Made In New Zealand
Kiwivac is the only central vacuum manufacturer in New Zealand.
Kiwivac manufactures internal vacuum units in New Zealand, and is a New Zealand-owned company. New Zealand products are known for their high quality and reliability.
Our company has been manufacturing and installing its own systems since 1983. The Kiwivac AVT range of systems is uniquely tailored to the New Zealand environment, combining Kiwi ingenuity with New Zealand parts and labour wherever possible.
Our extensive knowledge of the central vacuum industry, beginning with the manufacturing process and going through installation and service, allows us to provide the best advice.
What’s more, with Kiwivac you’re never without your vacuum. Replacement parts are always available, as we are not dependent on what an overseas manufacturer makes or what spare parts they carry.
More Options Tailored To You
Since we are a manufacturer, we can design a system perfect for your needs. We have the capacity to build central vacuum systems to meet specific/individual requirements.
There are a variety of Kiwivac options to suit every budget and need. We use motors that range from 461 to 868 air watts to ensure the best system for your home.
More Accessories For More Purposes
Your Kiwivac Central Vacuum does so much more than vacuum your floors!
There is an accessory for almost every cleaning need, from washing and polishing floors, cleaning keyboards, dusting bookshelves and more! Kiwivac also has an accessory that enables you to mop and wash your floors all at once! Think of how much time you’d save and how clean your floors would be. There is even an accessory that polishes timber floors.
You may also choose a retractable hose, so that your hose can be tucked away instead of left laying around.
We also carry the largest range of wall inlets, so you can choose from a variety of colours, shapes and sizes.
- Fed up with having to replace portable vacuum cleaners?
- Fed up with the smell, blockages and loss of suction?
- Fed up with having to empty bins or replace bags repeatedly?
- Would you like a cleaner home, where dust and allergens are significantly reduced?
Over the years, how many vacuum cleaners have you bought? Clients choose Kiwivac central vacuum cleaners because they are tired of having to replace portable ones.
A Kiwivac system provides far greater value, as they are far more reliable.
Why Choose Kiwivac
Even the most expensive portable vacuum cleaners come with just a 24-month warranty and a list of exclusions! Kiwivac Central Vacuums offer a comprehensive five-year warranty. Our vacuums are manufactured in New Zealand to the highest standards and designed to provide many years of hassle free vacuuming.
What’s more, unlike other central vacuum systems, there is no obligation to pay for servicing as a condition of your warranty. Since we manufacture our own systems, we are confident in their quality.
A Kiwivac system is more affordable than you would expect and will save you money long term.
It’s worth considering when you think about how many portable vacuum cleaners you’ll buy over the years and at what cost.
With the power unit (dust collection part) being powder-coated steel or stainless steel they are more durable and longer-lasting.
Less time is spent vacuuming because the suction is much more powerful than that of the average portable vacuum cleaner. What's more, you’ll only need to empty your Kiwivac or change the bag a couple of times a year!
Lugging around heavy portable vacuums puts your walls and furniture at risk. It's easy to bump into objects if you aren't paying attention to your manoeuvring.
Kiwivac uses lightweight, pliable hoses that are very easy to move. It is much easier to vacuum stairs without lifting a vacuum up and down.
Kiwivac systems can reduce allergens in the home by 52%, offering relief to anyone with allergies, asthma or eczema. Dirt, dust, and dust mites are removed and contained in a secure unit in the garage, reducing triggers for:
- Breathing conditions
- Skin conditions
Kiwivac Central Vacuums do not blow air, dust, or particles back into the room. Because the power unit is installed in the garage or under the house, 100% of vacuumed dust and dirt is removed from your living areas.
In contrast, portable vacuums admit air, so fine particles are redistributed back inside the home. They can also smell, as the dirt is contained in the vacuum, which is used inside living areas.
Dust Mites and Allergens are Extracted from the Home
House dust mites and their excrement are one of the most common causes of allergies. A home provides a comfortable living environment. Homes have an enjoyable temperature and high relative humidity. These conditions, however, also encourage house dust mites to flourish. House dust mites are present in every household.
Mites do not contain allergens, but their excrement does, which triggers asthma, eczema, and allergic inflammation of nasal mucous membranes. Allergic mite excrement gradually deteriorates into extremely small particles. Eventually, the allergenic dust becomes airborne and we breathe it in.
A portable vacuum blows air out, which redistributes fine particles back into the home. A central vacuum does not stir up dust in the home, and 100% of dirt, dust, and allergens are extracted into a secure unit in the garage.
As you empty your Kiwivac, you will not be exposed to these allergens, which is not the case with other brands of central vacuum cleaners.
The house dust mite live for about four months. During this period, it produces about 200 times its weight in excrement and lays up to 300 eggs. As a result, the concentration of allergens in a room increases exponentially within a very short period of time. Even with regular and thorough house cleaning, dust particles and human skin scales accumulate continuously. These human and animal skin scales provide the primary nutrition for mites, as well as fungal moulds. House dust mites have an average size of 0.3mm. A mite could fit inside the dot at the end of this sentence.
However, with a Kiwivac AVT central vacuum all dust mites and their allergens that are vacuumed up are removed from the living area for good!
You won't get a face full of dust when emptying our vacuums! Kiwivac offers two of the most hygienic and easy-to-use emptying methods.
- Bagged System - Others do not promote or really sell bagged systems. If you want a bag, they sell bags to go with their bagless systems. Our micro filtered sealed bag system completely eliminates dust.
- Bagless Systems - Our patented AVT Slide Plate system is the world's most hygienic bagless system.
Both systems are a breeze to empty. The vacuum system will also protect you from dust and allergens when you empty it - unlike other central vacuum systems.
The suction power of vacuum cleaner is measured in air watts. A top of the line portable vacuum is 250 air watts, while ours range anywhere between 461 - 868 air watts.
Imagine how much more dirt, dust and mites you’ll be vacuuming up with 2 - 3 ½ times the suction power!
Because the suction is so much stronger than an average portable vacuum cleaner, you spend less time vacuuming.
Kiwivac systems only need to be emptied a couple times a year, so you save time that way too!
Our technicians can retrofit central vacuum systems more than 90% of the time. Using the corners of wardrobes, cupboards and pantries, we can install pipes discreetly without any damage.
Our experienced team can make the installation look like it was part of the initial construction of the house, with inlets generally placed in the wall and placed on the floor where absolutely necessary.
With Kiwivac you’re never without your vacuum. As we carry a large range of spare parts for not only our Kiwivac and AVT central vac systems but also a lot of our competitors central vac systems.
