Image result for images of using a central vacuumHave you wanted a central vacuum system in your home for a long time, but thought it was too late to install one? You might be surprised to know that retrofitting a central vacuum in an existing house can easily be done by skilled installers. In fact, many people have done it, and so can you! A DuoVac system is ideal for any size of home and cleaning needs.

All that’s required to get a central vacuum in your existing home is to take the following steps:

  1. Hire professionals to prepare your home
  2. Purchase your DuoVac vacuum system
  3. Install the system with precision
  4. Learn how to use your vacuum cleaner

Let’s explore how to accomplish this goal and the benefits of a DuoVac central vacuum.

Hire Professionals to Prepare Your Home

Most homeowners lack the skills and tools to prepare a home for a central vacuum. You may be the exception if you have successfully done this in one or more houses. However, if you are even the slightest bit worried about doing all the prep work, you should not attempt it and should hire professionals instead. Get three estimates from different companies, choose one, and order the complete system for your size house.

To install a central vacuum in your home, installers will want to know the diameter of the pipes that carry the debris. They typically come in standard sizes, which should not be a problem unless you order a different size. They also need a diagram of the rooms, locations of wall inlets, and routing of the pipes.

You should cover all furniture and floors in each area where work will be done as the installers will cut holes in walls, floor plates, and ceiling plates as necessary, to run the pipes and place the wall outlets. Schedule the work when you can be home to help the preparation go smoothly.

Install the System with Precision

Most people hang the power unit in the garage or basement to keep the noise out of the house. Typically, this part of the system is securely mounted on the wall at a convenient height for emptying, cleaning, and maintenance.

The installers will cut the pipes to length for horizontal and vertical placement inside the walls, and glue the connections for a tight fit that will last the lifetime of the systems. It will be necessary to cut holes in the drywall to make some of the connections.

Pipes will be mounted to wall inlets strategically placed for connecting the vacuum hose. The installers will know how far apart to locate the inlets to achieve maximum coverage with your length of hose. Once the job is complete, the installers will also finish any wall patching and painting, and then you’re almost ready to use your new appliance.

Several test runs will be made on each connection to ensure the system is working correctly in each room. The last things to do are to locate an appropriate storage space and read the manual before cleaning your house.
