Basic Description

From Wikipedia:

"A central vacuum cleaner (also known as built-in or ducted) is a type of vacuum cleaner appliance, installed into a building as a semi-permanent fixture. Central vacuum systems are designed to remove dirt and debris from homes and buildings, sending dirt particles through tubing installed inside the walls to a collection container in a remote utility space. The power unit is a permanent fixture, typically installed in a basement, garage, or storage room, along with the collection container. Inlets are installed in walls throughout the building that attach to power hoses and other central vacuum accessories to remove dust, particles, and small debris from interior rooms. Most power hoses typically have a power switch located on the handle."

Benefits to the OSE ecosystem

This could be a useful integration into OSE technologies such as the Seed Eco-Home and or the RepLAb. This would be placed near AC/DC wall outlets and allow for ease of cleaning, and ease running tools that require suction/vacuum shaving/dust removal. It would also allow for an open vacuum cleaner to be constructed without worrying about size/power constraints.


It is rather easy to install; most systems involve just the vacuum unit connected to a series of PVC pipes that lead to the ports throughout the house.
