New Home Construction
If you're building a new home or remodelling, there will never be a better time to install an Electrolux Central Vacuum System. Installation of your system is done after plumbing and electrical work is completed and before wallboard is installed.
The key to success is planning a pipe system with a minimum number of inlets and elbows (turns in pipe) to keep labor time and costs at a minimum while still giving you the vacuum cleaning flexibility only a central vacuum system offers. Ask your builder or contact an authorized Electrolux Central Vacuum Dealer to find out more.
