They have a good quality one at Costco, a Hoover brand. It comes with the Vac pan and extra piping for extending the lines in the basement. Its $679 and the canister is steel, bagless and cover about 3000 sq. ft.

Sears has the best range for various sizes, electric or straight air, options for longer hoses, etc. Not sure about the install, but I'd imagine they do that as well. Sears Carlingwood has a bunch of them on display.

We got one with a 35' hose, and hose wrap. That extra 5 feet makes a huge difference for us.

I do notice that my neighbour's Beam unit is quieter than our Sears jobby, but since it's in the garage anyway that's not a huge issue for us.

Kanata Vac and Sew is a decent source for the Beam.

Vac pans and accessories (connectors, tubing, wiring, etc) seem to be interchangeable and I believe you can also get these at Home Depot or Rona or CT.

Glad this came up. We are having a kick plate installed during the build and are also looking for a system to install when we move in.

Less noise in the garage. Any excess dust also ends up in the garage.

Exactly like GregS said. Put it in the garage, less noise and for the dust. Because if you ever decide to finish the basement, way too much noise. Thus garage, no question!!!

Hey Guys,
Not quite sure if you did or still can, be we are having the CV pipes run/exhaust to the garage for an extra $200 or so. Standard location is that they run to the mechanical room in the basement and exhaust there.

There are no advantages to having it in the basement. It is dusty and noisy.

The garage is by far the best place.
