Central Vacuum Power Units
The Power Unit to your Central Vacuum is the heart of your entire system. There are many different manufacturers to choose from, and plenty more parts you may need to keep it running efficiently in the future. Some power units use vacuum bags, some have bagless canisters, and filters are an important aspect of your machine as well.
One of the best features of Central vacuums is keeping indoor air pollutants and allergens out of the air your family breaths. The power unit, typically located in the garage, stores harmful dust and particles and vents remaining, filtered air outside your home. Even the most expensive upright and canister vacuums on the market can't keep you completely out-of-contact with these pollutants. So Central vacuums are a huge benefit to have in your home.
Maintaining Your Power Unit
There are a couple things to know about your central vacuum power unit. Since your wall unit is the most important aspect of your central vacuum system, it needs to be maintained like you would with any home appliance. Filters should be changed, canisters emptied, and your power unit cleaned. In some cases, wiring and even your motor could be replaced to keep your system running at peak cleaning-power.
