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. Trying
to navigate under and between furniture. 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
old one fell apart.
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
#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 ten year warranty
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. Read the UC Davis
Central Vacuum Clinical Study (PDF)
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.
