You’ve made the decision to upgrade to a central vacuum system—congratulations! That’s step one and an excellent decision indeed. It will change your life. Just think, you never have to lug a heavy vacuum all around the house, up and down the stairs again. We have been transforming Portland-area homes for over three decades by installing central vacuum systems, and we’ve been advocating for how it makes your life much simpler. As you can imagine, we know our stuff. That’s why we’re here now to help you in the next step in your decision making—figuring out how to choose the right central vacuum power unit for your home.
At Gary’s Vacuflo, we offer several different types of central vacuum power units that we’ll tell you about a little more in-depth. One thing to note is that, whereas they all may be different, they’re all rated by square footage. It’s important to know the square footage of your home layout and your system needs before choosing a central vacuum power unit.
All central vacuum power units below are full-featured. They’re also powerful, which ensures a more superior cleaning experience than what you’re used to. Let’s take a look at some recommended options to help you choose which central vacuum power unit is right for you, your family, your home, and your needs.
Vacuflo True Cyclonic Power Units fully and effectively clean your home by separating the dirt from the airflow. How does it do this? It doesn’t utilize bags or filters—that’s how powerful it is. Furthermore, because it’s built like this, it doesn’t lose its power of effectiveness as dirt accumulates in the system. It was created to combat that.
So it ensures that 100 percent of the allergens and dust vacuumed up from your home are fully eliminated. It’s also at its maximum power all of the time. Furthermore, it’ll save you money in the long run, as you’ll never have to purchase bags or filters ever again. If you’re one of those people who cannot stop sneezing when changing the vacuum bag or filter, this option may be the one for you.
There are six different models of the True Cyclonic that work well for homes from 3,000 square feet to 22,000 square feet. The models, from small to large home square footage, are 260, 466Q, 566Q, 760 Dual Motor, 960 Dual Motor, and MaxAir Dual Motor.
It’s right there in the name—the way that Filtered Cyclonic power units remove the dirt and dust it vacuums is by filtering. First, the unit uses cyclonic separation, and then it uses a pleated filter for secondary filtration. The filter found in these power units is long-lasting, and the performance of the system won’t become less powerful as dirt accumulates.
Just like the True Cyclonic power unit, all of allergens and dust vacuumed up are fully eliminated from your home. The motor on this system is extremely powerful and delivers a strong suction. As this power unit utilizes cyclonic separation, it’s perfect for no-vent installations.
There are five different models of the Filtered Cyclonic that you can choose from, depending on the square footage of your home: (from small to large home square footage) FC300, FC550, FC650, and FC1550 Dual Motor. If you live in a home on the smaller size, this may be the option for you, as its smallest model is recommended for up to 2,500 feet. The largest system is recommended for up to 18,000 feet.
DB Replaceable Filter Bag
Never want to have to touch dirt again? The outside of the CleanShield bag found in the DB Replaceable Filter Bag is never exposed to dirt. This means that you’ll never have to accidentally touch it. The triple-layer filter bags found within this system don’t let any dirt escape. All you have to do with this central vacuum power unit is remove, seal, and replace the bag. That’s it! Just by doing that, your bag will be at its cleanest.
Just like the other two models, all of the allergens and dust that are vacuumed are fully eliminated. Furthermore, even the smallest of particles, measuring as small as 0.3 microns, can be filtered by this bag. There’s a high-performance motor that delivers a powerful vacuum. Finally, if you choose this option, it comes with a lifetime limited warranty.
The DB Replaceable Filter Bag central vacuum power unit system works well in homes that are on the smaller size. It comes in two standard models, the DB5000, which is recommended for use in homes up to 5,000 square feet, and the DB7000, recommended for use in homes up to 7,000 square feet.
