What is the difference between an electric powerhead and a turbo powerhead?

Turbo (Air-Driven) Powerhead

AirVac LogoA turbo or turbine powerhead harnesses the airflow of a central vacuum system. Unlike electric powerheads, turbo/turbine powerheads do not require electricity, batteries, cords, or a motor to operate. Instead, it uses the suction power of the central vacuum to turn the brush roller. These powerheads are used in homes with carpets and are easy to use and maneuver under and around furniture. They provide deep cleaning action on all types of carpeting without having to rely on electricity. But keep in mind with a turbo powerhead you can not stop the brush roller in the same way you can with an electric powerhead. Turbo central vacuum powerheads can be used with low voltage hoses. So be sure to check the style of hose you have before choosing a powerhead.

Electric Powerheads

Electric central vacuum powerheads use their own motor to operate and are used with electric hoses that allow the user to control the motor from a switch located on the handle of an electric central vacuum hose. With this feature, you can turn the brush roller on/off to clean both carpets and bare flooring. When cleaning bare floors simply flip the switch and turn off the brush roller. When cleaning carpets turn the brush roller on. The brush roller on electric powerheads spin at a much faster speed that results in a more efficient clean. They also offer superior edge cleaning ability that can easily clean the edges of carpets and bare floors close to the baseboards. Some other things you will also want to consider when choosing a central vacuum powerhead for your AirVac central vac is the ability to adjust the height of the brush roller. If you have high pile carpeting and are not able to adjust the height the powerhead can become hard to push and not clean as well. The most popular powerhead is one with a floating brush roller that automatically adjusts to the height of the surface that is being cleaned. Other powerheads have manual height adjustment that is manually set for the surface to be cleaned.
