What is a Ducted Vacuum?

Simply put, a ducted vacuum system is the easier, faster, healthier way to clean your home.

Ducted vacuum systems have gone from being luxury items in the 1970's and '80s, to being an affordable must-have alternatives to portable vacuum cleaners for many Australian homeowners.

A semi-permanent fixture, a ducted vacuum consists of four key components:

  • A Power Unit:
    The power unit runs the ducted vacuum system and is usually located in a garage or underneath the house. The dust collection is also stored at the same location. Because you don't have to drag the power unit around with you, ducted vacuum systems are generally much more powerful than portable vacuums.
  • PVC pipe work or ducting:

    PVC pipework connects the ducted vacuum power unit and collection bag to the vacuum outlets in each room. You'll never have to worry about unsightly PVC piping as it's usually installed in the ceiling, walls or floor.

  • Inlet valves:

    These are installed at strategic locations throughout the home, making it easy to simply attach your vacuum hose and clean the room you're in. An average size home only needs three ducted vacuum points, and Aussie Vac specialists make sure that every corner is accessible.

  • Vacuum hoses and attachments:

    These include a lightweight 9 metre hose and accessories for vacuuming carpet, rugs, floorboards, curtains, your car... basically you can vacuum anything in your house. Because you're only holding the front end of the vacuum, it's never a physical strain.
