In addition to being handy, central vacuums reduce allergy symptoms and do an excellent job of vacuuming.

Because the vacuum canister can be larger than a conventional household vacuum’s, it can do a more powerful job of collecting dust, pollen, dander, and other airborne pollutants without re-circulating those allergens into living spaces the way a conventional, portable vacuum cleaner does.

A central vacuum system makes cleaning your floors a breeze!光束

And even though central vacuums are larger and more powerful than conventional vacuums, they are quieter because the motor is remote.

How a Central Vacuum System Works

使用内置的中央真空系统,您不必在房间,房间或上下楼梯上拖着沉重的真空吸尘器。取而代之的是,您只需在长而轻的软管末端的清洁附件上手提上即可。要进行真空,您将软管插入了几个墙壁或落地式插座中的任何一个。灰尘和碎屑通过软管进入插座,然后通过隐藏的塑料管系统进入偏远罐。真空罐通常位于地下室或车库中。

中央真空系统购买指南

The trick to buying the right central vacuum system for your home is making sure it is sized correctly, not only for the square footage of your house but also for the length of pipe required to service the system. The most important rating to look for is “waterlift,” which refers to the system’s sucking power. This will determine how well the vacuum can draw the dirt through all of the piping.

Central vacuum systems cost from $600 to $1,500, depending on the size, amount of piping needed, and power. Most dealers quote a price including installation, so make it clear if you plan on doing the installation yourself.

如何安装中央真空系统

Installing a central vacuum system is infinitely easier to do in new construction, but a system can be retrofitted into an existing home with relative ease as long as there is adequate access to a basement, crawlspace, or attic. The four main components are the power unit (which also includes the dirt-collection bin), usually installed in a garage, basement, or utility room; the inlet valves; PVC tubing; and a lightweight hose with the cleaning wand.
