Default ACV central vacs

Hi, Greg or anyone else...I was recently quoted for a "All Canadian Vac Central vacuum" It looks like the Canavac all steel unit. The installer says he lives by this vac and that he has one himself. The motor is all metal and the unit is warranteed for 5yrs. I went on line and checked the specs, from what I know it looks like a great machine but searching on the net...it dosn't seem like a very commonly used machine. I used to have a Eureka and it worked well. His price was reasonnable for the Heavy duty installed, he would have to run the pipe to the garage cause the builder has the rough in to the basement. But anyhow..does anyone know about or used this machine? what are your thoughts about it?

No. Bagless units with an inverted filter do not require venting to outside.

Well normally one should only get enough product for their needs.

Bigger motor = more power (likely more than what's needed) = higher hydro bills = Mr Suzuki showing up at your home and turning off your CVac

I was considering this one as well, but in the end didn't go with it because I wanted bagless.

Actually, in this case, bigger motor = more suction = you can do a better job, faster, and your overall hydro use will decrease. Plus the unit will last longer, and thus won't need to be replaced as often, saving energy and raw materials.
