How To Buy Vacuum Cleaners Online Or Offline

Aug 17, 2007
When it comes to buying vacuum cleaners, it pays to do your research online and offline too. There are many types of vacuum cleaners in the marketplace today to choose from often making the decision difficult; knowing what to look for will shorten the process and assure you that you're choosing the right one. You can buy an inexpensive, cheap or expensive model depending on your budget.

For carpets, make sure the vacuum has enough suction power, especially for carpet or rugs with deep pile. Bagless models use a series of filters to trap dirt in a dust cup while allowing air to pass through the machine; however, they can be very messy to empty. A good vacuum cleaner should cost nothing to maintain.

Vacuums can lose suction when the filters or bags get clogged and blow dirt back into the air. Check out features vs. the weight to choose the right model for you. Some vacuums may actually put dirt back into your home.

Always check and see how long the warranty is good for; the longer the better of course. You can save a lot of money buying vacuum cleaners online if you do some thorough research first. It'll cost more buying a unit with a bag because you'll be buying bags ongoing.

The highest priced upright models may carry every available feature; they may be true HEPA vacuums. Make sure the machine feels comfortable. Try assembling and taking apart the attachments before you buy.

Read the warranty fine print so you know exactly what's covered in the event it's defective or you need it repaired. Consider where the vacuum cleaner will be stored to make sure it will fit the space. Canister vacuum cleaners can come with a bag or be bagless.

Canister vacuums range in price anywhere from $150 to $1500. Lower end uprights may have headlamps and/or bumper protection for your furniture. Check the amps of the vacuum cleaner.

Check the height of fully assembled attachments to make sure that you won't be bending over or holding your arm up to use them. Find out the air watts to get a good indication of its suction power. Some canister vacuum cleaners do offer HEPA filtration.

Check out the vacuums with the patented internal filtration system. Get a unit with a good filtration system and protect your lungs and overall health. To receive the true or absolute HEPA designation, filters must perform to a certain standard. If possible test air-tightness; you can do this by vacuuming for a little bit with a floor model and see how much dust has collected on the outside of the vacuum.

You want to get rid of as much dirt, dust, mold spores, fungus, bacteria, dust mites and allergens as possible. True or absolute HEPA filters are usually more expensive than other HEPA filters. Considering your health when it comes to vacuum cleaners is important; you don't want to create or worsen respiratory, mobility, back problems or anything else needlessly.

A vacuum should last for many years with proper care. A quality vacuum cleaner can be an excellent investment if you do your homework. Make sure you add on replacement bags to your initial investment if they're required.
