Cen­tral vac­uum of­fers more power and longevity

The Glengarry News - Glengarry Supplement - - News - BY STEVEN WAR­BUR­TON News Staff

If you’re in the mar­ket for a new vac­uum cleaner, you may want to stop by the Miron Elec­tron­ics booth at the Alexandria trade show over the May 1-3 week­end.

That’s be­cause the Green Val­ley-based com­pany will be de­mon­strat­ing its new line of cen­tral air vac­uum sys­tems.

Gisèle Miron says she started selling the vac­uum sys­tems last fall so she could give more work to the 20 or so tech­ni­cians Miron Elec­tron­ics em­ploys.

She ad­mits she’s only sold a hand­ful of units so far but she hopes to be­gin mar­ket­ing them more in the fu­ture.

Although the cen­tral air sys­tems are slightly more ex­pen­sive than your av­er­age ma­chine, buy­ers are likely to get their money’s worth in suc­tion power and longevity.

“They’re more pow­er­ful than an in­di­vid­ual unit,” says Mrs. Miron, adding that her cen­tral air units – the Québec-based Cy­clo­vac – come with 10-year war­ranties.

As far as in­stal­la­tion times go, Mrs. Miron says that de­pends en­tirely on how big your house is and how many out­lets you re­quire.

“A bun­ga­low with three out­lets should take about two hours,” she says.

Another ben­e­fit to the cen­tral air sys­tem is that home­own­ers won’t have to drag a bulky vac­uum cleaner around the house.

Now all they have to do is plug the hose into a wall and get to work.
