The Benefits of Having a Ducted Vacuum System in Your Home

Posted by on May 13, 2015 in Uncategorized | Comments Off on The Benefits of Having a Ducted Vacuum System in Your Home

A ducted or central vacuum system is a good upgrade to consider for your home, and something to think about adding to a new home construction. There are many advantages to a ducted or central vacuum system, some of which you might not have considered. For yourself or for someone in your family, note a few of those advantages here.

1. They eliminate the need for a heavy vacuum cleaner

Not having to haul around a heavy vacuum cleaner can be a great benefit for yourself or someone else in your family. For example, if you have an elderly parent who wants to stay in their own home but whose strength is failing, you might consider having a ducted vacuum system installed in their home. They would not need to use a standard vacuum cleaner any longer but their house will still be clean.

This is also a good consideration for anyone with health or strength issues, such as those with arthritis, back problems, or who for any reason may struggle with a heavy vacuum that would need to be used in their entire house.

2. They have higher vacuuming power

When you use a typical portable vacuum cleaner, not all of the debris and dust that it vacuums actually winds up in the bag or canister. The rollers can only pull up so much debris and the suction power of the vacuum is not strong enough to pull up everything touched by the rollers. With a ducted vacuum system, everything that is vacuumed from your home is deposited outside the home, so you have a higher vacuuming power.

This is why it’s healthier to choose this type of system, as a standard portable vacuum is very limited in its cleaning power and often leave pet hair and dander, human hair and shed skin cells, and large amounts of dust and dirt and other irritants behind. For those with allergies or breathing problems, this can be an important consideration.

3. Increased resale value

Adding something to your home that makes it cleaner and that makes it easier on homeowners almost always increases the home’s resale value. If you’re thinking of putting your home on the real estate market and need to do something to make it stand out from the crowd or from other homes in your area, you might consider a ducted vacuum system. This is especially true if your home is located in an area prone to excessive dust or pollution, or if it’s a very large home that would take hours for someone to otherwise vacuum by hand.
