The vacuum unit in a central vacuum system is the cylindrical
appliance that houses the vacuum motors.
This appliance is usually mounted in the garage or utility room of a home.
Vacuum units come in three difference styles, bagged, cyclonic, and combination.
Each style has its advantages, and has an ideal
role in the home, with corresponding equipment.
Central vacuum dealers who sell only cyclonic vacuums,
will argue that bagged vacuums are inferior,
because the bag cuts down on airflow.
As a vendor who sells all three styles of central vacuums,
we can prove this is untrue.
ALL central vacuums have a barrier to protect the motor(s).
Cyclonic vacuums cannot have their motor(s)
run in an environment filled with debris.
Cyclonic vacuums are not bagless,
they have a bag/barrier cradling the motor(s) to keep their environment clean.
The barrier placed around a cyclonic style
vacuum is significantly smaller than an eight or twelve gallon
HEPA filter bag used as a barrier with a bagged-style central vacuum.
Both barriers, whether they are small or large, cut down on airflow.
Bagged vacuums have more surface area for airflow,
therefore are not inferior when it comes to suction.
MD Central Vacuum Units are designed and assembled in the USA,
built from steel, and entirely powder-coat painted to ensure
durability. Strategically selected for optimum performance,
motors are installed at the base of the unit. This design
keeps the vacuum unit cooler, resulting in optimum compaction
of debris and less wear and tear on the system. Less wear and
tear means less maintenance, which adds up to a longer lasting
