Save Your Money - Buy Vacuum Cleaners Online

Aug 17, 2007
Buying the best vacuum cleaner will take a little bit of research. Researching the power, suction and edge cleaning abilities of a vacuum cleaner to make sure that it'll perform at the level you need, is very important. You can buy an inexpensive, cheap or expensive model depending on your budget.

Metal components in a vacuum cleaner are better than plastic but will make the unit much heavier. Many bagged models include a full bag indicator light to help users remember to change the bag. It may be more difficult to find as many of the bells and whistles you'd like on the lightweight models.

You want to make sure to get a vacuum designed for your mixture of carpeting and hard flooring. 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. You can choose a lightweight or heavyweight machine.

A low-end upright model will usualy have only a suction hose with a crevice tool, stair brush, and extended wand piece. Find out how often belts, filters, and other items will need to be cleaned and/or replaced. If you buy a unit with a bag, you'll need to change bags frequently to cut down on the possibility of dirt, dust and other particle leakage.

If you plan to buy online you can still try out vacuum cleaners at your local vacuum cleaner dealers and stores that carry vacuum cleaners. A self-propelled vacuum cleaner may sound great, but they're actually very heavy to lift. Canister vacuum cleaners that have onboard tool storage make tools handy to reach.

You may want to find a canister vacuum cleaner with wheels that won't scuff or damage your floors. Always check and see how long the warranty is good for; the longer the better of course. The lower priced upright vacuum cleaner may or may not include manual adjustment for the height of the carpet.

In the lower-end of uprights you will find a few models that have an additional feature, like bagless models or models with bags and a full bag indicator light. Some canister vacuum cleaners do offer HEPA filtration. Do you want an upright or cannister?

You can save a lot of money buying vacuum cleaners online if you do some thorough research first. Try assembling and taking apart the attachments before you buy. Canister vacuum cleaners can come with a bag or be bagless.

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. HEPA-like or HEPA type filters may only capture only 85 to 90 percent of particles and that percent can fall even lower for particles of 1 micron and below, unlike the true or absolute HEPA filters. HEPA is a type of filter that can trap a large amount of very small particles that other vacuum cleaners recirculate back into the air of your home. Make sure you get a good feel for the vacuum, its handle and accessories so you know if you can handle it if you have any disabilities or physical problems.

Check out the vacuums with the patented internal filtration system. It's best to get a vacuum with a good filtration system and protect your lungs and overall health. A bagless vacuum that uses filters may leak dust, dust mites, mold spores, fungus, bacteria, smoke particles, chemicals and allergen particles into the air, so small you may not be able to see all of them.

Choosing the best vacuum cleaner for you is easier than ever. A quality vacuum cleaner can be an excellent investment if you do your homework. Make sure to read the vacuum cleaner ratings and review that you find online and offline.
