Very pleased

"I went from using a regular vacuum cleaner to this central vac system and all I can say is WOW!!! The suction is fantastic and it is not loud at all. I have it installed in my furnace room in the basement. The attachments make it easy to do stairs, furniture, hardwood and tile floors, and of course carpets."

great central vac

"Delivered within a week, easy to install myself, although instructions could be a bit more clear re: wiring etc, but easy to figure out with a little help, i like the mount, easy to install for 1 person...the muffler is nice, quite quiet, works great (only used once so far - but the rugs are super super clean now, great suction), lightweight, like the option of the extending pole. So far so good! Hope it lasts many years!!!!"

Very Pleased

Pros: quiet, great suction, easy to install
Cons: would have been nice to have a longer elect cord..
"This is the first central vacuum we have owned so it would be difficult for me to compare with others, however, we do have an high end cannister model; which we have had for 30 years; and there is no comparison. I placed it in our basement and the noise level is very low... you can hardly hear it when being used on the main floor. The suction is great and the design of the power head is that you can get under most low furniture.... We are very pleased with the unit.. I should also note that the unit was received within a week of ordering and we were advised every step of the way.."

Beater Bar Died

"The Beater bar never worked well and today it finally died after only 8 months. Plastic chunks blew everywhere and our house smells of burnt plastic. Constantly tried to keep the bar clean in hopes it would work better. Obviously it was never meant to last.
Very Disappointed."

Wow!

Pros: excellent cleaning power, competitive pricing
Cons: only one suction connection at power unit
"Looked at other central vacuum units and settled on the Frigidaire Model CV7501EK. This model is apparently part of the Ureka-Electrolux-Beam family so it has a good pedigree. Ordered it on Monday and arrived on Friday-all in one box. Installation was straight forward. Our is installed in the basement with a dedicated 20 amp 120 volt circuit with 12/2 wire. We can plug the powerhead into the same circuit without worrying about the breaker tripping. One slight disadvantage was it only has one inlet on the right so I had to install an additional wall inlet-no big deal. I really liked how the debris pail comes off with a slight turn instead of clips. The muffler does a great job cutting down on the sound. I tried it without the muffler and it really cuts down on the noise. it has an On/Off button and a green power light on the side. Once installed I turned the unit on to see how tight the system was-in a few seconds the amount of air discharged was negligible indicating the system was leak free. Powerhead has a belt driven beater bar and a three position handle switch 1)vacuum on 2)system off 3)vacuum and powerhead on. The powerhead has no height adjustment because it has a floating height adjustment that works great. No need to change the height when moving to different carpets or floor coverings. The wall connection on the light weight 30 foot hose has a 7 foot cord for plugging into a nearby 120 V outlet for the powerhead. The powerhead even comes with an extra belt. It also comes with a neat telescoping wand that easily extends when using the brushes. The system did a great job picking up dog hair and has superior suction and cleaning ability compared to our portable canister vacuum."
