Review by William B. in Elmwood Park, IL
Project: Repair or Service a Central Vacuum System
Do not hire this company they do not know what they're doing they burnt out the motor on the central vac system and it was my responsibility to purchase another one they didn't take any ownership
Response by Hi-Tech Vacuums: I was hired by the builder to move an existing line with a first-generation Filtex on/off button-type inlet valve, which had been discontinued 40-years ago and which was wired with four-pair thin telephone wiring, as opposed to today's 18-2 wiring. We measured the new location to ensure that a 30-foot standard hose would adequately clean the area. We next inspected the hallway valve, which was clogged with debris. This suggested a motor problem, which the builder denied. I consulted with the H-P Product Manager about the telephone wiring used with the old on/off Filtex valves. He said that crossing low-voltage wiring would not result in a motor failure. I informed the builder that no standard on/off hose would work with the larger, OD Filtex inlet valves. When the unit failed, the builder and I agreed upon a major discount on a new unit, including parts and labor. I also made two trips at no charge to provide additional fittings. In over 33 years in the central vacuum business with a 4.96 Home Advisor rating record, I have never encountered a builder who was rehabbing the entire home, but still insisted on retaining a 40-year old, outdated central vacuum system with only one working motor.

We called Hi-Tech Vacuums and John was out the next day early in the morning to fix our central vac system. He explained what he was going to do and the possible outcomes and the steps he might have to take to resolve out problem. He was able to fix our problem in a very short time and our system was up and running. John was very professional and we would highly recommend him for any work on your central vac system.

Seal of Approval

What is the screening process that Service Professionals go through in order to become members of the HomeAdvisor network?

  1. Verify Trade License
    HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
  2. Verify Insurance
    As a part of our screening process, we encourage professionals to carry general liability insurance. We require coverage for hundreds of services.
  3. Verification of State Business Filings
    For business types that require a Secretary of State filing, we confirm that the business is in good standing in the state in which it is located.
  4. Criminal Records Search
    HomeAdvisor uses 3rd party data sources to conduct a criminal search for any relevant criminal activity associated with the owner/principal of the business.
  5. Sex Offender Search
    We confirm that the owner/principal is not listed on the official state Sex Offender web site in the state in which the owner/principal of the company is located.
  6. Bankruptcy Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the history of the principal/owner of the business for bankruptcy filings by or against them.
  7. Legal Search for Civil Judgments
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for state level civil legal judgments entered against them.
  8. Liens Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for liens placed against them.
  9. Identity Verification (SSN)
    HomeAdvisor verifies the social security number(s) of the owner/principal for identity check purposes. This check applies primarily to smaller business entities.
  10. Identity Verification (Reverse Phone Lookup)
    We conduct a reverse business phone lookup to identify records matching the phone number information provided by the business.

NOTE: Member service professional information confirmed as described above may change or expire over time; while HomeAdvisor attempts to maintain accurate and up-to-date information, and confirms changes when notified, we cannot guarantee that profile and screening information is accurate.
