Types of Central Vac Systems
With central vacuuming systems becoming more popular, more options have become available, with a wide variety of manufacturers and models to choose from. The two main product decisions you'll have to make when purchasing your central vacuuming system are thetype of power unit and power brush.
The two primary types of central vacuuming systems are filtered and cyclonic. According to CentralVacuum.com, the type of system you choose plays a major role in the longevity and efficiency of your central vac unit. It's important to remember that whenever you have a unit that collects dirt or debris, that some type of filtration system is required. What you are looking for in a good central vac system is it's ability to minimize dirt buildup, while at the same time maximizing airflow. This allows for maximum vacuuming power. Accumulation of dirt or debris in your vacuuming bag or filter is a major contributing factor to the eventual breakdown and limited lifespan of the machine. Be sure that you clean your system regularly in accordance with the manufacturer's guidelines.
The main differences between Cyclonic and Filtered Systems. Cyclonic systems use a centrifugal, tornado-like force and gravity to separate impurities from the air taken in by the vacuum, and normally deposit the dirt into a canister (although a bag may be used with some systems). Filtered systems utilize a variety of filters such as a cloth, screen, foam or paper to separate dirt from the air taken in by the vacuum. with any filtered system, be sure to clean and change the filters on a regular basis.
In regards to the power unit, 2 main things need to be considered:
When deciding whether you want a canister unit or bag system, it really is a personal decision. The dirt receptacle will either consist of a plastic canister or a replaceable bag. Both systems are amply efficient -- it's simply a matter of which you would prefer. With either choice, you'll most likely be disposing dirt and debris a lot less often than you would be with a traditional upright portable vacuum.
For the power brush unit, choices normally available are either an air-driven power brush or an electrical one. The power brush is the part of the vacuum that will actually be doing the "dirty work" of cleaning your home. Again, which type you decide on is mostly a matter of personal preference. To help you decide, an air-driven or turbine system typically costs less to install since you won't require electricity being wired into all of the wall inlets that will be required of electrical units. when it comes to choosing the vacuum accessories, you'll have a wide variety of convenient and efficient tools such as upholstery attachments and automatic dustpans to choose from.
Most central vac systems aren't cheap. Most systems typically cost upwards of $1,000 due to the fact you'll need to have the system installed. While you may be asking yourself why you would choose this type of system over a traditional portable vacuum, its important to consider the long term value of a central vac system including the reduced cost of replacement bags, the ease and convenience of vacuuming more often resulting in a cleaner, healthier home and the added value a central vac system adds to your homes value.
