Find The Right Central Vacuum for Your Home

Supplied with a limited guarantee with no expiration date, the Broan VX12000C central vacuum cleaner is a heavy duty appliance that addresses the most demanding and pretentious of customers, so it outsmarts its predecessors from a technical point of view. For starters, it features two two-stage universal bypass motors, which allow it to use up to 4.8 HP. The air watt production is increased to 1040 whereas the airflow and water lift reach some very convenient values of 230 cubic feet per minute or 108.5 liters per second, respectively 130 inches or 3.3 meters. As far as the amperage and voltage are concerned, they are set at 13.5 amps and 240 volts, thus allowing the use of this appliance with dedicated 20 amp circuits. Although designed to produce an impressive amount of power so as to meet the needs of larger surfaces, the VX12000C vacuum cleaner does not produce much noise. In fact, it is characterized by the lowest noise levels in its class thanks to the internal sound suppression system it features.

The Broan VX12000C central vacuum cleaner is also designed to impress with its filtration skills as it has two filtration systems. The primary one consists of a self-cleaning permanent HEPA filter with a non-stick membrane which prevents the particles from settling on the filter whereas the secondary filtration system is a screen one. The choice of the debris pail is very convenient, its large size allowing the user to empty it with minimum effort whenever it has stored seven gallons of dust, which is the equivalent of 26.5 liters. This is usually the case within intervals of approximately six months, but there is no risk of overload for a set of progressive full lights signal the need to empty it.

The Broan VX12000C central vacuum cleaner also stands out through its durability, its housing being resistant to corrosion and thermoplastic. As for its dimensions, they reach 11.5 inches in diameter, 17.5 inches in width and 39 inches in height. Moreover, the oval shape of the housing is highly advantageous both space-wise and filtration-wise, reducing the space needs for the installation of the appliance and allowing a better performance of the cyclonic filtration system. Easy to connect to the line thanks to the two air intakes found on both sides of the power unit, the VX12000C central vacuum cleaner manufactured by Broan is also available within a kit that addresses wall-to-wall carpeting homes with a 32-inch crushproof hose, an electro brush and a complete set of cleaning tools.
