Canister Vs. Upright Vacuums
These are two of the most popular general vacuum types out there, and homeowners will often choose between them when selecting a new vacuum for their space.
At AceVacuums, we’re happy to offer a huge range of vacuum cleaners for sale, from Oreck vacuum cleaners to Dyson, Miele, Shark, and numerous other top brands in the industry – and we also provide quality service and repair for all our vacuums. We spent most of part one of this series going over the basic qualities of both these vacuum types, plus some of the areas where they’re actually pretty similar; today’s part will dig into common indicators that one type or the other will generally be best for you based on factors like your space, your noise considerations, budget, and other variables.
When a Canister Vacuum is Optimal
There are several settings where you might lean toward a canister vacuum, and one primary one is if you have lots of stairs in your home or building. Canister vacuums are ideal for stairs, with a powerful suction head that extends away from the vacuum body to hit areas upright units won’t be able to reach. It’s also ideal for hidden areas like under or above furniture and upholstery.
In addition, canister vacuums are light and very easy to move around. This makes them ideal for both larger and smaller spaces – they’re easy to transport over larger distances, but also don’t create a problem when being moved in a smaller area. They’re less noisy than upright vacuums, meaning they’re often the first choice for any area where noise reduction is important. They’re also ideal for hardwood floors during general operation.
When an Upright Vacuum is Optimal
For homes with sizable floor space and plenty of carpet, the upright vacuum is usually the way to go. These are preferable over canister options for quicker basic clean-ups, as they take basically no work to set up and start using. They easily maneuver across large spaces, with push assistance features on most modern models.
This also makes the upright vacuum ideal for those who have any physical limitations, such as back or other joint problems. These often make it tougher for some people to bend over, but the upright vacuum virtually never requires this during basic operation. Particularly for one-story homes without many stairs, and especially if your floors primarily have carpet, the upright vacuum will usually be your first choice.
