What is a Central Vacuum System?

A centralized vacuum system is an easier, quieter and more convenient way to keep your floors clean. By enlisting the help of Knight Security Systems for installing a central vacuum system, you can vacuum your home without the burdens of a bulky vacuum cleaner – no hauling, no pushing, and no pulling hair out of the track!


How Central Vac Works


Here is how it works: With a central vacuum system, you use a 35 foot hose (with traditional vacuum attachments) to vacuum the home. The debris is suctioned through the hose and into inlet valves placed strategically throughout the home, which are networked from the power unit. The power unit is normally placed in the garage or another designated location.


What happens to the vacuumed debris? It is routed into a canister near the power unit that the owner empties every couple of months. This is, without a doubt, the most convenient way to vacuum! It is also the healthier way; studies show that the air quality in homes with central vac is much better than homes without, because the dust is not re-circulated back into the home.


Vacuum Any Surface in the Home


Plus, our system includes the VacPan feature; it ensures that you will never have to bend over with a dust pan and small broom again! Vacuum floors of all types, including carpet, hardwood and tile; vacuum curtains and drapes; even vacuum countertops, if you need to. When there’s no heavy, bulky upright vacuum cleaner to lug around, you can reach places you never thought possible.
