Central vac with HAH: outlet location ?
We are building a new 2-story home with basement and, based on all your helpful raves, will be installing a central van with HAH. We want to minimize # of hoses, hoping for one 60' hose on each floor.
My question is WHERE to locate the hose outlet ? For maximizing hose length, seems the hose should originate from a center-of-house location, and unfortunately that's our foyer rather than kitchen, and upstairs landing rather than kids' rooms. And I understand why the outlet should be waist-high rather than near the floor, but it's kind of ugly. I'm wondering if any of you CV/HAH owners hide the outlet behind a cabinet door, in a closet, or have other clever ideas for concealing it when not in use. Or does that make the hose less efficient or more burdensome to use, and I should just accept the eyesore ? Any guidance would be greatly appreciated.
