Central Vacuum Power Heads

Power Brushes, Power Nozzles, Carpet Heads & more

Power heads come both in Air Driven (Turbine) and Electric Powered carpet nozzles. Central vacuum power heads are designed with a lower profile than most conventional upright vacuums and canister vacuums. This makes them better for cleaning your house. Power heads connect directly to an existing central vacuum via hose, wand or handle attachment.

Power heads or carpet nozzles generate superior suction by pulling right from the motor(s) in your current power unit. Central vacuum power heads are lightweight, responsive and easy to move around walls, under cabinets and furniture.

Electric power heads are essentially electric powered carpet attachments for your central vacuum system.

Electric powered motor for power heads

Electric Power Head Operation: Electricity runs through a wire on the Central Vacuum Hose to supply power to the power head motor. The electric driven motor then controls the brush roller to operate at much higher RPMs. This helps agitate and remove any embedded dirt or debris found deep within the carpet.

Higher RPMs allow the brush roller to dig down deep, beating and sweeping your carpet fibers. This pulls out not only dirt but sand, hair, allergy laden particles and much more! Because Electric Power Heads not only make cleaning easier for you, they may even make your carpet last longer - ultimately saving you time & money.
