The installation of a DUOVAC central vacuum system is easier and
less expensive than you think. DUOVAC systems can be installed
in new builds, renovations and conversions, and also in existing
buildings. The vacuum unit is wall mounted in a location such
as a basement, cellar, garage, utility room or loft. It is connected
to a standard 13 amp electric socket. Ducting is concealed behind
the walls, in cupboards, or under the floors and only the wall
inlets are visible. Due to the quality of the filter DUOVAC systems
do not require exhausting to the outside.
For DIY installations we provide you with easy to follow instructions.
||The first step is to choose the
location of the vacuum power unit and wall inlets. Generally
we recommend the vacuum power unit is installed in a garage,
basement or utility room. This permits the machine to be out
of the way helping to reduce any noise.
|The next step is to find the
shortest or easiest route between the vacuum power unit and
the wall inlets in order to install the ducting. It is often
best to follow existing installations for plumbing, heating,
air conditioning or electrical wiring and take advantage of
access through floors and walls that is already available.
With good planning, it is possible to avoid messy jobs such
as drilling through floors or opening walls to install ducting
in an existing home.
