What Is a Ducted Vacuum System & Why Should You Care?

What Is a Ducted Vacuum System?

Ducted vacuum systems (or Central vacuum systems) are one of the most cost-effective and convenient ways to maintain a clean and healthy home. It comprises a centralised power unit usually tucked away in your garage that supplies ultimate vacuum power to your entire house through inlets that can be placed almost anywhere! Ducted vacuums are powerful yet quiet, have long-reach hoses that can be tucked into your walls with interchangeable tools for all types of cleaning jobs.

The central vacuum unit is the beating heart of your system. The unit consists of a motor that creates suction, an electric switch to control the motor, a filter that traps dirt and debris, a dust collection bag & strategically placed piping and inlets throughout your home. When you turn the system on, the electric switch creates suction that makes the motor turn. Just like a normal vacuum, the central unit draws in air to provide you with ultimate vacuuming power all over your house.

How Does a Ducted Vacuum System Work?

Ducted vacuum systems work by attaching a vacuum cleaner motor to a large pipe via a wall inlet on the outside of your house. This pipe runs throughout your house, opening up into a number of different access points called inlets. If you’re not ready for an entire system install, then installing new central vents will do. The pipe just needs to be able to go between access points for the whole system to work. Once your system is installed, cleaning becomes a breeze! All you need to do is plug in (or pull out) a hose from any wall inlet and then you’re free to clean away without worrying about how much power is being used!

Why Is Going Ducted Better For Your Home?

Ducted vacuum systems have a sealed system which means that allergens and other dirt will not escape from the vacuum like they might with other types of vacuum cleaners. This is great for anyone who suffers from allergies, as it can help improve the air quality in your home. In addition to this, ducted vacuum systems use less power than other types of vacuum cleaners, so you’ll be saving money on your electricity bills in the long run! You’ll save plenty of money in the long run because of their sealed system, 10-15 year lifespan, and the fact that you’ll be using much less power.

How Much Will a Ducted Vacuum Cost?

The cost of a ducted vacuum system depends on how your home is laid out, and what type of central pipe you need installed. However, the average cost of installing a new vent for a new ducted vacuum system is around $2,000-$3,000. With this price, you will have to pay for the central vent and the labour costs of installation.
