can benefit from the power and efficiency of a central vacuum system too. The long central vacuum hose makes easy work of cars, trucks, vans, boats, or RV's. Whether your garage is shrouded in cobwebs or is a neatly-organized area for crafts or woodworking, a central vacuum system is ideal. It doesn't stir up dust like broom sweeping and is a lot less cumbersome than dragging a portable machine outside. In fact, 80% of men report they vacuum more when a central vacuum is installed. The most common reason?
"It feels more like a power tool than a household appliance."

#6 Powerful Deep Cleaning

Central vacuums extract not only surface dust, but also the deep grit and particulates that age carpet. It has been proven a central vacuum helps protect your investment, by preserving the look, texture, nap, color, and feel of your carpeting.

Dusting with a central vacuum brings a level of clean to your hard surfaces, upolstery, and furniture that no portable vacuum, cloth, or feather duster can. It's a clean that lasts.

The powerful stationary central vacuum motor(s), can be up to three times stronger than standard upright vacuum motors. Unlike portable vacuum cleaners, the central vacuum motor lasts longer, allowing it to do its primary job, which is to provide consistent, strong suction through the PVC network.

#7 A Smart Investment

Most shoppers don't regard purchases such as household appliances as investments. Yet installing a central vacuum not only saves money over time, it also adds value to your property. As a long-term investment, dollars spent installing a central vacuum system in a newly built or existing home is money that will come back when the property is sold.

Central vacuum systems last longer than portable vacuum cleaners. While most portable vacuum cleaners need to be replaced every few years on average, by contrast, central vacuum owners can usually go ten years before they even think about replacing accessories or scheduling maintenance.
