Why a central vacuum?

Central Vacuum Terminology

(data associated with central vacuum cleaning systems)

C.F.M. - Cubic feet of air displaced per minute by a vacuum. This measurement is usually expressed at a 2 opening (standard pipe size used in vacuum rough-in).

WATERLIFT - The distance measured in inches that a vacuum motor will lift a column of water up a tube (2 unless otherwise stated). Always rated at standard atmospheric conditions of 29.92 of Hg (mercury), 68 degrees Fahrenheit and usually expressed at a seal opening.

AMPERES - The rate of electron flow through a conductor, usually calculated at 110 VAC.

WATTS - The measure of electrical power, calculated by multiplying the voltage by the current (Amperes).

AIRWATTS - (The only industrial wide standard of measuring a units' power) C.F.M. at a given opening (2 unless otherwise stated) times "Waterlift" at the same opening size divided by 8.5. Usually express at maximum levels.

TOP MOUNT WITH INVERTED CLOTH FILTER - Recommended outside venting. Filter requires shaking in order to clean it, depositing dust on the floor beneath during cleaning.

Requires outside venting. Deposits debris on outside walls, plants, etc. Screen requires monthly cleaning. Five to seven percent of dust and lint enters fan chamber, reducing motor life.

BOTTOM MOUNT WITH PAPER, CLOTH, MESH, AND FOAM FILTERS - Exhaust clean air (air filtered before exiting unit). No outside venting necessary. Extended motor life. Easy change of collection bag. Reusable cloth, mesh, and foam filters. Slight power loss as collection bag fills.
