Why is this unit called a "straight air" central vacuum? As far as I know in my limited knowledge of central vacs, the power unit should have no impact on whether you have a powered brush at the other end. Please help me understand before I take this thing out of the box.
Thank you for contacting Sears!
Air powered has no motor on the brush, good for hard floor and short carpers, the kind where you can just plug into the wall and works, where as
the electric model has a motor that spins the brush, good for digging into the carpet.
Thanks for shopping at Sears! Have a great day!
