:255 Central Vacuums

Welcome to today’s 1:5:10:365 Tip for becoming a better steward for our home and planet environment.

1:5:10:255 EcoTip: Central vacuums are a good way to remove fine dusts including those that are created during remodeling. In order for a central vacuum cleaner to be effective in removing fine dusts it must be exhausted outside the building. If the unit is not properly exhausted the dust will be recirculated in the home.


 Additional Information:

Central vacuums are permanently installed vacuum cleaner systems. They are easiest to install during new construction. The system is usually mounted in the garage or basement and exhausted outside, but I’ve seen many that aren’t exhausted out so that fine dust makes it back into the living area. I’ve also run into these systems mounted under stairwells and in closets where the dust ends up right back in the home.
