Vacuum Cleaners Features and Specifications
The first vacuum cleaner was patented in 1868. The original idea incorporated a pneumatic manual suction mechanism. Currently, vacuum cleaners are the most widely owned appliances. They also evolved into brand new technologies.
Currently bagless cyclonic vacuum cleaners dominate the market. However, there is also very good 10 year water filter technology on the vacuum market.
The water filter vacuums are probably the best. These machines trap dirt in the container filled with water.
However, water filter technology (mainly supplied by Rainbow Vacuum Cleaners) is very expensive. Cyclonic, bagless (with HEPA filter) vacuum cleaner is probably good enough for the average household.
Basic cyclonic vacuums should generally have:
- Power of 1800W (1200W will do for easier carpets)
- Telescopic wand
- Variable suction/power (either knob or air depleting hole)
- Retractable Cord
- Vacuum accessories: upholstery, crevice nozzle, turbo head with swivel, floor head)
- On board storage for vacuum accessories
Vacuum cleaners extras include:
- HEPA filter
- Power rather than turbo head
HEPA filter is an international standard for air filtration. Vacuums with HEPA filter cost more than ordinary vacuums.
However, please be aware that for asthma sufferers none of the air filtration vacuums are the answer. Only water filter vacuums can help here.
Power head is also a relatively new gadget. It uses an onboard motor to increase suction.
Please note that cyclonic bagless vacuums do not necessarily perform better with the increased price. $230 will definitely buy you a very good bagless cyclonic vacuum.
