Installing H-P Product's Central Vacuum System in an Existing Home - an Easy Add-on to Remodeling Projects

Share Article

Central Vacuums create a cleaner, healthier home and are a great addition for remodeling projects.

Tubing is installed in walls and run back to power unit location in basement or garage.

Existing Homeowners can have the convenience of a central vacuum system in less then 8 hours.

Many homeowners would like to reap the health and convenience benefits of a built-in central vacuum. However they believe their existing homes can't be modified for a central vacuum. The fact is, homes of any age and size can easily be retrofitted in less than a day with no structural modifications required. Increasingly central vacuum systems are being installed during home renovations. According to Amy Wesely, Marketing Manager for H-P Products, Inc one of America’s leading central vacuum manufacturers, “Retrofit installations can usually be complete in less then a day. Once the tubing is installed in walls and attached to a central unit in the garage, basement, or utility area, homeowners can enjoy cleaner, healthier homes with vacuum power up to five times more powerful than portable vacuum cleaners.” Central vacs have long been noted for their ability to eliminate indoor air pollutants, named by the EPA as one of America’s biggest causes of health problems. Having the vacuum unit remotely mounted in the garage or basement also creates a quieter vacuuming experience.

When central vacuums are installed in existing homes, tubing is run through the walls to strategically placed inlet valves. The valves provide complete access to all the living space with a central vacuum hose, which can even be mounted in the wall for extra convenience. The installation professional will work with a homeowner to determine the best placement of the power unit and inlet valves.

A number of different central vacuum accessories are available to make the system fit personal lifestyles. Included are Vroom® retractable hoses that puts permanent vacuum power in kitchen cabinets, bathroom vanities and garages. Vroom provides quick-clean vacuum power close at hand throughout the house. There are also special tools to clean pets, hard floors, stairs, high areas, corners and more. With all the additional accessories, cleaning has never been more convenient.

Central vacuums manufactured by H-P Products, Inc. are now also available with a number of Vroom® accessories to comprise a complete Convenience Cleaning System.
