Venting the exhaust air from your Beam System outside, is a good idea.

Venting the Central Vacuum System – Exhaust Outside

Venting the exhaust air generated by the central vacuum systems power unit directly outside is one which will appeal to many of our clients, especially those who have family members who suffer from  Respiratory illnesses. This is not a requirement but an option that our dealers make available to their clients.

Independent research proves a Beam Central Vacuum System removes 100% of contacted dirt, dust, mites, pollen and dander from your home. 

Central vacuum systems provide cleaner indoor air by efficiently removing particles without stirring up microscopic dust particles and remitting them into the interior of the home. The vacuum receptacle is vented outside of the living space keeping the air inside free of pollutants.

  • Beam Power units are usually installed in the garages away from the main living areas of the home. 
  • Ideally, this exhaust air should be vented directly outside, this would prevent it from ever being drawn back into the house.
  • Tests carried out have reinforced this idea.  They have indicated that the slight drop in air pressure which occurs when vacuuming in a house can actually draw the air, which contains the exhaust of the cleaning system, in the garage back into the house.
