Central Vacuum Buyers Guide
Vacuuming may not be your most favourite thing to do, but with a Sachvac Central Vacuum System you can vacuum with ease.
A Central Vacuum System features a unit that is connected to valves via a system of ductwork. To use you simply connect the vacuum hose to a valve in the wall and begin to vacuum. The dirt and dust will travel through the ducting and is stored in the unit away from your living areas.
Check out our central vacuum buyers guide.
We also have Hide a Hose systems where the hose is hidden in the wall, so you don’t have to worry about moving or storing the hose!

Vacuum Systems for Your Home
Conventional vacuum cleaners can be noisy, heavy, awkward to use and may even have an unpleasant smell. Sachvac Central Vacuum systems are superior to conventional vacuum cleaners and by not having to trail round a vacuum unit it becomes as much easier task.
A central vacuum system can help reduce the risk of allergies caused by dust and irritants in the home. The average house collects around 40 pounds of dust per year, by using a central vacuum system you can reduce up to 60% of airborne dust and pollen within your home.
Central Vacuum Kits
A Central Vacuum kit is based on how may vacuum points are required for your size of home.
We recommend that you use an 8-meter hose to provide an easy to use system and you can either determine the number of wall inlets by:
- Measuring each room ensuring that an 8-meter hose will reach all areas
- Using the relationship of 50m2 for each inlet.
Based on the home square footage used above, divide that value by 50. Always round up for estimating purposes. For example, using a 280m2. Home Size of 280 / 50 = 5.6. Round up to 6 inlets.
We specialise in the highest quality heat recovery ventilation kits suitable for any competent tradesperson or homeowner to install.
Central Vacuum Installation
Central Vacuum units can be placed almost anywhere in your home, please ensure there is easy access for emptying the unit. The most common areas for them to be placed:
- Utility room
- Easy accessed loft
The unit is connected to valves in your wall via a system of ductwork that is installed within your walls. These systems can be installed DIY, or we can provide one of our trusted installers in your area across the UK and Ireland.
We recommend installing a central vacuum system at time of building or renovating. These systems can be retrofitted but the installation process may be obtrusive.
Keeping your system clean and maintained is key to keeping your system operating to its best ability. A central vacuum system is an investment for your home and do not usually require maintenance, other than emptying, for up to 10 years.
The Sachvac pipe cleaning kit is a simple and effective way to clean and maintain your vacuum ductwork. Simply connect to furthest away inlet valve and suck up the container full of special balls that will collect any fluff and dirt trapped in the pipework, you can collect and reuse time again.
Your system can tell you when you when your storage container is full via the digital screen on Digital models. Sachvac vacuums use a three-stage cyclonic filtration that requires no bags and are supplied with a large container to facilitate less frequent emptying.
