    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Powerful vacuum unit - question is in durability. I will first say that we have had this unit in a new house with a Hide-A-Hose system and it has performed flawlessly and with plenty of suction and air flow for the 50' hose stations and sweep ports. The first unit we got was split along both side seams and had to be returned and replaced. This incident made me suspicious of the plastic housing's durability versus the metal casings of most other central vacuum power units. As others have noted this unit does run on the hot side, but it has not been an issue for us. The unit is located in a garage utility room so noise is not an issue. Eight year warranty is a definite plus. The two Ametek/Lamb motors used are in the "Air-Watt" series that get high marks for durability. Time will tell how well this unit will perform, but so far, so good. Recommended.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great product at a great price. I am very pleased with my central vacuum cleaner. It was easy to install and worked well in my existing outlets.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Product, nothing to wright home to mother about but good, We fine it's a good over all unit. Some improvements can be made, like disconnecting the hose from the piping for the vacuum head. Snap on but hard to push and pull at same time.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product has been wonderful!! I have had my nutone for about 5 years and it's been very reliable. I did have to replace it one time, when I called the company and explained what had happened they did not give me any problems and sent out a new one within a week. I appreciate the service and would recommend this product to my friends and family.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Vacuum We love this vacuum. Really good suction and great warranty. After five years, we had a problem with the motor arcing. The whole unit was replaced, no questions asked. We took the old one down, put the new one up and connected it to power. That was it! We would definitely buy it again. Another good feature is that you just have to empty it -- no bags to buy.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great, now that the bugs are worked out. Initially, I had lots of problems. After about 2 years with problems, the factory gave me a complete new updated power unit under warranty. Thanks! With the new power unit and installation improvements that I devised, the system now works fine. The power unit puts out so much heat that it melted the standard 2" PVC input and output pipes. The exhaust pipe melted back for several feet. To correct the problems, I installed a 2 1/2" PVC heavy wall pipe for the exhaust. The bigger pipe allowed the exhaust to expand upon exiting the unit, which allows it to cool a bit. The heavier wall pipe allows the pipe to handle more heat before melting. I also used 6" long pieces of 2" metal pipe to transition from the unit to the plastic pipe for both intake and exhaust. This handles the strain from the connection hoses and radiator clamps along with the heat. At first I hated my system. Now that I have the bugs worked out of it, it works great and I love it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from great suction I have a family of six and really appreciate only having to empty the canister every few months and that what I vacuum is removed from the house to under the house to the canister so there is no smell. I mainly use the hard floor attachment in the kitchen area, and compared to the barely any suction of my old central vac this one is fantastic. We have a long haired dog and it removes the hair from everything with one pass- there is no going over something several times to get it to pick it up- It will suck up a quarter with such force that you will hear it hit the pipes at every turn all the way to the canister. Note the electricity required, it is not typical and you may need an electrician. I also love that it has an eight year warranty. I have had mine three years and use it way more than I imagine the normal person does. It is also quieter than my old unit.

    I have a broan CV40 vac and need to replace it any suggestions?

    Asked by: Amy
    Thank you for your question on the model CV40 central vacuum system. The closest replacement for the CV40 would be the VX550C. You could go to the VX1000C, but you would need to have a 220 VAC line to operate it. The VX550C operates on 120 VAC.
