People no longer need to drag heavy vacuum cleaners around the home, and up and down the stairs, in order to get their carpets and floors clean. All they need to do is install a central vac. This can be used in any room in the home, and there is nothing to lug around. These vacuums have as much as two to three times as much suction power than portable vacuum cleaners, because they have bigger motors that are more powerful. But, portability and suction aren’t the only reasons to have one of these installed in a home.
