What is a central vacuum?
A central vacuum cleaner / system (also known as Built-In, In-Built or Ducted Vacuum System) is a type of vacuum cleaner, installed into a building. It can be installed in a home, office, commercial building, car valet which can range from of 50m2 to 10000m2 the possibilities are endless.
Central vacuum systems are designed to remove dirt and debris from homes and buildings, sending dirt particles through tubing (PVC Ducting) installed inside the walls to the power unit.
The power unit with a dust bin / bucket at the bottom of the unit is a permanent fixture, typically located in the basement, garage, under stairs, utility rooms, and cupboards. Some power units can also be installed outside on an exterior wall with a cover or shroud protecting it.
Inlet valves are installed in walls throughout the building that attach to a light weight hose and other central vacuum accessories to remove dust, particles, and small debris from interior rooms.
Hoses are normally between 9 and 12 meters long.
CLEANING YOUR HOME has never been easier, quieter or healthier.
A VACUUM ONE® Central Vacuum System will eliminate dirt, improve air quality and get you back to enjoying life, in no time at all.
When it comes to vacuuming, the most important component is what actually gets removed – things that may harm you and your family. Most portable vacuums re-circulate fine dirt back into the air, leaving allergy causing dust, harmful mites and pollens lingering in the room. VACUUM ONE® Central Vacuum Systems produce healthy, clean air because each unit is equipped with a highly efficient filter and all dust, mites & pollens are removed from the living area. Our unit will not only get your home sparkling clean, it will also protect your family by minimizing germs and allergens - which reduces allergy related illnesses - like Asthma.
HOW IT WORKS
Typically, the power unit is installed outside the main living areas, like a utility room or garage. The power unit is connected to a system of PVC ducting/pipes placed between walls and beams, either during construction or fitted to your existing home. Inlet valves are strategically placed throughout the house. In most cases, 2 - 3 inlet valves will be sufficient, but our expert installers will advise you on this.
Simply plug the lightweight soft vacuum hose into an inlet valve and let VACUUM ONE® Central Vacuum Systems do the hard work for you.
