5 Benefits of Central Vacuums

Going through the process of vacuuming can be quite the process with a portable vacuum. They’re typically heavy and inconvenient, smelly, and costly to have to replace every few years. Beyond that, once you’re finally done vacuuming, you’re left wondering just how clean your carpet actually is.

Installing a central vacuum can be solution to all of these problems. Take a look at all the other benefits provided by central vacuum systems to see how they can transform the cleaning process as you begin deep cleaning for the holidays.

Easy to Use

You no longer have to haul out a heavy canister or upright vacuum. This makes central vacuums lightweight and never awkward, bulky, or off balance.

Not only are central vacuum cleaners much easier to store, they’re also much easier to use. You don’t have to worry about using any extension cords, the trash capacity, filter troubles, or winding up long power cords.

Central vacuums make cleaning as painless as possible. They have a wide range of access to all of the hard to reach spots. They also include many accessories to clean every nook and cranny in your home. There is no other vacuum that will allow you to clean as efficiently and effectively.

Quieter When in Use

Vacuuming is typically a job that creates a lot of noise and disruption for others in the house. With many people working from home, and more children doing their schooling from home, it can really hard to find a time to vacuum and not disturb others.

Central vacuum cleaners are much quieter to use, allowing you to vacuum whenever you want, even when a baby is sleeping. The motor is typically located in the garage, basement, or attic so central vacuums make little to no noise beyond the sound of them sucking all of the dirt and debris out of your carpet.

Cleaner Indoor Air and Reduced Allergens

Most vacuum cleaners merely recirculate allergens back into your home with each use and leave your carpet looking cleaner, when in actuality a lot of the dirt and debris is still hidden. They reintroduce these particles back into the air through their exhaust.

Central vacuum cleaners extract the dust out of the house directly into the main power unit to be taken outside your home. They are also generally much stronger than the motor in a portable vacuum, which gives your home a deeper clean.

This can be extremely beneficial to those who suffer from extreme allergies, or respiratory/breathing issues because of their ability to eliminate dust particles and odors in living areas.


Vacuum cleaners must be replaced on a pretty regular basis, unlike central vacuum cleaners which have a much longer lifespan. This is primarily because their motor is kept in basements, garages, and attics that allow them to stay cool in wide open spaces and allow them to keep stronger suction for much longer.

This makes central vacuum cleaners a great investment. Instead of regularly re-purchasing new vacuums, you can make the investment in one that will stand the test of time.

Beyond that, they also increase the resale value of your home without having to invest much more than the cost of a regular portable vacuum.

Not only do central vacuums have a longer longevity, they also help to extend the longevity of your carpets. With 2 times more powerful suction they are able to more deeply clean the carpet and protect it from wear and tear.

Easy Installation

Despite what many people assume, vacuum cleaners are very easy to install. They don’t require any demolition or tearing down of walls, but simply installing a covered pipe.

They can be installed in any home, new or existing. Installation is easy to plan and can be accomplished in less than a day in most cases.

A Central Vacuum Could be the Answer to your Allergy Problems

If you or someone in your family suffers from indoor allergy problems, your vacuum cleaner could be part of the problem. Traditional vacuums don’t completely remove the dust and allergens that are making your lives miserable. Unless you are using a central vacuum system, you have probably noticed the “vacuum smell” when you try to clean. This occurs when fine dust is recirculated into the room around you instead of being removed. With a central vacuum, that dust is completely expelled from your home, allowing you and your family to breathe freely. Studies have shown that a central vacuum system can improve indoor air quality and lead to a healthier home. One such study found that allergy sufferers who switched to central vacuums experienced better sleep, fewer nasal issues, reduced eye problems, and other substantial health benefits.1

Along with making your family healthier, central vacuum systems typically last much longer than conventional vacuums and require less maintenance during their lifetime. With a conventional vacuum, you might have to empty the bag or canister twice or more during one cleaning session. There are also filters to clean, belts to change, and often you have to regularly seek a professional for repairs or just break down and buy a new unit. With a central vacuum, you only need to empty or change filters a few times a year, and systems often last 20 or even 30 years.

None us enjoy the sound of a loud traditional vacuum. Luckily, central vacs are much quieter. The power unit and collection container are located in a utility space away from the area where you are vacuuming, so your family won’t be disturbed by loud motors. This also allows for greater suction, because the stationary units aren’t limited by weight. You can pick up debris that your traditional vacuum couldn’t dream of moving. You are also much less likely to damage your furniture with a central vacuum hose, because you aren’t carrying around all of that weight.


Healthier air quality, more power, quieter operation, and less maintenance? That sounds good so far! You might be thinking, “What’s the catch?” The catch is that a central vacuum system needs to be installed. Luckily, we have the experts that can design and install the perfect central vacuum system for any home. We can also help you choose the right accessories to help you live your best life.
