When you think of integrated home technology, a central vacuum might not be the first thing that comes to mind. Frankly, you might not even consider a vacuum to be “technology.” However, based on the dictionary definition — “the use of science in industry, engineering, etc., to invent useful things or to solve problems; a machine, piece of equipment, method, etc., that is created by technology” — it technically does fall into that category, as a tool built and designed to aid in completing a task. So now that we’ve classified a central vacuum as technology, let’s get into why you should be thinking about central vacuums this spring cleaning season.
What Exactly is a Central Vacuum? And How Does it Work?
A central vacuum is a system installed within the infrastructure of your home that makes cleaning a whole lot easier. With a power fixture and collection container usually installed in the basement or garage, you’ll have strategically placed ports or inlets installed in walls throughout the house. (Don’t worry, they’re hardly any more intrusive than a power outlet.) All you have to do is attach power hoses or other accessories to those ports, and you have a vacuum in any room of the house!
What’s So Great About Central Vacuums?
Who wants to lug a big, heavy, cumbersome vacuum around the house during spring cleaning? Rather than having to carry a huge machine around the house, you can have the machine anchored in the basement or garage and only need to carry the lightweight hose around, or sometimes nothing at all! One of those accessories mentioned above is a floorboard opening that will let you just sweep debris over against the wall and it’ll be sucked right up! Another nice perk of central vacuums is that they’re a lot quieter than traditional vacuums, so you won’t have to worry about startling your kids or your pets. Generally speaking, central vacuums make it much easier to remove dust, dirt, and allergens from your house, making it an overall cleaner and more comfortable place to live.
While central vacuums are most frequently installed in houses during the initial construction phase, adding one to an existing house is totally possible. Whether you’re building anew, would like to install a central vacuum in your home, or simply have questions about central vacuums, give us a call — we’ll be happy to help in whatever way we can!
