Professional or do-it-yourself.
About 95% of existing homes — regardless of age — can be retrofitted with a BEAM Central Vacuum System. The key to success is planning a pipe system with a minimum number of inlets and elbows (turns in pipe) to keep labor time and costs at a minimum while still giving you the vacuum cleaning flexibility only a central vacuum system offers.
If you're remodeling now, or planning to, a quick call to your local BEAM Dealer will allow you to add a BEAM central vacuum system to your plans inexpensively. Your BEAM dealer/distributor can provide professional installation by trained, experienced installers — an important advantage in a system you'll be using for perhaps the next 25 years.
