Let Hyde-Whipp help you choose the optimal location for the central receptacle, preferably in an area that is dry and in a place where residents of the home will not be disturbed by the electric motor. Then, customers can choose the location of their inlet valves. Many manufacturers recommend installing one inlet for every 600 square feet of the home, and houses with multiple stories will need at least one inlet per story. Near doors, at the bottoms of staircases and hallways all make ideal locations for inlet valve installation.
Hyde-Whipp will provide the best advice regarding inlet placement so that the Central Vacuum System can be operated around all obstacles.
Central Vac installation also involves planning the tubing and wiring systems. Trunk lines connect the furthest inlet valve to the central unit, while branch lines connect all other valves. The trunk line is best run between the joists of an unfinished basement ceiling. Upper levels may be reached through closets, cold air return ducts or partition walls. Central Vacuum installation will then involve cutting, dry fitting, cementing and gluing PVC pipe. The wiring system must be run along the tubing during the installation. Low voltage wire is usually spliced together at the junction of a branch and trunk line.
