Central vs. Portable?
A central vacuum cleaner offers numerous benefits over a traditional portable vacuum cleaner. Before you buy another portable vacuum cleaner, take a look at the benefits of central vacuums.
Greater Cleaning Power
Because of its powerful motor and large air flow, central vacuums pick up deep down dirt, dust and debris, even microscopic particles like pollen, mold spores and dust mites. Central vacuums eliminate all those dust particles you see in the air after vacuuming with a portable as well as that familiar “vacuum smell.” Unlike a traditional vacuum cleaner, which recirculates into the air some of the dirt and particles it picks up, a central vacuum removes 100% of all vacuumed dirt, particles and allergens from the home.
Improved Indoor Air Quality
Because 100% of vacuumed material is removed from the home, indoor air quality is significantly improved. In fact, the University of California Davis School of Medicine found that allergy sufferers’ symptoms can be improved up to 61% when using a central vacuum system.
Convenience and Ease of Cleaning
No heavy equipment to lug around, no cords to trip over or catch on furniture, no clunky unit nicking the furniture and woodwork as you move from room to room. Lightweight hoses and attachments are easy to carry. Convenient outlets placed to your specifications allow quick and efficient cleaning. Quick-clean accessories like Vroom and Spot provide instant access to vacuum power for life’s daily messes!
Because the noise from the system is generated in an out-of-the-way area, vacuuming with a central vac system makes less noise than a hairdryer or clothes dryer. Quiet enough to vacuum in the same room as a sleeping child!
Increase in Home Value
A central vacuum can increase resale value of a home by $1500 or more. Like other built-in appliances, it is an excellent selling feature.
Both new and existing homes can be easily fitted with a central vacuum system. Professional installers can complete the job in almost any home in a matter of hours.
A complete central vacuum system can be professionally installed in the average home for less than the cost of many high-end, name-brand portable vacuum cleaners. Because it will provide powerful cleaning for a decade or more, a central vacuum system is more of a wise consumer bargain than a luxury.
