I installed a central vac system in my home and have installed another for a client. IMO it's the only dust-free way to vacuum a home (if you don't use the beater-bar vac head). If you have decent skills with drilling, fishing, LV wiring, plumbing, etc. you'll be good to go. I've replaced vac motors with different brands, and moved the motor to a different location. Performance is super because the central vac allows a larger motor and bag capacity than anything you'd want to drag around the house.Thinking of installing a central vac in my own home. What do you guys think, ever had one if so did you like it and did it perform well.
