I have a central vac system but it was not working too well...we put it in when we built the house almost 7 years ago, and it seemed to be not as powerful. Once I emptied who knows how much dirt from the main canisters in the basement, which should have been done every month (ha) and was likelier a year at least, it helped, but the hoses were broken. I made a service call to get new heads and hoses but in the meantime bought a Dyson at Bed Bath and Beyond, it is yellow and has a roller ball thing. IT ROCKS. We cleaned an oriental in my kitchen that had been done a couple of days earlier, and you cannot image what the Dyson got up, the hair and dust that was in that carpet which had just been done...amazing. My housekeeper loves this thing now, and even though I am getting the new stuff for the central vac, I think this Dyson will be getting a lot of use from now on! Just wanted to share if anyone was debating getting one. They are pricey but sometimes BB and B has 20% off coupons...worth using on this!
