Why Should I Choose a Central Vacuum System?
A central vacuum system is a cleaning system built right into a structure's walls. An arrangement of tubing leads to a centrally located power unit that is typically located in a garage or basement. To operate the system, lightweight, bendable hosing is inserted into a wall or floor outlet.
Choose this system if:
- you have many stairs in the house or a medical condition that makes lugging a heavy vacuum up and down a flight of steps dangerous or unreasonable
- you need to keep noise pollution to a minimum
- you want to increase the value of your home
A central vacuum is highly recommended for homes with occupants who suffer from chronic respiratory illness. Nasal allergy symptoms can be reduced by as much as 47 percent, eye symptoms by 61 percent and the internal atmosphere quality can be improved by as much as 52 percent with this type of system.
