Benefits of a Central Vacuum System

A central vacuum system is an absolute asset to your home. What could be easier than just plugging a light weight hose into the power unit and off you go?  No more heavy and cumbersome canister units to drag around the house or carry up the stairs!  No more dirty and dusty vacuum cleaner bags to change or purchase again and again when you run out!  A central vacuum system offers a powerful and effective cleaning alternative to a regular vacuum cleaner.

If you are considering purchasing a central vacuum system for your home, there are many factors to consider. While there are many benefits to this type of cleaning system, cost is definitely a consideration. The average central vacuum system can cost anywhere between $1,200 and $3,000 dollars.  The total cost depends on the unit that you choose and the size of your home as pipes and vents must be run throughout the house, so installation fees may vary. Keep in mind though that a central vacuum system is absolutely an investment in your home. The money that you spend on the system will definitely be returned when you sell the house; a central vacuum system increases the value of your home. In addition, central vacuum systems are long lasting and require little maintenance.  Central vacuum owners can usually go over ten years before needing to replace any major accessories or worry about maintenance. Over the same course of time, you may go through several costly portable vacuum cleaners.

Now that we have discussed the cost considerations of a central vacuum system, let’s talk about the many benefits.  Most homeowners will agree that a central vacuum system offers powerful cleaning and convenience! Say goodbye to hauling around a heavy canister or upright vacuum. Plug the hose in the wall of any room and begin vacuuming. Central vacuums also have a wide range of accessories that allow you to clean places that a traditional vacuum cannot reach. Clean floors, walls and ceilings – no other vacuum allows you that cleaning ability!  There isn’t any other vacuuming system that will let you clean as efficiently and effectively as a central vacuum system.  And central vacuum motors can be up to three times stronger than the motors in portable vacuums, so they pick up more dirt, dust and particles and deep debris.

According to Doityourself.com central vacuum systems may also reduce the allergens in your home. They state that, “With the increase in airflow, (from a central vacuum system) more dust and dander gets removed from the home, making it a cleaner and less allergenic environment.”

In addition to powerful and convenient cleaning, a central vacuum system offers the following additional benefits:

  • Minimal vacuum noise – Since the motor is usually located in a garage or basement, the only noise you will hear is the air flowing through the hose.
  • No power cords, extension cords or vacuum cleaner bags
  • Lightweight, flexible and easy to use – With a central system, all you need to do is take the lightweight vacuum hose from room to room, plug it into the port and clean away!
  • Long lasting – A central vacuum system outlasts several portable vacuum cleaners.

With so many advantages, it is not surprising that central vacuum systems are becoming a common addition to many homes.  For a quality central vacuum system installation, contact the experts at Priced Rite Central Vacuum at 516-286-0042.
