Top Accessories You Should Have for your Beam Vacuum

Beam Vacuum Floor Brush

Installing any appliance in your house can garner a lot of questions. Central vacuum systems are becoming a very popular and practical choice among homeowners. The systems have many qualities that are appealing and vastly outstrip the portable vacuum competition. One of the most common questions for owners of new central vacuum systems seems to be, “What accessories do I need?”
Portable vacuum cleaners come with a battalion of attachments whether you want them or not, leaving you to keep track of random wands and brushes that you may never use.
Beam central vacuum systems offer attachments and accessories that allow you to customize your systems to the needs of your household or business.

What Is A Beam Central Vacuum System?

Beam central vacuum systems are quite popular among home builders and homeowners. Beam has long been known for the quality of its systems and the wide availability of tools and accessories to customize your cleaning needs. A central vacuum system is a vacuum cleaner, unlike portable vacuums, connected via a system of ducts and connectors throughout your whole home. A powerful motor and dirt collector is installed in an out-of-the-way place like your garage or basement and connected to the piping ducts. There are many reasons that central vacuuming units are superior to portable vacuum machines, including:

  • They have more powerful motors than portable vacuums that produce more suction.
  • Dust, dirt, and debris are pulled through the piping and permanently removed from your home.
  • The dust collection canister is large enough to hold 3-6 months’ worth of debris.
  • Central vacuums are very quiet and you can talk on the phone or listen to music while vacuuming.
  • There is no heavy unit to push or pull around the house that eliminates bumping into furniture, walls, baseboards, or bookcases.
  • There is no long cord to get tangled up in or caught on furniture.

Beam central vacuums have a long life and many people report theirs lasted more than 20 years. In general, they require much less maintenance and repairs than upright or canister vacuums. The significant thing about them is they have a wall inlet (port) in each room or area as you desire where the hose and tools connect. When you finish one room or area, you carry a lightweight hose to the next room and keep working.
