This item is sold in the United States ONLY! For Canadian visitors, please take a look at the ratings for central vacuums sold in Canada.

The PU3650 QuietClean is a high-end unit from Electrolux. This bagless cleaning system comes with a remarkable 4 gallon dirt capacity and a convenient LCD display, which alerts you when it is time to empty the dirt canister. Alternatively, you could use the small window on the dirt canister to track dirt levels.

Emptying the canister is as simple as unlatching the locks on the unit to dispose the content. You have the option of using a bag or going bagless. Either way, the large capacity canister or bags can collect more dirt than the standard vacuum cleaner. This unit also comes with the added advantage of a self-cleaning filter so you do not have to change or clean any filter.

The self-cleaning HEPA filter eliminates up to 99% of dust and potential allergens from the atmosphere, leaving the air in your house completely clean therefore protecting your family from allergic reactions. Thanks to its muffler kit, the PU3650 noise levels are impressively low at 72.5 decibels, guaranteeing quiet operation whether in or outside the house.

A remarkable feature of this central vacuum cleaner is its LED display. Not only does it display the status of the bag; it also shows suction power and other notifications such as when to empty the canister. For example, in the event the airflow path is blocked, the LED display will indicate the change in suction power.

What’s really impressive about the PU3650 is its ease of use. Once the unit is plugged in, all you need to do is attach the hose to an outlet to automatically turn the cleaner on. In case of a distraction to the suction power, the unit will power down to keep the motor from getting damaged.

At the end of the day, the quality of a central vacuum system is measured by its ability to clean thoroughly and the PU3650 does not disappoint. Whether you are cleaning shag carpeting, Saxony or Berber rugs, this powerful unit will clean deeply and eliminate debris without damaging your carpet.

When you purchase the Electrolux PU3650 QuietClean, you need to pick out a direct connect accessory kit that is specifically suitable for your home. The Electrolux CS3000 Quiet Clean Kit is the most popular; it comes with a power nozzle, extension hose, a wall mount and cover for the hose, one standard and one large crevice tool, an LED brush that allows you to easily clean dark corners and an adapter that enables you to connect standard Electrolux accessories to the PU3650.


If you do not mind shelling out a few extra dollars and are looking for an easy to use central vacuum that consistently delivers on performance, the Electrolux PU3650 Quiet Clean would be an excellent choice. This unit is suitable for homes up to 8,000 feet in size.
