Beam 225 Central Vacuum

The Beam 225C is the basic line of vacuum cleaners is the starting point in Beam’s tradition of high-quality vacuum cleaners. The Beam 225C central vacuum cleaner is the entry model, being followed on the market by the 275C and 295C models. Some of the particularities of these three products were retained by their successors, namely the four Serenity QS models and the three Serenity IQS vacuums. The Beam Basic line was also known as the Classic series of Beam vacuums.

As already mentioned, the Beam 225C central vacuum cleaner is the entry model of its series, being able to clean floor plans with a total surface of up 3,500 square feet. This appliance conceals its power very well, appearing as a small vacuum cleaner with a diameter of eleven inches and a height of thirty-three. However, there is greatness lying behind these dimensions and the shipping weight of twenty-eight pounds of this central vacuum system, the power generated by its motor being quite surprising. The 550 air watts, 122 cubic feet of airflow per minute, 120 volts and 14.3 amps as well as the 138-inch waterlift recommend the 225C vacuum cleaner for use at locations that feature any number of outlets lower than five.

Naturally, the Beam 225 central vacuum system has some of the technical features that have made Beam vacuum cleaners popular all over the world. One of them is the self-cleaning HEPA filter, which protects the motor whenever the vacuum cleaner is in use and then empties itself into the dirt bin, which features a window, whenever it is not. The capacity of the dirt bin on this vacuum is four gallons. It has also been demonstrated that the filtering action performed by the 225C vacuum cleaner is highly beneficial to allergy sufferers, who are also relieved from the dangers of filter replacement and screen cleaning. In fact, HEPA filters in general are known to be beneficial to those with an allergy or asthma condition. The filtered cyclonic action of this appliance complements the high power generated by its motor and its steel construction, creating a balance between the performance achieved by the vacuum cleaner and the costs it involves.

Additional Information Regarding the Beam 225 Central Vacuum

A short list of other technical features the Beam 225C central vacuum cleaner has includes a venting option, a utility valve on unit and a logic controller, all specific to the Beam Basic series but retained by the other two series that followed too. As part of the Beam Basic line, this vacuum cleaner does not feature an anti-vibration mounting system or a motor venting filter and there is no anti-microbial agent acting to protect the dirt bin against harmful organisms.

The proper functioning of the Beam 225C system and its performance are guaranteed for a period of seven years. In fact, all the three appliances of the Beam Basic line are backed up by a seven-year warranty, which should clear all doubts regarding their ability to perform superbly while being the manufacturer’s basic line of central vacuum cleaners and therefore less advanced than their successors from a technological standpoint.

Care and Maintenance for the Beam 225

Your Beam Built-in Vacuum comes with a lifetime limited warranty (see complete warranty details elsewhere in this pamphlet). It will give you a lifetime of trouble-free service by following some simple guidelines:

  • Motor never needs lubrication. Bearings are permanently sealed and lubricated.
  • Motor brushes should be checked by your authorized Beam dealer after 500 hours of use.
  • Power unit can be dusted off with a clean, soft cloth. Caution: do not use liquid cleaners or water as an electrical shock may occur.
  • The Beam 225 is not to be tamperd with. Do not place anything on top of power unit as this could restrict cooling air to the motor, causing the motor to overheat.
  • Do not attempt to pick up anything that will not go through the cleaning tool or hose end. Do not use the system to pick up construction debris.
  • Do not attach anything else to the system’s electrical power source. Be sure that a properlysized protected circuit is used for your unit’s electrical requirements. Consult your authorized Beam dealer for the correct size.
  • After removing the hose from the inlet, hold the inlet door open for a few seconds to help clear dirt from the vacuum tubing and make sure the power unit has been turned off.
  • To ensure proper cleaning, use only one inlet at a time.
  • If service is ever required, have it performed by your authorized Beam dealer.

Filter maintenance for the Beam 225

Beam’s exclusive filter is permanent and selfcleaning. However, if cleaning is desired, just follow these five easy steps:

  1. Remove the dirt receptacle.
  2. Wrap a large plastic trash bag around the lower portion of the power unit, holding it firmly in place.
  3. Grasp the sewn-in weight at the bottom of the filter through the bag (as shown) Shake vigorously Dirt will
    drop into bag.
  4. Carefully remove the plastic bag from the unit. Then empty the dirt receptacle into the bag, as well.
  5. place the dirt receptacle on the power unit. Remember, any dirt that is spilled can be easily vacuumed by attaching the hose to the utility inlet and activating the power unit with the manual switch.


With Beam, you can rest easy.
