Conventional Systems

How a Central Vacuum System Works

Simply plug in the hose and experience all the benefits of a central vacuum. Installs in new construction and existing homes.

The central vacuum system is made up of individual components with each component playing an important role in reducing the owner’s workload. The owner doesn’t have to carry around a bulky appliance since the motor is stationary. Since the dust and debris are removed from the living area and emitted outside, there’s no unpleasant smell or re-circulated dust. The lightweight hose makes it easy to just plug into an inlet and start cleaning. The individual components of a central vacuum system are explored below:

The Core: Vacuum Unit

Purpose
At the core of the system is the central vacuum power unit. A powerful motor provides strong suction and deep cleaning, while the filter separates debris.

How it Works
The vacuum unit is located in a remote location such as the garage or basement. The vacuum motor pulls air through the pipes and hose, and all the dust, debris, paper, hair, coins, and even small toys accidentally vacuumed are captured and retained in the filter. The exhausted air then is quite clean and is either vented outside or within the area. Depending on the type and capacity of the filter used, it should be replaced every three months to a year. The vacuum is powered on when a vacuum hose is inserted into an inlet within the home.

Options

  1. Filtration. Disposable or permanent filters.
  2. Power. 110 or 240 volt. Units available for every size home.
  3. Quality. Metal or plastic, name brand components or not.
  4. Sound. Ranges from loud to conversational noise level.

The Control: Vacuum Hose

Purpose
Central vacuum hoses are lightweight, flexible, and crushproof. They come in a variety of lengths, and are the only part of the system taken in hand throughout the home and can be used to clean any surface of the home.

How it Works
Traditional Vacuum Hoses: The long hose has two ends. The wall end gets plugged into one of the vacuum inlet ports throughout the home. Some hoses are designed to cause the suction to start immediately when plugged in. Other hoses are fitted with an on/off switch for the suction on the handle end of the hose.
Hide-A-Hose: This hose is contained in the pipes of the system until it is pulled out for use. When done vacuuming, the hose is retracted back into the pipes by the suction of the vacuum.

Options

  1. Traditional and Hide-A-Hose available in many lengths.
  2. Traditional hose systems can use a variety of hose types.
  3. Electric hose (traditional style) powers electric vacuum head.
  4. Hide-A-Hose available with and without on/off handle switch.

The Connectivity: Pipe and Inlets

Purpose
Special vacuum pipe connects the main unit to the wall inlet valves. The inlet valves, or ports, connect to the hose and enable the suction to be turned on and off.

How it Works
The two-inch diameter PVC pipe begins at the main unit and splits off into different areas of the house. It goes into a wall and connects to the back of an inlet. One inlet can cover a lot of area, sometimes over 1,000 square feet. A Hide-A-Hose inlet with a 50-foot hose can cover 2,300 square feet. Traditional inlets are available with 110 volts for the use of powerful carpet cleaners; Hide-A-Hose does not have that option. All inlets have a low voltage wire connected that turns the suction unit on-and-off.

Options

  1. Traditional inlets come in a variety of colors and styles.
  2. Traditional inlets available with a 110-volt connection.
  3. Hide-A-Hose inlets come in three colors.
  4. Hide-A-Hose inlets are typically mounted higher.

The Cleaning: Vacuum Tools

Purpose
Connecting any of the numerous specialty accessories to the hose allows deep and efficient cleaning on all surfaces of the home.

How it Works
There are many different types of accessories available for cleaning any surface in your home. The most common are the two types of carpet brush heads: electric and air-driven. Air-driven brushes utilize the suction to spin the turbine that spins the belt and brush. Electric brushes use a motor to turn the brush, which allows the air to be free to penetrate deep into the carpet. Aside from brushes, there are a variety of other accessories that can be used throughout the home for various purposes, such as de-shedding pets, mopping floors, cleaning blinds, vacuuming cars, and more. These accessories can be attached to the hose itself or to extenders if more length is needed.

Hide-A-Hose Systems

Solving the problem of storing the hose

The Hide-A-Hose retractable hose management system stores the hose in the pipe. Pull out to use it, then simply let the suction pull it back in.

Our Showroom in Los Gatos has a live working Hide-A-Hose System for customers to demo and try.

With the Hide-A-Hose system you will never need to carry or store bulky vacuum hoses. Simply pull out the amount of hose you need from the inlet valve, connect your cleaning wand (with attachment) and begin vacuuming.

When you have finished vacuuming, detach the cleaning wand from the hose, then the suction from the central vacuum power unit effortlessly retracts the hose into the SmartTube™ system hidden behind the wall. With the ability to store up to 50 feet of hose, one wall connection can cover up to 2,300 square feet vacuuming space.

Homeowners also benefit from the cleaner air made possible since central vacuum units are located outside of the living space and do not re-circulate allergens or dust mites. Central vacuums are also are quieter and three to five times more powerful than portable vacuums.
