Cana-Vac LS-490


The LS690 Central Vacuum is a sturdy, powerful, and reliable system that’s become a favourite with home owners in the Okanagan. This is based around the fact that the LS690 uses a 2-fan 5.7” motor directly from Ametek. The motor itself is a bypass system with a cooling fan which helps to keep the LS690 running cool no matter how long it’s in use for. The LS690 is rigid with it’s metal frame. Cana-Vac also opted to mount the motor with bolts instead of springs to ensure the motor stays in place from the factory to the wall. Cana-Vac is so confident with the construction of the LS Series that it’s given all LS vacuums a Limited Lifetime Warranty!


The LS690 is stated to work for homes up to 8’000sq.ft. however, we find optimal use is in homes 4’000sq.ft. and under!

It’s what’s inside that counts.

When you select the Signature™ Series of central vacuum systems, you immediately take a step up with the heavy duty performance and longevity of a Tangential Bypass Motor. Unlike Flow-Thru motors which use vacuumed air to cool the motor, Tangential motors have a dedicated “fresh air” cooling fan for optimal cooling. This maximizes its life expectancy and provides Signature™ with a premium source of power.
