Central Vacuum Systems for Beginners


Vacuuming is a necessary chore that many of us don’t look forward to doing. Even though vacuuming is not a very fun activity, there is a way to make it an easier, more hassle-free chore to complete.

The standard portable vacuums that many people have in their homes are noisy, heavy, and even smelly appliances. With central vacuum systems, Pittsburgh homeowners can enjoy an easier to use and versatile system and make vacuuming less of a daunting chore.

How Does Central Vacuum System Work?

central vacuum system is designed to remove all the dirt and debris from your home and send it through the tubing located in the walls where it is deposited in a receptacle located in the garage or basement. Each room is outfitted with inlets that the vacuum hose is attached to for cleaning. When you are done cleaning one room, you can detach the hose and move on to the next room. The hose and the power brush can be stored out of sight when cleaning is complete.

A common misconception that deters people from having a central vacuum system installed is that they think it will require major renovation to their home. In reality, installation only requires the pipes for the system to be fed through the attic, basement, or crawlspace and a hole with an inlet backing plate to be installed, with no need to tear down walls or complete any other major renovations.

Why You Should Get a Central Vacuum System

A central vacuum system can benefit your home in many ways. When cleaning with a central vacuum, you only need to carry around a hose and lightweight power brush around the house rather than a heavy unit like portable vacuums. You are also not limited by an electrical cord or the placement of the outlets. The hose for the central vacuum system can be moved around the room and attached to the conveniently placed inlets throughout your home.

Dirt, dust, and debris are exhausted out of the home, making the air cleaner and with a more powerful motor, a central vacuum cleans deeper and more effectively than a portable vacuum. With a central vacuum you don’t have to replace it every few years like a portable vacuum, saving you time and money.
