Aerus Company Info

Swedish Company Electrolux -- with reputation for quality vacuum cleaners -- was acquired in 2003 by Aerus, a privately held LLC owned by the investment firm Engles Urso Follmer. The parent company converted the Electrolux retail stores into Aerus franchises, which promotes its product lines through scheduling in-home demonstrations. Aerus is located in Dallas, Texas, and run by direct marketing specialist Joseph Urso.

Aerus/Electrolux Criticism

Critics claim that Aerus "specializes in marketing, not manufacturing" and claims the company "rebrands outsourced products." The disclaimer on the Aerus website states that they do not honor warranties on any Aerus products th purchased over the Internet, especially through sites like eBay, because they claim "these products are typically stolen, used or rebuilt," and their only authorized products available online are replacement filters and supplies.

Prices for Aerus air purifiers are not listed in their literature, so you must contact a franchise dealer for a demonstration. A number of Electrolux air purification products are offered online by dealers not affiliated with Aerus that have different specifications and list specific prices.

Purification Technology

Air purification products made by Electrolux and promoted by Aerus remove particulates down to 0.3 microns and achieve 99.97% air stream purification and have a 5-year limited warranty. All motors have "silent operation" and rank high in quality performance.
