From a user’s perspective, bag-less vacuums can prove to be convenient and economical in the long run. The convenience aspect stems from the fact that a bagless vacuum cleaner directly transfers all the collected debris into a bin, the contents can be emptied by removing the bin.
Also, since there are no dust collection bags involved, it translates to more savings that you’d otherwise have to incur with monthly purchase of disposable vacuum bags. And, you don’t have to worry about small items getting accidentally sucked into the vacuum cleaner, as you can easily retrieve it from the bin.
Things To Consider When Purchasing Bagless Vacuums:
Loss of suction in a vacuum cleaner directly results in lowered cleaning efficiency in the appliance and therefore becomes an important consideration in homes that have both carpeted as well as hardwood (or tiled) floors. In such case, you’ll need a vacuum cleaner that either offers some way of manipulating the suction head directly or has different power configurations that you can switch to on demand.
Typically, the main filter unit in a bag-less vacuum cleaner will extract finer particles of dirt from the suctioned air. Now, if this filter is washable, then you’ll need to remove it and have it cleaned periodically to ensure the suction efficiency of your vacuum cleaner doesn’t suffer. Conversely, non-washable filters need to be changed after they have be fully used up with a new one, thus translating to recurring investments to keep the appliance fully functional.
The default suction head provided in bag-less vacuum models generally proves insufficient when used around corners, crevices, wall edges, upholstery, etc. Therefore, carefully consider the kind of attachments, wands and/extensions being offered with your choice of bagless model as these will definitely influence the overall cost of the home appliance.
