What is the best vacuum cleaner for someone with allergies?

A vacuum with an anti-allergy hep cloth bag is far superior to a bagless vacuum for people with allergies, as vacuum bags improve filtration. Because bagless vacuums do not have a bag, the filters clog more quickly, reducing suction and lowering cleaning effectiveness. In addition, when the bagless vacuum container is emptied, dust and other allergens become airborne. Many Bagless Vacuums actually blow dust into the air as you are vacuuming. If their is dust on the outside of the chamber anywhere, it is not cleaning your house.

Do higher amp vacuums clean better?

Not necessarily. Amps are a measurement of the amount of electricity the machine uses, while cleaning ability is determined by the amount of air flow the vacuum produces. A larger, more efficient fan can produce more airflow using fewer amps.

Which is better, a canister or upright vacuum cleaner?

This all depends on what the function of the vacuum is. If you have hallways of carpet: An upright is recommended. If you have bare floors, carpeted stairs, and bedrooms: A canister is recommended. It is best to talk to our store clerk to work out which would work best for you.

Do generic vacuum bags work as well as name-brand bags?

 Many generic bags (Arm & Hammer) are made of a thinner paper than name-brand bags. This can reduce the amount of dust trapped and allow more dust to escape (causing damage to your vacuum cleaner). The use of generic bags may also void some manufacturers’ warranties, so be sure to check your warranty before switching to generic bags. At Energetic Vacuums we sell Envirocare Technologies which carries the highest quality of generic brand bags as well as genuine bags.
