consumer publications on central vacuums came out
in 2004, which means all machines were tested in 2003.
This particular publication was generally not accepted
in the central vacuum industry as accurate. There was a
very small amount of vacuums tested at this time,
therefore limiting the results they could of had. A lot
of variables such as filtration type, bag or bagless
style, quietness etc. were left out of the equation.
This means any vacuums that were featured in this
publication were not compared to all the other central
vacuums on the market and can be misleading.
Although the different consumer magazines can be a good
guide to purchasing a good central vacuum, many
individual needs are not taken into consideration. For
example, if you have a child that suffers from asthma
you may need a certain filtration. Another example would
be the sound level of a central vacuum. You may need to
install the unit in a interior closet, requiring a quiet
unit. They also do not talk about the units track record
of service or repairs. These are just some examples of
individual needs that make a in depth comparison chart a
better guide when purchasing a central vacuum.
We were approached in the
fall of 2009 by two popular and leading
consumer magazines because of our unbiased, comprehensive and truthful knowledge
of the central vacuum industry. They wanted the most of
complete overview of the central vacuum industry so they
could form their own opinion based on thousands of hours
of research. They actually purchased the majority of the
vacuums they tested. Seven of the 13 units that were
purchased from us were to be tested for future
publications. They choose our site
to buy that day, and when we got that phone call we felt
like we were on cloud 9.
When shopping or searching for a central vacuum unit you should be aware of
vacuum units that are private labeled. A private labeled vacuum unit is
basically a vacuum unit that someone puts a sticker on and tries to push very hard due to
a higher profit margin. For example, this is the equivalent of us taking a
sticker and slapping it on any vacuum, making
"Imperial Vac", "Empire Vacuum",
"Tony's Vacs" or some other fictitious name appear to be
a real company. Anyone can put a crown on a vacuum and pretend to be a
real company. There are a variety
of problems that come with a private labeled unit ranging from warranty issues,
difficulty with service, companies going out of business etc. You should ALWAYS
deal with a real central vacuum company, a company that you can contact, not a
company that simply applied their name to a vacuum. When you purchase a private
labeled unit you will ALWAYS have to go back to that company, and ONLY that
company for all warranty related issues. We have also heard complaints from
customers that they cannot have their private labeled unit serviced locally.
Local dealers "simply will not touch" private labeled vacuums. Local dealers
normally cannot get parts for these units and do not want to be responsible for
any work that may violate the warranty agreement.
using a private label can easily change their name over
night, leaving you stuck in the dark. As the old saying
goes, here today..
gone tomorrow. With no one to look for, and no name brand to
find, you will have no one to turn to.
Make sure you're
never left in the dark.
Stay away from private labels!
Many people also get stuck with a
vacuum unit they cannot get replacement parts for once these
"companies" go out of business. Being that no other companies carry
these private labeled units, you are forced to go back to them for
parts, bags, filters, hinges, motors etc. At this point you will have
no other option but to pay their much higher prices for replacement
parts. Once the company has gone out of business the customer is left
stranded and often will have to replace the unit. These so-called companies often do not
have insurance or liability coverage and will not assist their
customer in these events.
Thinkvacuums.com do not believe in private labeling any vacuum unit
due to these reasons and more. We only deal with real, legitimate
companies such as Nutone®, Honeywell®, Drainvac®, PowerStar®, Airvac®,
Hoover®, Dustcare®, Walvac®,Cana-Vac®, and others. These are REAL
companies. Companies that you can contact via phone or visit online.
This is not the case with a private labeled vacuum unit. You will NOT
be able to go to their website for more information. You will NOT find
an actual company under "Super Sucker 2000", but ONLY the company that
sold it to you...assuming their still open for business!
If you're not able to find a particular company on
our comprehensive comparison charts, chances are
it's a private labeled brand. Buyer beware.
The only reason a company private labels a vacuum is to earn more
money from an unsuspecting customer. These companies are well aware of
the fact that you cannot shop this vacuum anywhere else, forcing you
to pay whatever high price they give. There is of course a much higher
profit margin for companies that sell their own private labeled line.
Thinkvacuums.com would much rather give our customers more options so
they are able to get the unit that best fits their needs and budget.
Our customer service representatives will help guide you in the right
direction, with many options and price levels. We are more concerned
about our customers satisfaction then our profit margin, so
Thinkvacuums.com will NEVER private label a vacuum.
In all honesty, a private labeled unit is nothing more than a fake
company out to steal your money. You are forced to pay higher prices,
because NO OTHER COMPANY will have their unit making it impossible to
shop. Secondly, if you ever need a replacement part you will be force
to go back to the company where they control the pricing. You will
undoubtedly be forced to pay higher prices for these parts and/or
repairs. So don't become trapped! If your not sure about a company or
unit, ask for that COMPANY'S (manufacturers) website and phone number.
You may also contact Thinkvacuums.com for information regarding
private labeled vacuum units.
A Central Vacuum?
No other technology cleans as efficiently and effectively as
a central cleaning system. It is by far the best choice in
making your home healthier and cleaner. In addition to the
trusty broom and dustpan, many home owners use a small
vacuum for the stairs and the car, an upright for the
carpeting, and a shop vacuum for the garage. They all need
filters, belts and periodic maintenance or replacement. It's
hard to believe that a central vacuum could replace most of
these cleaning tools.
Although normally associated with new construction and
expensive homes, central vacuum systems can be installed in
most existing homes and are actually quite economical. They
add resale value to your home, so a central vacuum is an
investment that will pay for itself. Breathe easier: Indoor
air pollution is one of the most common problems addressed
by allergists. One in three people in the U.S. have
dust-related allergies and the EPA estimates that indoor air
may be up to five times more polluted than outdoor air. A
central vacuum is often recommended for removing pollutants
since 99.7% of pollens, bacteria, and pet dander vacuumed are
exhausted out of the home when vented outdoors. Researchers
at the University of California at Davis school of medicine
revealed that the use of a central vacuum system reduced
nasal allergy symptoms by as much as 47%, eye symptoms by as
much as 61% and improved indoor air quality by 52%.
The second reason to purchase a central vacuum is the
tremendous cleaning power. A central vacuum system can
produce as much as five times as much power as you normal
household vacuum cleaner and since it's in a remote
location, the sound produced from the central vacuum is
barely noticeable (excluding the powerhead). You'll be able
to hear the phone ring or carry a full conversation with
someone in the same room with no need to talk over the
Finally, a central vacuum completely eliminates the need to
drag a bulky machine around the house, banging out furniture
and walls in the process. Household vacuums have to carried
up and down stairs, and in the of canister style vacuums,
they the potential of falling down the stairs and breaking
itself along with whatever is in it's way. The dirt capacity
of an average central vacuum is very generous when compared
to a household vacuum. They usually require emptying once
maybe twice a year depending on how often you vacuum. Also,
having a built-in vacuum system typically retain their full
value when a home sells and is considered a home upgrade
which increases the value of the home - something that can't
be said about a portable vacuum, more matter how expensive
