The Central Vacuum Installation Process

Any home or building can have a central vacuum system installed. 2" PVC piping is installed inside of the walls (between the stud space) and ran back to either the garage or mechanical room of the house or building, where the main central vacuum power unit is mounted. The central vacuum power unit creates the high suction power for vacuuming and collects all of the dirt in a bucket or large paper bag. The motor is vented to the outside of the house to eliminate any dust from escaping inside of the home and to reduce the sound of the unit.

The Control: Vacuum Hose

Central Vacuum Hoses

 

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
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.



The Connectivity: Pipe and Inlets

Central Vacuum Inlet

 

Purpose
Vacuum Pipe connects the main unit to the wall inlets. 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.


Main Central Vacuum Unit

Central Vacuum Systems

 

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.
