Utility of the Central Vacuum Inlet

UIBThe CVAC hose inlet mounted next to or attached with the power unit is often called a “utility inlet”. These inlets  are often promoted as an easy option for cleaning in the garage or basement where many vacuum system power units are mounted. Today the utility inlet is promoted as an important feature of central vacuums, but that is not how they started.

The utility inlet was originally devised for maintenance of the vacuum system itself. Many of the first consumer central vacuums used cyclonic separation which is unfortunately quite messy when it comes time for regular emptying of the bin. The separation cone, filter screen and internal shrouds are all places where dirt and dust will accumulate and during maintenance when the bin is removed these soils often fall out of the vacuum.
For some of us a little dirt on the garage floor is not exactly new. Some cyclonic vacuum system owners keep a garbage can with liner sitting just under the vacuum at all times. This will catch most of the debris that might fall out of the vacuum during maintenance of the bin and the filter screen in cyclonic vacuums, and gives you a convenient place to dump the bin when full. If your messy cyclonic central vacuum has a utility inlet you need only hook up your hose to recover escaped debris once your bin is reattached to the vacuum and your filter screen has been cleaned.

Aspria Vacuums offers the more advanced permanent filter system or sealed bag collection system, both of which keep their dust in the bin or bag during regular maintenance and not on the floor. Instead of permanently mounting the utility intake into the front of the vacuum, Aspria includes an inline switched utility inlet that allows you to place the valve where it is best for you. Often our clients find it best to mount the utility inlet near a garage door which allows cleaning of one or two cars in the garage and one in the drive all from the same inlet while keeping your vacuum mounted nearer to the front of the garage out of the way of traffic and away from any weather that may come in from an open garage door.

Aspria GQ and HHQ series also include optional intake mounted utility inlets when used in bagless collection mode that allows installation of the utility inlet directly into the body of the vacuum along (old-school style) with the inline mounting option included with all models of Aspria vacuum. A built-in utility inlet may have been more useful in the older cyclonic separation design than newer permanent filtered or bagged vacuums but we like the idea of giving the client all options and letting the client decide which is best for their home.

Get Control Of Yourself.

If presented with the two above component cards and asked which you would rather have in your laptop as a high speed graphics card for game play you would quickly select the card on the right. This card is clearly outfitted with some advanced technology and would make a much better choice of graphics card.

What if presented with the two same component cards again and asked to select which card you would rather have connected to your kitchen light switch?  When you flip your wall switch for your kitchen lights this component card will turn the lights on or off. In this scenario you instinctively would choose the card on the left. The card on the left has many fewer components and for a simple task and it would be more reliable because there are fewer parts to fail. Both component cards perform the exact same task so the one that does it with fewer parts is more efficient and statistically more reliable. Continue reading


Installing a central vacuum system in a new or pre-existing home is an easy process in most cases that can be completed in one or two days. Adding a central cleaning system to a residence not only makes cleaning more efficient and convenient, but also adds value to the home that is often 2 – 4 times the initial cost of equipment. Central cleaning is the choice for those who want more power, better filtration and the reliability of a built-in appliance that can not be found in a portable upright or canister vacuum.

Which central vacuum is best? It is the single most asked question at Aspria Systems, and for good reason. If you browse the web you will find dozens of products that claim to be the best and many nonsensical central vacuum ratings which claim to offer an easy answer. The true question is not which is best, but what makes a central vacuum “the best”? If you are installing your own new vacuum system or replacing an old unit you have a clear advantage over most central vacuum users: you have the power to choose your own equipment.

Most systems are chosen and preinstalled by the builder whom may have selected the lowest cost expensive bid. In a search for the best you can often dismiss Builders Grade class of CVAC equipment. There was also a time when your geography dictated your selection of central vacuum equipment. Thanks to the internet you have a nearly unlimited selection. A larger selection probably does not seem helpful if you are trying to find just one good one. We will endeavor to trim the field and make your selection easier here.
