Buying a new vacuum cleaner

January 7, 2012

Buying a new vacuum cleaner can be a bit confusing. So many models, and how do I know which one is right for me. The first thing you need to do is establish a budget of how much you’re comfortable spending. If your budget is under a $100 you will be purchasing a disposable made in China vacuum. It will last a couple of years, and then when you have a problem throw it away. There is a lot of truth in you get what you pay for, but rest easy you don’t have to spend over a $1000.00 to get a good vacuum. Next determine if you are more comfortable using an upright or a canister vacuum. They both will do the job, but canister vacuums are usually more expensive. The reason being is you’re getting a vacuum with a motor to drive your brush roll to pick up debris on carpet, and a motor in the tank to generate the suction. Most upright vacuums with rare exceptions have one motor turning the brush roll, and generating suction. From an efficiency standpoint a two motor canister vacuum is best if you have a combination of carpet, and hard surface floors. It will do a good job cleaning the carpet, and a great job on vacuuming hard floors. The majority of these vacuums have a good selection of attachments. The one you want to really look at is the attachment for cleaning hard floors. A good hard floor brush will be natural fiber not nylon. The vacuum should also have an upholstery tool, crevice tool, and a dusting brush. Make sure the motorized head at the end of the wand is easy to remove, and reattach. You’ll be taking this on, and off when you clean with your attachments. A one year warranty is the bare minimum. A two year is better, and if they offer a five year warranty on the unit, or even just the motor it’s probably a good vacuum. Ask if they repair the vacuum themselves, or do you have to take it some where else for repair. Try, and buy your vacuum from a place where you can get service after the sale.

Upright vacuums have been around for a long time, and they’re still the most popular. They also are a less expensive option. If you only have carpet to vacuum these are the least expensive vacuums. A good upright vacuum like this should cost between $200 to $400. If you have hard surface flooring, and you want to use an upright the feature you want to look for is the ability to shut your brush roll off. This will be a switch up on the handle or down on the base of the unit that turns your brush roll off. If you have very plush or Frieze carpet make sure the vacuum also has a height adjustment. Self adjusting upright vacuums won’t work on these types of carpets. Make sure the brush roll has at least two rows of brushes on it, and three is best. Also a metal brush roll allows you to replace worn brush strips where wood or composite means you must replace the whole roller. If you find an upright vacuum with two motors these are the best because they combine the suction of a canister vacuum with the ease of use of an upright. A vacuum with two motors that is made in America with a five year warranty is the Riccar Brilliance, and the Radiance which carries a six year warranty. You also will never ever replace a broken belt again. They guarantee a lifetime warranty on the belt. Lastly I know a bag less  vacuum sounds great but in reality you’ll soon learn they clog easy because of the limited filter area. Filters are more expensive than the price of bags you’ll spend in a year, and are incredibly messy to empty.
