Disposable central vacuum bags are a fantastic way to keep the exhaust clean and the unit fresh and strong. Replacements are available for top and bottom emptying units with elastic and cardboard styles.
Replace the center-weighted cloth filters, mesh filters, or foam filters with a new clean central vacuum filter. Instructions and cross-reference information by brand are available using the orange bar below by brand.
Cartridge filters can be beat out and some can be washed, but they should be replaced about every five years. For a cross-reference use the orange bar below to find a brand and then click on the Motor/Filter link.
