The Best Filtration Type On The Market !


Easily change your bag in as little as 20 seconds!Paper bags are a must for allergy and asthma sufferersUsing a central vacuum paper bag in a central vacuum provides outstanding motor protection and is the cleanest and most hygienic way to clean out your built-in vacuums. Using a paper or cloth bag insures longer motor life and continual performance. When using a cloth or paper bag unit, the dirt is separated from the air by the bag. This means the air going through the motor is already filtered, thus extending the motor life. There is also no need to vent the unit to the outside because the exhausted air is clean. Using a bag Paper bags are a cleaner, more hygienic way to dispose of your dirtsystem will allow you to trap even the tiniest dust and dirt particles and as a result your family can breath cleaner air. It only takes 20 seconds to change a bag and is only done 2-3 times a year. Disposable paper bags are also much stronger today and can easily withstand the weight of the dirt and debris. No one wants to deal with the unpleasant foul odors and messy task of cleaning out a bagless system. For an even better filtration some manufacturers are starting to create paper bags that are Hepa Teflon coated. Using a paper or cloth bag along with solid filtration will provide the best protection from dirt, dust, pet dander, lice, fleas & their eggs, dead skin, hair, dead insects, spiders, roaches, rotten food particles, bacteria, germs, allergens and other lung damaging particles. When using a vacuum bag, any central vacuum hardly ever loses suction. The reason for this is because all the dirt, hair, dust, etc. stays off the primary filter, giving the motor a better chance to breathe and run cooler which increases the motor's life.

 "That's Nothing To Sneeze About!"

HEPA filtration is the most advanced filtration system on the marketHepa Teflon filtration is the most technologically advanced filtration on the market today. For the best filtration, it is recommended that a Hepa filter be used together with a paper or cloth bag. 

Simply put, using a bag in a central vacuum system will provide outstanding filtration, high efficiency and improved indoor air quality. We at Thinkvacuums.com believe the cost of a bag is a small price to pay for securing your health and the protection of your vacuum motor.



Here's something to ponder; What if you didn't use a garbage bag in your kitchen garbage can?
Think of all the bacteria, germs, mold, and the smell that will grow in there. That's why 98% of builders and the public prefer using a paper disposable bag in their central vacuums...it just makes sense.

The Proven Value of Filtration
No more handling the dirt directly, with a bag system you just throw out the bag and you're doneThink of a central vacuum like your air conditioner. With an air conditioner, the air is sucked through the coil or motor similar to a central vacuum. Both need some sort of filter to clean out the dirty, dusty air so it does not re-circulate back into your living area. Using a bag will eliminate the majority of the dirt and dust that needs to be filtered. Not only is filtration important to your indoor air quality, it is also the first line of defense in motor protection. No other single element in a central vacuum is more important then the filtration. What good is a quality motor, if it is poorly protected? 

After power and warranty, filtration method is the second most important factor when considering a central vacuum

To quote the American Lung Association, "Central vacuum systems provide cleaner indoor air by efficiently removing particles without stirring up microscopic dust particles and re-emitting them into the interior of the home. The central vacuum receptacle is vented outside of the living space keeping the air inside free of the pollutants."

Certified by the American Lung AssociationAccording to the U.S. EPA, indoor air pollution is America's most serious environmental health problem. The American College of Allergists also reports that 50% of all illnesses are caused by, or aggravated by, polluted indoor air. The average U.S. home collects 40 pounds of dust each year. If you haven't removed that much dust from your home, then it's still there!

UC Davis studyThe UC Davis study is just one of many organizations and scholarly studies who believe a central vacuum system goes a long way in eliminating the microscopic dirt that causes us discomfort and makes us sick. With the dirt and dust neatly contained in a disposable bag, emptying the dirt from the unit is quick and clean.
Dust Mite

House dust is plentiful and may be harmful. Help protect your family with a central vacuum system. House dust contains: skin flakes, hair, food particles, pet dander, insect parts and feces and whatever your shoes can track in - including animal waste, mold and pollen, lead dust and pesticides. Homes cleaned with a central vacuum reduce the risk of allergies, sneezing, asthma, watery eyes, coughing, dizziness, shortness of breath, lethargy and even digestive problems.
University of California - Davis School of Medicine study supports previous research proving central vacuums improve air quality.

100% Protection from Dust and AllergensWhat is Asthma?

Asthma is a condition that causes the airways that carry oxygen into and out of the lungs to become swollen or narrow, making breathing difficult. Those with asthma may experience wheezing, tightness in the chest and coughing. During an asthma "attack", airways are further constricted causing symptoms to become more severe. Although there is no cure for asthma, you can improve your chances of maintaining an active lifestyle by controlling your asthma symptoms.

 Using a paper bag, you never have to come into direct contact with the dirt

Important Things To Know

Never suck up fireplace ashes, talcum powder, construction dust, sheet rock dust etc. This may suffocate the motor causing premature motor burn out or even worse, overheating which is a fire hazard and not covered under any manufacturers warranty.
