Central Vacuum Repair | Central Vacuum Service | Local Central Vacuum dealer
The demand for a central vacuum systems are high because they require very little maintenance when compared to some of the more traditional types of vacuums. However, it's important to avoid confusing "minimal" maintenance requirements with "zero" maintenance requirements, if the condition of your central vacuum isn't checked on a regular basis, it will likely deteriorate to the point that it will no longer function effectively and central vacuum repair will be required. This is why we always tell our clients, that an annual central vacuum service is highly recommended to ensure their system continues to function at optimum capacity.
There are many reasons why your central vacuum system may not be working well. From motors to clogs to gaskets, and more, so we begin with a service call in which we thoroughly examine the components that make up your central vacuum system to find the cause(s) of the problem.
Good maintenance is crucial to your central vacuum unit. Without it, you’ll encounter problems pretty quick. And with some central vacuum manufacturers, poor maintenance can void your warranty also.
So know what you’re getting into up front. Ask yourself these questions.
- How often do I need to empty the dirt receptacle?
- What’s involved in cleaning the filter?
- How much dirty work’s involved in maintaining the unit?
- Do I need proprietary filters and bags?
After the motor, the filtration system is the most important part of your central unit. Broadly speaking, there are three different types: bag units, filtered, and cyclonic. Each type has its own set of pros and cons, which we’ll discuss below.
1. Bagged Units
Bagged units are about like they sound. They use a bag to gather debris, just like your old fashioned portable vacuum cleaner. It’s best to empty them when they’re less than ¾ full, otherwise you’ll lose suction power.
Although outside venting is alway an option, one advantage of bag units is that they don’t absolutely require it.
2. Filtered Units
Filtered units use a filter to protect the motor from getting clogged with dust and debris. They may or may not use a bag, depending on the manufacturer. And just like a bag unit, outside venting is not required. The downside is that the filter inevitably reduces air flow and suction power.
You have to clean the filter, to ensure efficiency and better protect the motor. This can sometimes be a dirty job. Call Ace-CentralVac team.
Cyclonic units work by spinning the dust and debris around at incredibly high speeds. The heavier dirt stays in the canister, while the rest is either exhausted outside the home or sticks to a screen which needs to be cleaned. This means that outside venting is always required. There’s no filter to clean in cyclonic systems, so you’re virtually guaranteed to get 100% cleaning power, at least initially.
It’s our experience that the lack of a filter is a real drawback, even if it does give you maximum power, initially. But without a proper filter, dust and debris inevitably get into the motor over time, greatly reducing suction power.
