Central or portable vacuum cleaner?

As a homeowner, you no doubt have a need at some point to purchase a vacuum cleaner.  There are a variety of choices on the market today and all of them may suit your needs.  The question that we want to consider today is whether or not it makes sense to have a central vacuum cleaner or a portable vacuum cleaner for your home?    Is either one better than the other?  Lets find out more.

A central vacuum cleaner system was once only found in super expensive homes.  Today, more and more people are finding an advantage in installing a central vac system.  Essentially this involves installing a outlets in your walls that connect with the vacuum brush or suction unit.  The vacuum brush is easily transportable from room to room or even from level to level in your home.  For example, one home I visited had an upstairs vacuum outlet that they could reach all the bedrooms with  when plugging in the vacuum brush unit.  All the debris and dirt was suctioned up through the brush and tubing that connected into the wall.  Behind the wall, vented tubing or ductwork was installed that carried all the dirt back to a central canister which was located in the garage.  There, when the canister got full, the homeowner could empty it and put it back together in a snap. All in all, this was a convenient solution for this home and kept the home looking neat and tidy.

What about a portable vacuum cleaner?  Well in this case, a portable unit can be in the form of a handheld cordelss vacuum, a back pack vacuum cleaner, an upright vacuum cleaner or even a canister vacuum.  All of these are self contained units that are carried and used from room to room.  An advantage of these types of vacuums, is that they can even be used outsidein cars, or boats, or campers.  They are usually fairly lightweight and transportable.  Of course, some models arent very powerful and lugging these vacuum cleaners up and down stairs all the time can be hard on for a homeowner to do forever especially as they get older and limited in mobility.
Which is the best vacuum cleaner?  It really depends on your unique situation.  I can vouch for the fact that the initial price of a central vacuum cleaner system will be higher than just purchasing a portable vacuum cleaner.   However over the lifetime of a home, it is possible that you could actually buy more portable units and replace flooring more often because they are incapable of doing as good a job in cleaning as a very well constructed central vaccum.  Of course every home is different and I suggest visiting your local retail store as well as a vacuum system installer to investigate what makes more sense for your unique situation.
