Standard central vacuum hoses use no on/off switch and have no wiring within. When a standard hose is inserted into the valve it turns the machine on, and when removed it turns the machine off. They are perfect for garages, basements, and other surfaces that donít have carpet and require a power head. You can purchase standard central vacuum hoses individually or in whole accessory packages made to suite youíre cleaning needs.
A low voltage central vacuum hose is similar to a standard, but has an on/off button located in the hose handle. A low voltage hose is primarily used with a turbo power head that uses the suction of the vacuum to power the brush roll. These type are also more convenient for homeowners because they are able to shut the machine on/off conveniently with the flip of a switch.
An electric direct connect central vacuum hose has 110v running through the hose and is used to power an electric power head. These types of hoses connect to the 110v directly at the valve and do not have a cord that plugs into an electric inlet. Generally older homes are not fitted with direct connect technology. They are the standard for installation into new construction homes.
An electric pigtail end hose is the most common type of central vacuum hose on the market. These type have 110v running through it to power an electric power head. They also have a cord at the end where the hose plugs into the inlet valve. This cord is then plugged into a close by electrical inlet. These types of hoses are generally used in homes with at least 30 percent carpet. These homes require an electric power head, and therefore an electric hose to power it.
