“Clinically proven Beam Central Vacuum System removes dirt and allergens from living areas…reducing allergy symptoms as much as 61%!” (source)
Electrolux Central Vacuum Systems, began operation as Beam Manufacturing Company, producing washing machines, dishwashers, and Beam “Doodlebug” scooters. In 1957, Beam Manufacturing Company was sold and the company began to focus on central vacuum systems, where over the years became a market leader in the central vacuum industry.
Beam has recently launched their new series of central vacuums called the QS series. One of the touted new features is the extreme quiet with which the system runs. The QS series has units designed to service homes from up to 3500 sq. ft. to 15,000 sq. ft.
This new system is a bagless system with the On-guard® anti-microbial canister. The height of the canister runs from 35 inches for the smallest unit to 45 inches for the unit that services 15,000 sq. ft. This is a little smaller than some brands for the lower units and about 6 inches higher than the Nu-tone unit on the higher end of performance. (source)
Some the key accessories for the Beam Central Vacuum System are:
- The KickSweep – just sweep debris into the inlet mouth, touch the toe switch and dirt is whisked away. Professional installation required.
- Beam Wonderwand® Floor Hugger – it is easy to clean beneath and behind refrigerators and other hard-to-move appliances and furniture. This narrow attachment slips beneath and behind the unit to remove trapped dust, dirt and allergens quickly and easily.
- Car Care Kit – clean the carpet, hard surfaces, and upholstery in your car or truck. Versatile attachments including an upholstery nozzle, round dusting brush, crevice tool, and a compact 8′ hose stretches to 32′ with 360° full-swivel handle.
