BENEFITS OF CENTRAL VACUUMS

CENTRAL VACUUM VS. PORTABLES

A central vacuum cleaner offers numerous benefits over a traditional portable vacuum cleaner. Before you buy another portable vacuum cleaner, consider the benefits of central vacuums.

Greater Cleaning Power
Because of its powerful motor and large air flow, central vacuums pick up deep dirt, dust, debris, and even microscopic particles like pollen, mould spores, and dust mites. Central vacuums like VACUFLO eliminate all those dust particles you see in the air after vacuuming with a portable, as well as that familiar “vacuum smell.” Unlike a traditional vacuum cleaner, which recirculates some dirt and particles it picks up into the air, our systems remove 100% of all vacuumed dirt, particles and allergens from the home.

Improved Indoor Air Quality
Because 100% of vacuumed material is removed from the home, indoor air quality is significantly improved. The University of California Davis School of Medicine found that allergy sufferers’ symptoms can be improved by up to 61% when using a central vacuum system.

Convenience and Ease of Cleaning
There is no heavy equipment to lug around, no cords to trip over or catch on furniture, and no clunky unit nicking the furniture and woodwork as you move from room to room. Lightweight hoses and attachments are easy to carry. Convenient outlets placed to your specifications allow quick and efficient cleaning. Quick-clean accessories like Vroom and Spot provide instant access to vacuum power for life’s daily messes!

Quiet Operation
Because the noise from the system is generated in an out-of-the-way area, vacuuming with a central vac system makes less noise than a hairdryer or clothes dryer. Quiet enough to vacuum in the same room as a sleeping child!

Increase in Home Value
A central vacuum can increase a home’s resale value by $1,500 or more. Like other built-in appliances, it is an excellent selling feature.

Easy Installation
Central vacuum systems can be easily fitted in both new and existing homes. Professional installers can complete the job within hours in almost any home.

Cost
A complete central vacuum system can be professionally installed in the average home for less than the cost of many high-end, name-brand portable vacuum cleaners. Because it will provide powerful cleaning for a decade or more, a central vacuum system is more of a wise consumer bargain than a luxury.

CENTRAL VACUUM ADVANTAGES FAQ

How is a Central Vacuum System healthier than a standard portable vacuum?

By design, a portable vacuum’s motor is right in front of you as you vacuum, exhausting dust particles, dander, allergens, and other fine particulates back into your home. A Central Vacuum System from Vacuflo, however, typically has its power unit located outside of the main house (e.g., basement or garage), and most systems exhaust outside of the home, so none of these unhealthy particulates recirculate into the home.

Do Vacuflo Filtered Cyclonic units have to be vented outside?

Most people vent to the outside, although it is not necessary since the dual filtration process ensures that vacuum dust and debris are contained within the system.

How does a central vacuum system help create a healthy home?

With 3-5 times the suction and power of uprights, Vacuflo Central Vacuum Systems capture 100% of all vacuumed dirt, dust, odours, and allergens. Traditional vacuums spread these particles and allergens around your home and recirculate them into the air you breathe. The power of Vacuflo Central Vacuums eliminates microscopic particles and allergens for a cleaner, healthier interior environment.

What are the health benefits a homeowner can expect?

According to the EPA, central vacuums vented outdoors can help decrease exposure to dust mites and other contaminants. A University of California-Davis School of Medicine study has proven that central vacuum systems can improve indoor air quality and reduce allergy symptoms by as much as 61%.

Is indoor air quality really that important?

Yes. According to the American Lung Association, people spend 90% of their time indoors. Today’s homes are tightly sealed for energy efficiency, reducing air exchange and trapping indoor air pollutants caused by building materials, furnishings and household cleaners. Vacuflo Central Vacuums remove 100% of vacuumed dirt, dust, odours and allergens, keeping pollutants from recirculating in the home.

Will the system maintain its power over time?

The powerful performance of a Vacuflo Central Vacuum does not decrease as dirt accumulates in the dirt canister. Vacuflo’s bagless Cyclonic Filtration Technology (CFT) assures the vacuum works at full power.

What is Cyclonic Filtration Technology (CFT)?

Cyclonic Filtration Technology (CFT) is a dual filtration process guaranteed to deliver maximum cleaning power. CFT begins with Cyclonic Separation, a filtration method that uses physics rather than bags or filters to remove dirt particles from an air stream.

What are the benefits of CFT?

CFT ensures sustained cleaning power 100% of the time. Units with permanent cloth filters lost cleaning power in independent testing after picking up just a small amount of test dirt. Vacuflo Filtered Cyclonic units showed a minimal performance drop before stabilizing at 94%. Filtered Cyclonic performance will return to a like-new condition once the filter is replaced. Permanent cloth filter systems, even those with coatings like GORE-TEX and Teflon, cannot be restored to new conditions once dirt and dust are embedded in the filter. Coatings may help reduce embedded dirt but do not eliminate it.

Why is a central vacuum so much more powerful?

If a portable vacuum had a comparable motor, you wouldn’t want to push it through the house. The genius of central vacuum systems is putting a powerful vacuum unit in a stationary location and allowing access to this powerful vacuum from the inlets located throughout the home.

How does a central vacuum compare to portables in terms of performance?

With up to five times the suction and power of uprights, Vacuflo Products’ Central Vacuum Systems capture 100% of all vacuumed dirt, dust, odours, and allergens. After vacuuming with most uprights, it’s typical to smell odours and see dust particles reflected in the sunlight. Traditional vacuums spread these particles and allergens around your home and recirculate them into the air you breathe. The cyclonic power of a central vacuum from Vacuflo eliminates these odours and dust particles for a cleaner home with cleaner air.

How does a central vacuum compare in terms of convenience?

With a Vacuflo Central Vacuum System, there is no heavy equipment to lug around. A lightweight, flexible hose, wands and attachments will reach even the tightest spots and furthest corners of the home. Homeowners can plug the hose into the nearest inlet for easy and convenient cleaning.

Is it easy to move the hose from room to room?

Yes. Hoses are lightweight, durable and specially reinforced to resist crushing and kinking. They are 1-3/8” in diameter for maximum airflow and feature a comfort grip handle with a 360-degree swivel for ease of use.

Can I use the system in the garage?

Yes. If the power unit is located in the garage, you can attach the hose using the convenient onboard valve (Filtered Cyclonic) or elect to have an inlet valve located in the garage. The system can be used to clean vehicles, golf carts, RVs, boats, and workshop areas easily without the hassle of transporting a shop vacuum or portable vacuum.

Is a Vacuflo Central Vacuum System worth the cost?

The average consumer has four vacuum products in their home at one time. Maintaining and replacing portable vacuums can exceed the one-time cost of a central vacuum installation. However, the actual cost-benefit happens over time. A central vacuum saves money by prolonging the life of carpeting, drapes, and furniture and adding to a home’s resale value.

What are the benefits of owning a central vacuum?

A central vacuum system does a better job of cleaning because it has a more powerful motor. It creates a healthier home by picking up dust and allergens a traditional portable vacuum cannot. A central vacuum system is also quieter since the power unit is located outside the home’s living space. Central vacuum owners appreciate the system’s versatility and convenience.

Which parts of my Vacuflo Central Vacuum are covered under the Lifetime Limited Warranty?

The Limited Lifetime Warranty covers all permanently installed components. The Hide-A-Hose system carries a separate warranty.

I just moved into a home with a VACUFLO. What is the warranty?

The original manufacturer’s warranty is for the original homeowner.

Will a central vacuum add value to my home?

Central vacuum systems are an integral part of the home and add an exciting convenience feature when it comes time to sell.
