Installing a Central Vacuum System

Project: Modern Colonial, Episode 14, Part 1



Mechanical systems are being installed throughout the project house. Specifically, low-voltage Category 5 wiring for voice and data systems is being run in the home.

Erling Andersen of A.I.M. Radiant Heating is on-site to talk about the "Boiler Room in a Box" radiant heating system, as well as a new central vacuum system being installed. At a separate location, Bob meets with Jeff Van Sloun to learn about Owens Corning's Basement Finishing System. Once the basement system is in place, a new Kahrs floating floor system is installed.
Part 1: Installing a Central Vacuum System
Ron Boffoli from Cape Cod Vacuum Supply is on-site installing the components for a central vacuum system. Bob joins as Boffoli is securing a section of the system's plumbing, and attaching a room inlet onto a stud.

The system consists of a network of PVC pipe that is connected to outlets throughout the house. The entire system is powered by a twin-motor vacuum system that is installed in the basement.
