What Is A Central Vacuum Low Voltage Hose?

wall inletA low-voltage central vacuum hose is a hose that consists of a thin series of low-voltage wiring allowing total control of the central vacuum. Once the end of the hose is inserted into the wall inlet, a metal band completes the circuit for a low voltage connection and allows you to turn the power unit on or off from the hose handle switch.

What Are Some Features Of A Low Voltage Hoses?

Low-voltage central vacuum hoses are equipped with a two-position rocker switch, conveniently located at the handle of the hose, so you can manually turn your central vacuum system on or off via the switch on the handle. Normally designed with a 360° swivel allowing maximum performance, eliminating wrist strain and fatigue, stops kinking, and increases hose life. With these low voltage central vacuum hoses, you can increase suction for maximum cleaning power, or decrease the suction for the most delicate of fabrics. Consumer Alert *Not Compatible With Electric Powerheads. 

Electric central vacuum hoses were developed with a series of both low-voltage and high-voltage wires integrated throughout the hose. The low-voltage wire is to conduct a signal from the hose to the central vacuum system, turning the central vacuum on or off.

FAQs about Low Voltage Central Vacuum Hoses

What is the difference between a low voltage hose and an electric hose?

A low voltage hose uses low voltage wiring for basic functions such as turning the vacuum unit on or off. An electric hose has both low-voltage and high-voltage wires integrated into it, allowing for additional features such as operating an electric powerhead for deeper carpet cleaning.

How long do low voltage hoses typically last?

With proper care and usage, a low voltage central vacuum hose can last for many years. The lifespan depends on the frequency of use and how well it is maintained. Regularly inspecting the hose for damages and storing it properly when not in use can help prolong its life.

What should I do if my low voltage hose isn't functioning properly?

First, check to ensure that the hose is properly connected to the wall inlet and that there are no obstructions in the hose. If the problem persists, consult the troubleshooting guide provided with your hose or contact customer service for further assistance.

Are low voltage hoses safe to use around water?

While low voltage hoses are safe for general home use, they should not be used in wet conditions or immersed in water. Always follow the manufacturer’s instructions regarding proper use and safety precautions.
 If you are unsure, it is best to consult a professional before using the hose around water.

What should I do if my low voltage hose gets twisted or kinked during use?

If your low-voltage hose becomes twisted or kinked, turn off your central vacuum system and carefully straighten it out. Avoid pulling on the hose too forcefully, as this can lead to damage. It is also important to mention that a hose sock will prevent these things from happening and prevent them from damaging the walls and furniture.
