Central Vacuum Service and Repair in Keswick
Central vacuums are immensely popular in Keswick and Richmond Hill largely because they require very little maintenance when compared to some of the more traditional types of vacuums. However, it’s important to avoid confusing “minimal” maintenance requirements with “zero” maintenance requirements, as if the condition of your central vacuum isn’t checked on a regular basis, it will likely deteriorate to the point that it will no longer function effectively and central vacuum repair will be required. This is why we always tell our clients in Keswick & Richmond Hill that has a new system installed, that an annual central vacuum service is highly recommended to ensure their system continues to function at optimum capacity.
Building a Custom Home? Wondering what to prewire? And what about all the new wireless technology? Do you think if it’s worth it to prewire?
Don’t believe it when people tell you that everything will be wireless in a few years. The best way to integrate electronics into your home at any time is to install cables that are dedicated to the data transfer required, whether you are talking about audio, video, cameras, intercom or security. There is no one best way to pre-wire; it depends on what you want to allow for. This quick point-form guide tells you what to think about first when considering the pre-wiring of a project.
Remember that just because it is wired for it doesn’t mean you need to spring for the cost of all the electronics at the start. As long as the correct cables are in place before you close up the walls and ceilings, the house will be ready for electronic upgrades at any time in the future. What you want is to be able to easily access whatever cables may be required to meet future needs as they arise. You can never put in too much Cat 5e or Cat 6 (Cat6 recommended), and if you pre-wire with fibre optics, even without connections on the end, you’ll be up to speed for most of what’s coming.
For these applications, you want to use wire.
As a general rule, We like to prewire (rough) the following items in new construction and remodels:
- TVs, Projectors & Video Distribution
