Broan CX450 Power Unit

Broan CX450 SpecsBroan seeks to achieve the highest reliability standards in terms of cleaning with all their vacuum cleaners, whether central or conventional, which makes the Broan CX450 central vacuum cleaner one of the very inspired choices one can make to satisfy their vacuuming needs. Very quiet yet highly efficient, this appliance is excellent at its job of clearing the indoor air of microscopic allergens that can affect their user’s health while reducing the costs at a minimum.

Find The Right Central Vacuum for Your Home

The Broan CX450 central vacuum cleaner is the entry model of its series, being designed to satisfy various cleaning needs on small surfaces of up to 3,000 square meters, whether used for residential purposes or limited commercial ones. The system that ensures the cleaning performance of this appliance is built around a one-stage motor with a 1.74 HP rating designed to produce 8.5 amps and operate at a voltage of 120 volts. The proper absorption of the dust particles is facilitated by an airflow of 100 cubic feet per minute or an equivalent of 47.2 liters per second, while the water lift is set at 90 inches. Finally, the number of air watts produced reaches a threshold of 450. All these values are indicators of a very powerful motor, but Broan has proven repeatedly that high power is not synonymous to loud noise. The CX450 central vacuum cleaner makes no exception as it has an integrated muffler specifically designed to minimize the noise levels. The convenience standards are also very high with no special wiring being required, just a recommendation to provide a dedicated 15 amp circuit in order for the power unit to function properly.

The filtration system of the Broan CX450 central vacuum cleaner is also thought out to the smallest detail, including both a primary system and a secondary one. The former involves corrosion resistant disposable bags which can fit in up to 6 gallons or 22.7 liters of dust so that they only have to be emptied twice a year on average. The emptying operation is very simple, presupposing a simple squeeze of the filter upon removal, thus adding to the ease of maintenance characteristic to this particular vacuum model. There is also an optional permanent filter which can be mounted on the appliance for even more ease of maintenance and greater convenience.

The one-stage motor and the filtration systems of the Broan CX450 central vacuum cleaner are encapsulated in a black metal body that measures 11 inches in diameter and 40.5 inches in height and is very easy to mount on the walls thanks to a special wall mount bracket and the intake ports set up on both sides of the power unit. Therefore, anyone can mount this UL listed and lifetime warranted appliance outside their living area with minimum effort. However, once they do that, they can expect to achieve maximum performance levels in cleaning. In the end, what the Broan CX450 central vacuum cleaner proposes is maximum performance with minimum input both physically and financially.
