VACUUM CLEANER BUYING GUIDE

When it comes to purchasing a new vacuum cleaner for your home, it’s easy to become confused and overwhelmed with all of the different types of vacs available and the different technical features on offer. The last thing you want is to invest in a new vacuum only to realise it’s not quite right for you and doesn’t perform how you expected. 

So, there are a few things to consider and look out for when it comes to deciding on a vac that’s right for you. After all, you want home cleaning to be made as quick and easy as possible.

 


 

VACUUM CLEANERS BY TYPE

 

 

Cordless Vacuums

Cordless vacuum cleaners are a great allrounder when you want an lightweight, portable and powerful solution when it comes to cleaning your home. Many cordless vacuums have lengthy runtimes of up to 60 minutes, and their minimal design make them easy to store away. On top of this, cordless vacuums often have 2-in-1 functionality; meaning they can be used upright for floors or as a handheld vac for cleaning hard to reach areas.

CORDED VACUUMS

Corded vacuums are also great when it comes to looking for a vac that you can easily get around the home with. They’re lightweight, easy to store and of course carry the benefit of not being restricted on run time like with cordless. Whilst you might not be able to roam as freely around the house with a corded vacuum, most of them are fitted with cables long enough to allow you to move around without restriction.

UPRIGHT VACUUMS

Upright vacuums are easy to use and tend to carry great suction power, making them great for deep cleaning carpets and rugs. They are mostly heavier compared to other vacs, but this weight makes them easier to push around on carpets and get deep into fabrics - making for a better clean! On top of this, upright vacs usually come with a number of tools to help with cleaning crevices, stairs and upholstery.

Key Features

AIR WATTAGE

Air watts are a measure of the effectiveness of vacuum cleaners as it measures the energy of the suction air flow a vacuum cleaner produces. This means that two vacuums of different electrical wattage but the same air wattage will essentially have the same suction power. Below will hopefully give you a decent idea of what is classed as a good air wattage:

  • Upright cleaners: 100 Air Watts
  • Cylinder cleaner: 220 Air Watts
  • Cordless cleaner: 80-100 Air Watts

FILTER

Filters trap dirt and debris and stops inside the vacuum, therefore preventing it from being pushed out into the air. HEPA filters are particularly good filters, as they can filter out particles, bacteria, mould and pollen as small as 0.3 microns (which is equal to 0.0003 millimetres!). This keeps the air in your home clean, which is great for air quality and allergies! 

If you’re allergic to dust, pollen or anything of the sort, you will want to make sure your vac has a good quality filter so look out for vacs with a HEPA (high-efficiency particulate absorbing) filter.
