Can Central Vacuum Systems Be Installed in Existing Homes?

You may think that the only time to install central vacuum systems is while building a new home. Certainly, it is a good idea to include one of these innovative systems in a new home design.

You will be pleased to know that it is possible to retrofit a central vacuum system to your existing building without extensive renovations and with minimal inconvenience. Here is a step-by-step guide of how this can be done.

Step 1: Inspection and Options

Expert professionals will inspect your home and advise on the most effective way to install a central vacuum system, and provide you with all the available options and pricing.

Installations in constructions with single-storey buildings with accessible basements, crawl spaces and/or attics will be easier. Double-storey or multi level homes are more involved but with our experience and skill still imminently possible.

Step 2:  Installation

Once you have investigated and agreed on the best option from those presented, the installation team will take over. They will handle the entire installation from start to finish. Even for more complex installations, the process will usually not take more than one day.

Once the installation is completed, you will be able to access your system via strategically located inlet valves.

Step 3:  Start Benefiting From Your Central Vacuum System

To use the system, all you need to do is plug in the hose with the appropriate tool attached, and you are ready to go. Most homes will have one inlet value per floor with an average of three inlets per house. The inlet valves will therefore be installed at the most convenient and accessible places.

You will be able to move from room to room with nothing more than a lightweight, flexible hose to carry. No need to push and pull on a heavy upright or canister vacuum. The whole system gives you superior suction power and maneuverability, leading to a sparkling clean home with minimal fuss and effort.
