Help & Products for Electrolux Central Vacuum:
We recommend upgrading the basic hose to an electric hose with pig tail if your house has a lot of carpeted flooring, as this will allow for compatibility with electric power heads to ultimately provide better carpet cleaning.
We recommend upgrading to a low voltage hose if your house has a lot of hardwood floors, this will allow you to turn the vacuum on and off with the flip of a switch from the handle. This will save power, and make a better cleaning experience.
If you have any questions regarding your hose, or are curious at the advantages of each hose, please check out our Hose Help Center or give us a call at 1-800-971-7172.
