Electrolux Central Vacuum How it works

How a central vac works.
Convenience built-in.

Electrolux Central Vacuum Systems use specifically designed tubing installed in the walls of your home to carry 100% of the contacted dirt, dust and allergens away from living area to the central power unit commonly located in the garage, utility room or basement.

To activate the system, simply insert the lightweight hose into a central vacuum wall inlet valve. Most homes will typically have one central vacuum inlet valve per floor averaging three per house. The flexible lightweight hose and inlet system allow you to easily move from room to room without having to push a heavy upright vacuum or pull canister vacuum behind commonly bumping into walls or valuable furniture.

With the telescopic wand and convenient on-board 3-in-1 cleaning tool, you have everything you need right at hand, to clean any surface, any crevice, high or low.

The power unit is located away from the living area, usually in a basement, garage or ventilated utility room. Tubing is installed through interior walls, attic, basement and crawlspaces that connects the inlet valves to the power unit. Each strategically located inlet valve lets you vacuum approximately 65-75 square meters at a time.

Innovative accessories like the VacPan can be incorporated into the system for additional cleaning ease.

You can exhausted to the outside or through a HEPA filter system to leave you nothing but clean indoor air.

Plug in and go

Plug in and go

No need to lift heavy vacuums, trip over cords or drag a portable canister around furniture causing damage. The long crushproof hose gets in all the hard to reach places – even under furniture!

Just plug in the lightweight hose in to the wall valve and you are good to go for quick clean-ups or full deep cleaning.

An Electrolux central vacuum system will never recirculate dust and allergens back in to your living space while you are vacuuming, unlike conventional vacuums that can recirculate dusty air.
