7 Reasons To Buy a Central Vacuum System
We've all experienced it at least once in our
lives. Hauling a vacuum cleaner up and down stairs. Trying to navigate under
and between furniture. Examining a room after putting the vacuum cleaner away
and having an odd sense that the room seems dustier than when you began. Worst
of all, finding ourselves back at the stores every few years to purchase yet
another vacuum cleaner because the old one fell apart. Installing a central
vacuum system is the answer to all these complaints. Why, then, don't more
people have one? In a word, profit. The truth is, even though central vacuums
superior to regular vacuums, big name central vacuum manufacturers can make
more money selling portable vacuum cleaners at more regular intervals than
selling their central vacuum systems. These manufacturers have the money to
nationally advertise central vacuums, but they choose not to.
#1 Minimal Vacuum Noise
Most of us are so accustomed to the noisy racket vacuum cleaners make, we don't think twice about turning it on, even if someone is trying to sleep or talk on the phone. We assume that noise just comes with the territory. Believe it or not, noise doesn't "come with the territory" if you have a central vacuum system. In fact, there is an absence of noise because the source of noise (the motor) is not in the house but is centrally located elsewhere, such as the basement or garage. Think of it as the dawning of a new era where vacuuming and life can actually coexist for the first time.
Super Easy to Use
#3 Goodbye Portable Vacuums
Most standard portable vacuum cleaners need to be replaced every few years. By contrast, once a central vacuum system is installed, all you need to worry about is basic maintenance. In a head to head comparison, a central vacuum will always beat out a portable or canister vacuum. Consider these advantages to owning a central vacuum system:
No power cords or extension cords No re-circulated dust particles that trigger allergies (see #4 below) Large trash capacity No filter troubles Longevity of all the parts Costs less than portables bought over time Lightweight and easy to use Never awkward, bulky or off balance
#4 Cleaner Air, Reduced Allergies - PROVEN
One of the first things central vacuum owners realize is how much cleaner the air inside their home is once they start using their systems. Allergy sufferers in particular notice an immediate reduction in their symptoms. In fact, science has proven that using a central vacuum system actually alleviates allergy symptoms. The reason for this is simple: unlike portable vacuums that recycle vacuumed allergens back into the air, the central vacuum system draws these allergens out of the house and into the basement or garage, where they are then exhausted outdoors. Portable vacuum cleaners cannot promise the same results because they do not transport the allergens outside of the living environment.
Furniture and carpets inside the home aren't the only surfaces that collect dust. Nooks and crannies outside the home can benefit from the power and efficiency of a central vacuum system too. The long central vacuum hose makes easy work of cars, trucks, vans, boats, or RV's. Whether your garage is shrouded in cobwebs or is a neatly-organized area for crafts or woodworking, a central vacuum system is ideal. It doesn't stir up dust like broom sweeping and is a lot less cumbersome than dragging a portable machine outside. In fact, 80% of men report they vacuum more when a central vacuum is installed. The most common reason? "It feels more like a power tool than a household appliance."
#6 Powerful Deep Cleaning
The powerful motor in a central vacuum system, which is stored in the basement or garage, remains stationary and cooler, and can be up to three times stronger than standard upright vacuum motors. Unlike portable vacuum cleaners, the central vacuum motor lasts longer, allowing it to do its primary job, which is to provide strong suction through the network of pipes and through the hose. Consequently, central vacuums extract not only surface dust but also the deep grit and particulates that age carpet, thus helping you save your investment.
#7 A Smart Investment
Most shoppers don't regard purchases such as household appliances as investments. Yet installing a central vacuum not only saves money over time, it also adds value to your property. As a long-term investment, dollars spent installing a central vacuum system in a newly built or existing home is money that should come back when the property is sold. Central vacuum systems last longer than portable vacuum cleaners. While most portable vacuum cleaners need to be replaced every few years on average, by contrast, central vacuum owners can usually go ten years before they even think about replacing accessories or scheduling maintenance.
