Central Vac System
Statically placed inlets throughout the house provide coverage to clean all the surfaces of your home. Usually 1 inlet can cover 700-850 sq/ft of home with a conventional system or up to 2,000 sq/ft with a Hide-A-Hose system. Piping concealed in the crawlspace and attic connects each inlet and is ran to wherever the Power Unit will be located (usually the garage or mechanical room).
The Central Vacuum Power Unit is the heart of the system. With 3-5 times the power of a portable vacuum and the added advantage of being located outside the living area of your home, a central vacuum results in a higher performing , quieter way to clean your home. All dirt, debris and other vacuumed material are collected in the central power unit eliminating the re-circulation of any dust back into your home. Coltrin Central Vac recommends Vacuflo Power Units because they carry a Lifetime Warranty and offer a variety of filtration methods.
A lightweight, crush-proof hose and high preforming attachments complete your system. Various models are available depending on your personal preference and your homes needs. The Attachment Sets includes a hose, powerhead for carpet, floor brush for hard surfaces, dusting brush, upholstery brush, crevice tool, extension wand, hose hanger and attachment caddy. All sets can be customized to meet your homes specific needs. Other popular accessories include hose sock, garage kit and stair tool.
Central vacuum systems can be installed in both new construction as well as existing homes. For retrofits, your central vacuum system can usually be installed in less than a day with no structural modifications needed! Central Vacuum tubing is run through the walls in your house to strategically placed inlet valves. The valves will provide you complete access to all your living space with your central vacuum hose. The power unit will then be installed in a basement, garage or utility room.
