  • Bagged version power units feature a sleek design allowing them to mount closely against the wall so you can make the most of your space. The power unit has a revolutionary internal sound suppression system that provides quiet performance. A convenient status light on the power unit indicates when the replaceable bag is full and needs to be changed. New motor designs have up to 5 times more cleaning power than conventional vacuums. With better filtration, you won’t be spreading the dust around -- because microscopic dust particles are exhausted to the exterior of your home.

    • Designed for larger homes up to 12,000 square feet, this power unit has a dual 2-stage motor that delivers 1040 air watts of power, making it the most powerful unit in its class delivering deep cleaning and better filtration than any conventional vacuum; UL Listed for your confidence
    • Extra large eight gallon 2-ply disposable filter bags feature HEPA (High Efficiency Particle Air) rated media, anti-microbial protection, and anti-stick technology to trap dust and bacteria better than ever which means your environment stays cleaner longer
    • Easy access door to change the debris collection bag; typically bags need changing only every six months and have a self-closing collar which minimizes exposure to dust and dirt; that means simple maintenance and a cleaner home with improved indoor air quality
    • Internal sound suppression system significantly reduces noise, so even though it’s mounted outside the living area, you won’t hear it through the walls
    • Progressive indicator lights alert you when to empty the bag so there is no guesswork; featuring a true “bag-full” light, the unit will shut down automatically to avoid rupturing the bag; a great safety feature that makes your life easier (order replacement bag 3-pack VX3918)
    • Dual vacuum air intakes are located on both sides of the unit for connection of the trunk lines and for flexibility of choice in installation locations; six foot power cord included for even more convenience
    • NuTone Central Vacuum Power Units provide superior soil removal, filtration, efficiency and carpet wear and are recognized in the industry as products you can trust

  • VX1000 is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 11.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Central Vacuum Our VX1000 was installed in our new 5500 sqft house in 2008. I bought and 60ft garage hose for cleaning the garage and it is wonderful. The vacuum is very powerful and since the vacuum is inside the garage, the noise level is acceptable. The vacuum strength level can be adjusted at the hose handle, which is very useful because the vacuum is so strong it can otherwise overpower the object you're cleaning and even draw in things untended. It has performed flawlessly until now, 2018. It seems the low-voltage circuit that is wired to every "hose outlet" has a failed (a low-voltage relay). The relay is no doubt inexpensive whereas the entire circuit board (which very likely is OK) costs Consequently the unit will not stop unless we run out in the garage and turn it off. I've searched for a new relay only, but can only find the entire circuit board at $220.00 plus tax and shipping.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Value, Exceptional Customer Support by NuTone After much research I ordered the NuTone VX1000 to replace a 20 year old central vac. The unit arrived promptly, installation was a breeze but after a week I had some issues. Contacted NuTone customer support and the problem was resolved quickly to my satisfaction. Customer support was exceptional - very happy with my choice.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from 6 years and still going great I was hesitant first to buy this brand, known that is made in China. But with my limited budget at that time I took the plunge. I don't regret that decision at all and actually I could not be happier even if I went with a more known and expensive brand. The machine is loud (very loud), but I have it in my garage, so the noise is dampened a little. What I'm impressed about is the performance and the customer service. The performance does not degrade even after the bag is full, it simply keeps going and going as if the bag is just been installed. The suction power is unbelievable. I did the installation myself which is very easy and any one with basic common sense can do. I hired an electrician to run the 220V needed for this unit. It looks I hired an unqualified electrician because he connected the wire somehow incorrectly and the vacuum refused to start so I thought there's something wrong with machine itself and I called customer service and told them the machine is defective. They just asked me to provide a copy of a receipt and I got a replacement unit shipped to my door in 2 days. Obviously the other unit did not start either, so I called a another real electrician this time, who just fixed the connection at my wall switch and the vacuum started immediately. It's been around 6 years now and this Nutone VX1000 still running great.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Disapponted My husband talked me into buying this product wish I had not but maybe I should give it more time. 1. There are 2 reset buttons which I must always depress. 2.Lugging the long hose from lower level to 3rd level is difficult because t the ridges on the hose get caught at every corner. 3. The unit on/loff switch should stay in the off position. I must but it on the on position to make it work otherwise the switch on the hose will not work. 4. I love the quietness but it takes me 3-4 trips up and down stairs troubleshooting reset buttons, disconnecting cord from unit, tripping breaker switch. It's a real hassle. 5. replacement bags are very costly $$$

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good performance but a little expensive for the unit and somewhat noisey Replaced a CV850 with this unit. It works good but is priced a little high for this unit noticed that it has very inflated msrp pricing so its not really that good of a value, also noted that motors are not American made and are of a chinese lower quality than other brands. its also a little on the noisey side, the engineers could have installed better sound mufflers and baffles on the unit. Units in this price range should come with at least a basic tool kit included.

  • Noise level

    How noise is this unit comparing to PP650? You have listed the noise level for PP650 but not for this or VX1000C? And which is quieter? VX1000 or VX1000C?

    The exhaust air on my VX1000 is very hot. What is causing this?

    Asked by: Bob
    Thank you for your question on the model VX1000 central cleaning system. The exhaust air is pulled over the two motors to help keep them cooled down. The hot exhaust is normal.

    I want to replace my CV-750 unit with a new one. Cant find it.

    Asked by: Dean
    Thank you for your question on the model CV750 central cleaning system. The CV750 is obsolete and no longer available through the factory. You may be able to do an internet search to find someone that still has one or you can get repair parts through the “Shop for Parts” link at the top of our web site page. The current replacement for the CV750 would be the VX550.

    Unit shuts down and bag full light comes on, but bag is new.

    Unit can be recycled and it works for 15-20 seconds then shuts itself off.
