Why is a Central Vacuum Better than a Regular Portable Vacuum?
Financial Upside – Central vacuum systems cost less than the major home appliances and are easy to install. Obviously, they cost more than portable vacuums but we can argue, if we do the math in the long run, it becomes cheaper and more profitable than portables (considering – maintenance, parts, and replacement cost). Central vacuums can also boost / help increase the resale value of your home.
More Power, More Cleaning – Regular vacuum cleaners lack the power central vacuums provide due to their larger, more powerful motor. As a result, you get all kinds of dust out of your building in less time and that helps you deep clean. If you get a wet/dry vacuum – even better to tackle the spills and even do steams.
Healthier – Studies show that often indoor air could be more polluted and harmful to breathe despite our misconception that it is mostly clean. Central vacuums have proven to be great at sucking out all sorts of pollen, bacteria, and pet dander along with harmful dust and dirt particles brought in by kids or pets. This keeps you and your family healthier and away from any harmful allergens.
Convenience All the Way – Central vacuum power units are usually out of sight, and you don’t have to carry them around like the regular vacuums that require you to plug/unplug to vacuum different parts of your home. Especially those difficult-to-get places like the stairs, patio, and garage. The dirt capacity is far greater in central vacuums and it usually requires you to empty it only about three to five times a year.
Noise – Since the power unit is installed remotely (garage or basement), you won’t have to hear and carry the loud noise that comes with the regular vacuum.
To cap it off, central vacuums have a clear edge with all the above benefits we mentioned. And they are far better than regular vacuums, whether it is the inconvenience of carrying them around, plugging-in/out, emptying the container, cleaning difficult areas, or simply doing more cleaning as well as adding more value to your home once installed – definitely something a regular canister vacuum can’t beat.
