A central vacuum system is always a wise investment. Not only does it increase the ease of cleaning, but it also increases the value of your home. Not all central vacuums are alike though, and the buyer should be aware of the cheaper models that tend not to fare as well in the long run. A Canavac or beam central vacuum would be the best models to choose from due to their stringent manufacturing standards and long lasting motors. The warranties on these central vacuum systems are the best in the industry and are far above the likes of cheaper brands like frigidaire, airvac, and eureka.
The benefits of owning a beam central vacuum far outweigh the costs of installing one in your home. First off you don’t have to worry about lugging around a heavy canister or upright vacuum. The easy portability of the hose and power head, and the valves throughout your home make the accessibility unrivaled. Second, the lives of central vacuum systems are much longer than the average portable vacuum. Beam central vacuum systems have been known to last up to 30 years if maintenance is done and the unit is properly cared for. Even if the system does break, central vacuum parts are easily available through your local vacuum shop or centralvacuumdirect.com.
The health benefits of owning a central vacuum should also weigh into your decision. Beam central vacs have been proven to reduce indoor allergens, leading to a cleaner living space and less irritation due to dust and pollen. The potential positive ramifications on your health alone should help you decide in your purchase of a beam central vac.
You have a lot of models to choose from, but we always recommend the serenity series. These units are a lot quieter than the beam classic series, and are much better suited for residential use. Within the beam serenity series you have the option of 4 different models. The 325c, 375c, 395c, and the largest beam 3500c. The unit you choose should be based on the square footage of your home and your unique suction needs. For the majority of homes that are under 5000 sq. ft. the beam 375c would work. This unit is rated up to 7000 sq.ft. and can handle any of the cleaning challenges it may face.
All of these different models should be paired with either a beam attachment kit, or a quality attachment kit made by canavac. Both of these brands manufacture the best attachment kits on the market with the best warranties. If you’re looking for longevity in your system, look for these brands. A lot of times homeowners will go with the cheaper option (only cheaper by $100-$200 overall) and then be faced with system failure well before the vacuum should fail. The correct central vacuum accessories should always be paired with the right central vacuum. This will make sure your getting the most out of your investment.
