5 Reasons to Install a Central Vacuum System in Your Newly Constructed Home

Whether you’re touring model homes or you’ve hired an architect to design a one-of-a-kind dream home, a central vacuum system probably isn’t high on your list of must-have features – but it should be. More convenient cleaning and a healthier home are just some of the benefits a built-in central vacuum system provides. East Hampton Vacuums has been installing central vacuum systems for newly constructed homes throughout Long Island for more than 30 years. Offering a wide selection of state-of-the-art central vacuum systems and providing top-notch installation services, East Hampton Vacuums will take the hassle out of cleaning your home and help it maintain that new construction feel for years to come.

Here’s a look at five reasons why you should consider having a central vacuum system installed – and why it will probably be one of the most beloved features in your new home.

The Convenience

There’s nothing more annoying than having to pull out a heavy, clunky, awkward vacuum cleaner, lug it up and downstairs, then plug it into an outlet, only to find that you can’t reach the entire space you’re trying to clean and have to unplug it and find another outlet.

A central vacuum system makes cleaning hassle-free. All you have to do is plug the hose into a built-in inlet, turn it on, and you’re ready to go. You don’t have to wrestle with a heavy machine or worry about finding power outlets to plug into. And, since the length of a standard hose is 30 feet (longer hoses are available, too!), you’ll be able to clean all of the floors, hard-to-reach corners, stairs, and even ceilings in your home with ease! Talk about convenient cleaning!

Deep Cleaning Power

You have to put a lot of time and effort into getting your home clean when you use a standard upright or canister vacuum cleaner. Their motors are housed directly on the unit, so the amount of power they can provide is limited.

With a central vacuum system, the motor is stored in a stationary location, which means they can be outfitted with a lot more power. In fact, the motor on a central vacuum can be up to five times more powerful than a traditional power! The stationary location of the motor also keeps it a lot cooler so the cleaning power isn’t diminished. More power = deeper cleaning. A central vacuum cleaner can easily capture surface dust and dirt, as well as any debris that gets ground into your carpets and upholstery.

A Healthier Home

A built-in central vacuum system not only keeps your home looking neat and clean; it also improves its health! With a traditional vacuum cleaner, the air is recycled, so the dirt, dust, dander, and allergens it sucks up are put back into the air you breathe. Even with the highest quality filtration system, an upright or canister vacuum still puts dirt and allergens back into the air. With a central vacuum, dirt, dust, and allergens are pulled out of your home and stored in a main container that’s stored in a central location, and the exhaust from the system is filtered outside. That means that 100 percent of the dust, pollen, dander, and other allergens they extract are completely removed from your home. Several studies have found that central vacuum systems help to significantly reduce allergy symptoms, such as nasal congestion and irritated eyes. Cleaner air = a healthier environment for you and your family.

Quieter Operation

Not only are standard vacuums big and bulky, but they also tend to be super loud. The motor – the part of the vacuum that produces noise – is housed directly on the unit, hence all the distracting noise. Since the motor of a central vacuum cleaning system is tucked away in a remote location, they offer whisper-quiet operation. All you’ll hear is the gentle whir of air and dirt being sucked up. When you clean with a central vacuum, you won’t have to worry about distracting your entire household.

A Sound Investment

While the initial expense of a central vacuum system may be more than a traditional vacuum cleaner, in the long run, you’ll save great deal of money. These systems last a lot longer than upright and canister vacuums, so you won’t have to worry about buying a new one every few years. Plus, considering all the benefits a central vac offers, it can boost the resale value of your new home if you decide to sell in the future. If you want to make cleaning as convenient as possible and ensure the cleanliness and health of your home, installing a central vacuum system in your new construction is the way to go!
