Customer Questions & Answers

Can I purchase a power unit only as a replacement for and old Nutone and use same wiring and piping?

Hose, I see nothing mentioned about a hose, Is there one ? Length etc would be nice.

Asked by: Honky
No hose, this is just the power unit. Also, if starting from scratch, I recommend 2" PVC rather than the flimsy 'central vac' piping .

Can I replace the power unit only to adapt to a kennmore switch system and continue to use my current hoses

Asked by: Anonymous
Yes- you may have to modify connections at the unit, but it's pretty straight forward; central vacuum, low volt on/ off connections, done!

Does the Nutone vx550 have hoses of 15'-20'

Asked by: Anonymous
The VX550 is a central vacuum unit only. All hoses, tools, and accessories are purchased separately. NuTone has hoses that range from 30'-42' in length. You can review the product information (model number, specifications, etc.) at

Customer Reviews

Deluxe 550-Watt Central Vacuum Power Unit is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 20.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from What good is it if there are no replacement parts it's a good unit, worth every penny UNTIL you find out that the only thing that wears out on the unit, the motor brushes, are no available to purchase and you have to spend a little over 50% of the price of the whole unit to replace the motor instead of 2 brushes that would cost a few dollars. Wish I had know this when i got the unit :(

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great so far Very easy to install. Suction is outstanding. Only been using it for 2 weeks but no issues and does a great job.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features. We are extremely happy with this product. This has been the best home improvement that we made to our house. We especially like the sweep inlet, which we installed in the kitchen. We highly recommend this system. Just a note: be aware that you will need a 20 amp circuit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This system is worth every penny. I installed this unit myself in my house. It was not that hard for a "do it yourselfer". I can do basic wiring and plumbing so this was fairly easy to do. Just takes some planning before you start. Unit is VERY powerful and will suck up just about anything that will fit into pipe. I even sucked a key off my laptop keyboard by mistake.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Dependable / Easy to install unit The unit was easy to install and have been very dependable. My only recommendation for improvement is a way to clear the built in filter. I have to shake it manually and I get dust all over my hand. ie. could there be a lever up in the air chamber that allows you to release the filter from above?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Product was easy to install. Didn't realize how weak the old unit it replaced was until we used the new one. Unit has great look. Easily adapted to the existing system. Easy to install, one bracket, entrance and exit tubes, two wires to connect and plug in wall socket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from VX550 The accessories. Not happy with quality kink proof vacuum hose kinks and collapse if you set on it stopping vacuum suctions, Plastic attachment one pcs. broke floor hardwood sweeper not adjustable poor suction. I like the canister the suction is good. I think a upgrader accessory kit would make it a great system. I would not buy another unit for that reason only. Bruce
