Considerations for Choosing Your Central Vacuum System

We design our central vacuum systems with most of the vacuum components inside the walls or floors. The central motor can be installed in a garage, attic, or crawlspace, keeping that noise well away from living areas. 

Central vacuums are extremely powerful and offer superior cleaning over standard vacuums. They also help keep the air free of particulates which can minimize allergies and other health conditions. 

Here are some key things to consider when choosing the best central vacuum system for your home. 

Hose Length and Inlet Valve Placement

How big is your home? Where do you want your inlet valves to be? 

Most standard-size houses (2000 to 3000-square-feet) only need one or two inlet valves per story, depending on square footage. One 30-foot hose should allow you to get through a few rooms, depending on size. 

You can get different hose lengths to suit your chosen setup. Make sure you have accurate measurements of the rooms in your house, considering that you will need to vacuum around some corners and walls.

We can install multiple inlet valves throughout the house, and the typical placement is one for every 600 square feet. Expect to have at least four inlets for a 2000-square-foot home.  

It’s important to note that we can route central vacuum system tubing through and inside the floors.

How do you plan on using your central vacuum system?

There are plenty of different models designed for various purposes, and they can vary in suction, price, and size. 

Central vacuum systems are incredibly versatile and installed in homes as small as apartments and as large as mansions. 

We install these systems in RVs, garages, commercial spaces, and boats as well. If you are getting a central vacuum system for a larger commercial space, we can help you choose one with maximum power and suction.

Central Vacuum System Features and Options

Central vacuum products have a generally similar design, but there are plenty of different features and accessories that you can choose to help you with your specific needs.

Here’s an overview of just some of the features which can help make cleaning up a breeze! 

Central Vacuum Kits

You can purchase specialty kits designed to clean specific types of surfaces — for instance. Some kits can help you with optimal cleaning of wood, vinyl, or upholstery. 

Our central vacuum kits include one hose, a rack, caddy, multiple powerhead tools, and specialty brushes. 

Each kit offers premium cleaning to a specialized surface or set of surfaces and comes with a 5- or 10-year warranty. 


Turbine and electric powerheads offer different benefits; both clean carpeted areas. 

Turbine-powered carpet brushes run off the system’s airflow to deliver reliable, deep-cleaning vacuum performance without additional electricity.

Electric powerheads are motor-driven and provide quick connections for wands and electrical cords, manual carpet height adjustment, and easy maneuverability.


Our retractable hose systems can store up to 50 feet of the central vacuum hose in the tubing within your walls. Hide-a-Hose systems save you from carrying cumbersome vacuums between rooms or upstairs.
