The system is normally installed during the building of your new home, but can also be installed in existing homes. Pipes will be built into the walls (for existing homes, the pipes will run above the ceiling). The power unit (vacuum machine) will be installed in the garage or basement with wall inlets at central, convenient locations inside your home. A VacPanTM can be installed in the kitchen for convenient removal of dirt using a broom. A nine meter hose is inserted into the wall inlets and the vacuum is switched on and off using a switch on the hose handle.
A blockage should almost never occur. The diameter of the hose and inlet valve is less than that of the piping in the walls. We also install a sharp 90 degree bend at the back of all inlet valves (all other bends in the system are what we call sweep/slow bends) in order to catch any large object that might want to go into the system. If a blockage do occur (but as mentioned, almost never) we would use a steel tape to remove it from the system.
The vacuum system has a self-cleaning, no maintenance filter, which is permanent and never needs to be replaced or washed. The dirt collection canister must be emptied every 3 or 4 months.
In an existing home tubing will run above the ceiling and if possible, go down inside built-in cupboards and then through the walls to central locations. If necessary and if possible the 50mm tubing will be chased into the wall - this will mean re-plastering and painting.
Convenience - No need to carry a heavy machine up and down stairs, no power leads to struggle with, just insert the 9 meter hose into an inlet and vacuum!
More power - Central Vacuums have larger motors and therefore more power than traditional vacuum cleaners.
Less noise - Because the power unit is located in the garage or basement, vacuuming is much quieter.
Home value - The installation of any permanent appliance in your home - such as a central vacuum system - will increase the value when you decide to sell.
