​Why Should I get a Central Vacuum System?


Vacuuming is a household chore that needs to be done but is not one that many of us enjoy doing. It is a noisy and inconvenient task that can also become expensive when it comes time to replace your vacuum every few years.

If you want to get rid of the smelly, heavy, and noisy inconvenience that a portable vacuum can bring, you should consider your central vacuum options in Pittsburgh.

A common misconception people have about installing a central vacuum system is that it will require a major renovation. The installation only requires one hole covered with an inlet backing plate and with the pipes for the system being fed through the attic, basement, or a crawlspace, the need to tear down walls is eliminated. In addition to the relatively simple installation, a central vacuum system can bring many benefits to your home and your wallet.

1. Easy to use- This type of system is not only easy on your home during installation, it is also very easy to use. 

Rather than dragging around a heavy canister or bulky portable vacuum, a central vacuum system can eliminate the need for this bulky equipment, making the chore of vacuuming less daunting.

2. Versatile- A central vacuum can reach more places and a wider variety of surface compared to a typical portable vacuum. This is because of the extensive accessories available for use with a central vacuum system. from long hoses to tools that can be used for cleaning vehicles and even boats. These tools can also make cleaning areas like the garage easier since they don't stir up dust like a broom.

3. Cost Effective- Unlike portable vacuum cleaners that need to be replaced every few years, central vacuum systems only need to be maintenance once they are installed. Not only do their parts last longer, but they also cost less to replace than the cost of continuously replacing a portable vacuum.

4. Cleaner Air- Central vacuum systems extract the dirt, dust, and debris out of the house which is then sent into the main power unit in the garage or the basement where they are then exhausted outside of the home. The exhaust on a portable vacuum recycles allergens back into the air inside the home.

5. Cleaner Home- The motors in central vacuums can be up to three times stronger than those in portable vacuums. Central vacuum motors also stay much cooler because they are stored in stationary locations in the garage or basement, allowing them to last much longer than portable vacuums. This allows the central vacuum to provide strong suction, removing not only the debris and dust on the surface, but also removing the deeper grit and other particulates that can age your carpet.
