Here is some help on deciding which package to purchase.

The Small house package is for houses that only need 2 inlets and less than 50 feet of tubing.

The Economy package power unit Model 250 is sufficient for most 1 to 4 bedroom homes (3000 sq. feet), at low altitudes (under 2,500 ft. approximately). The economy package bare floor hose and attachment set has the standard hose turns on the power unit when it is plugged in the vacuum inlet.  It is a simple, inexpensive hose with no internal wires. The economy package will work well in the average-size home.  Higher altitudes use the Model 399 Economy package.

The Deluxe package and with the rest of the packages, the bare floor hose and attachment set has a hose with a the switch in the handle that turns on the power unit at the hose handle.  The electric beater brush hose and attachment set has a hose that has the low volt wire and the 120-volt wire built in the hose.  This hose has the convenience of a switch that turns on the power unit in one position and off in the other and the power unit on and electric brush on in the third position.

The Deluxe system power unit Model 399 has a slightly more powerful unit than the Economy package power unit Model 250.

No accessories are needed unless your home needs more than 3 inlets or you want a vacpan or surface inlet mount.
