What is a Central Vacuum Power Unit?

As the heart of a NuTone Central Vacuum System, the Power Unit is a motor that wall-mounts away from the main living area, like in your garage or basement, and connects to special tubing run throughout the walls of your house. This tubing connects the motor to in-wall outlets installed at convenient locations in different rooms. All you carry around is the vacuum hose, which plugs into and receives power from these outlets.

About the VX1000 Bagged Power Unit

If you prefer a bagged vacuum system for your larger home, the VX1000 is your solution. This bagged model collects debris in extra large 8-gallon 2-ply disposable filter bags, so you can make the most of your time when vacuuming. And with better filtration, you won't be spreading dust around, because microscopic dust particles are exhausted to the exterior of your home!

The motor's disposable collection bags feature HEPA (High Efficiency Particle Air) rated media, anti-microbial protection, and anti-stick technology to catch dust and bacteria without releasing it back into the air. Exposure to dust and dirt is also minimized by the bag's self-closing collar.

Additionally, the motor features an easy access front-facing door to make changing bags exceptionally simple. The control panel displays how much debris is in the bag via progressive indicator lights, which alert you when to change the bag, so there is no guesswork. Typically, bags need changing only every six months. If you don't empty it, the unit will shut down automatically to avoid rupturing the bag.

Additional Features of NuTone Central Vacuum Motors

NuTone Central Vacuum Power Units provide superior soil removal, filtration, efficiency, and minimal carpet wear. The motor's internal sound suppression system also significantly reduces noise, so you won't hear it through the walls.

Dual vacuum air intakes are located on both sides of the VX1000 for connection of the trunk lines, and for flexibility of choice in installation locations. A 6-foot power cord is included for even more convenience.

Note: The VX1000 requires 8-Gallon NuTone Vacuum Bags (VX3918, sold separately).

Today's Most Efficient Way To Clean!

With their powerful motors, NuTone built-in central vacuum systems pull dust, dirt and allergens from the living environment more effectively than portable vacuums, trapping them within the filtration system of the power unit, away from the living environment. The central vacuum system can also be used more effectively to "power dust" furniture and living space by removing the dust from the living areas rather than just moving it around. And unlike conventional vacuum cleaners, a NuTone central vacuum system is a long-lasting built-in convenience that actually adds value to your home.
