If you\u2019re aiming to free yourself of bags, the best central vacuum to do so with is arguably the Prolux Vacuum. When it comes to floor care\u2014hard flooring or carpet\u2014the dual-stage motor rips dirt and debris from the ground. In addition to a washable HEPA filter, preventing dust and whatnot from floating in your house any longer.\r\n\r\nWhy We Like It - Prolux Vacuum\r\nWith its dual-stage motor, the Prolux Vacuum has enough CFM\u2014150, to be specific\u2014to easily clean an area as large as 12,000-square feet.\r\n\r\nPower\r\nHaving a vacuum with this much power makes upright vacuums seem like toys by comparison. The Prolux central vacuum unit has 150CFM, which does wonders to both carpets and hard flooring, making it an ideal candidate as garage vacuum cleaners. And you always get the full brunt of the dual-stage motor, considering this isn\u2019t battery powered, but rather AC powered.\r\nSpeed & Efficiency\r\nSince the Prolux CV12000 Central Vacuum Power Unit has 150 CFM, it\u2019s incredibly useful for homes that are up to 12000-square feet. The Allegro MU4500 Champion only handles 6000-square feet, and its CFM is rated for 124.1.\r\nCapacity & Maintenance\r\nThe Prolux Commercial CV1200 greatly reduces its overall maintenance by featuring a washable HEPA filter, which is important for collecting dust that continues to float around. However, while the quick-release bin is amazing, and doesn\u2019t require a bag to operate, you\u2019ll have to clean it out once in a while to prevent build up. It can handle 5 gallons of debris, equal capacity to the Hoover Vacuum Cleaner.\r\nDurability\r\nMade of steel with powder coat scratch resistant paint, the Prolux Vacuum is incredibly durable. While it can be used as a bagless backpack vacuum, it should be noted it\u2019s 22 lbs. It\u2019s best to mount it to a nearby wall.\r\nValue\r\nThe Prolux Vacuum is a pretty good deal, going for an easy $460. Considering its performance and design, that\u2019s right where we\u2019d expect it to be. However, it does not come with a hose or accessories of any kind. Thankfully, there\u2019s accessory kits priced around $70, which come with just about every tool you need to clean hard flooring, carpets, and upholstery.\r\nProlux Vacuum Wrap Up\r\nThe Prolux Vacuum offers the ideal place to start for those who have large homes and need a central vacuum unit that can handle both hard flooring and carpets. However, you\u2019ll have to purchase accessories to complete the set; thankfully, they\u2019re relatively cheap and come armed to the teeth with various tools. It\u2019s then you\u2019ll get to experience its 150CFM, HEPA filter, and quick-release bin.
