Canister Vacuums Features Comparison
One major decision to make when selecting a canister vacuum is whether to choose a bagged or bagless design. There are pros and cons to each option. Bags keep dust and allergens tightly confined, while bagless vacuums tend to be easier to empty. A vacuum's filter system is another consideration. High-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filtration is superior, as it captures almost all dust, dander, mites, and other particles. Other common filtration systems in cheap canister vacuums are standard and micro. Features such as weight, cord length, hose length, and attachments can make canister vacuums easier to use. Typically a budget canister vacuum comes with a one-year warranty, so the two-year warranty on the Dirt Devil 082700 Vision stands out.
