What is a central vacuum cleaner?

A central vacuum is a built-in vacuum that is installed in your home and can be used in any room. Its vacuum unit can be installed in a garage or basement, and then piped through each room through walls, floors, etc. Make every room connected to a garage or basement vacuum unit.

There are two types of central vacuums, cyclones and filtration. Cyclone systems separate dust from the air with tornado-like force, while filtration systems are most common in homes.
