When is a central vacuum installed in a new home in Auckland

Building a new home in New Zealand is an expensive and complex process with lots of important decisions needed along the way. What type of cladding and roofing? Flooring options? What type door hardware? Do I install smart wiring? What will be the source of heating? What type of tapware? Which appliances should I install?

We are often asked ‘how do we install a central vacuum system into a new home’? The most common steps in installing a central vacuum system is:

  • Email us your council stamped building plans and we can provide you with options, pricing and an example illustration location plan for your consideration. Options include the model and type of inlet valves you want on your wall.
  • Alternatively we can meet you on site once your frames are up and we can measure up for the central vacuum system and provide you with options, pricing and an example illustration location plan for your consideration.
  • Once you decide to install a central vacuum system we will meet you onsite for a walk-through where we confirm the locations of the inlet valves and power unit in your home.
  • After the walk-through we will install the central vacuum system ducting and wiring. This is usually just after the plumber has completed their pre-pipe installation and will be before the council ‘Pre-Line’ inspection.
  • Once your house has been painted and is secure, the central vacuum system power unit is installed and commissioned. This is before the final council inspection for your CCC.

Sometimes we will work with your architect and builder to produce an installation plan where the installation is complex. However council does not need information from us (such as producer statements) at any stage of the planning, consent and final inspection stage.
