Does a Central Vacuum Still Increase Home Value?


It’s 2024 and the vacuum industry seems to have an endless supply of new units, technology and benefits for cleaning our homes. With an endless sea of choices, how does one still place any specific value on any one type of vacuum?

Well, when it comes to central vacuum systems, not much has changed in terms of durability, versatility and reliability. The truth is, they’ve only gotten better.

While the trendy and new stick vacuums can certainly serve a purpose, and in all honesty, keep up with some central vacuums, there’s just no way they can compare to them in overall use and form. As far as getting your house cleaned in the most efficient (and powerful) way possible, today’s central vacuum units are tough to beat.

Just as stick vacuums have leveraged technology, the same can be said for central vacuums as well. These are no longer your ‘grandaddy’s vacuums’, as the saying goes. In fact, they’re not even your parents’ vacuums.

Today’s central systems pack a powerful punch with more suction available at your fingertips then at any time in history. They’re quieter and more efficient as well, offering a long list of benefits to those that enjoy them on a daily basis.

But will they add value to your home?

While no question such as the above is easy to answer, the short answer is yes, they most definitely will. When it comes to the prospective pool of buyers, young and growing families along with pet owners will most certainly opt for a home that is centrally-equipped with a vacuum system over one with a skinny stick vacuum hanging in a closet somewhere.

These vacuums are known for their long-lasting durability and many models come with a 10-year warranty, which gives homebuyers peace of mind when shopping for a new home with a central vacuum already installed. Depending on the age of the unit, they may have many more years ahead of them and if their new vacuum falls under warranty, that’s a deal that is tough to beat.

Another dimension to this argument lies in the fact that central vacuum systems can be a challenge and expensive to install into an existing home. While it’s nothing that will actually break the bank, if the previous owner went to the trouble of having one installed, it will save you a lot of time and money. Installations in existing homes can be complicated depending on the layout of your home and access to interior walls and often include a lot of cutting and drywall work to get the outlets and piping in place.

While the answer ultimately depends on what home buyers are looking for, it’s fairly safe to assume that when compared to a similar home equipped without a central vacuum system, buyers are far more likely to select the home equipped with a relatively new system rather than one without. But that’s not to say that there is no value in installing a new system into your home. As with most cases we see, homeowners seldom regret a new central vacuum system and always seem to get their money’s worth from their investment.
