The Electrolux EL1030A vacuum has recently been considered as one of the most recommended vacuums on the market. Its unique design and superior features has captured the attention of a plethora of people, but before you purchase it for yourself, be sure to get a better idea on what it has to offer. There are so many products sold right now that are so marketed in a positive way, but end up not offering the features that it advertised, so being a bit skeptical can really pay off in the long run.

What sets this vacuum a part from the countless others would have to be its cordless feature that makes cleaning so much faster and a lot less of a hassle. It was also made with great ionic power to ensure excellent suction without damaging the floors in any way. In addition to that, it Electrolux also added an LED headlight feature that will illuminate the path of where you clean so that you can really see the germs in the area you vacuum.

Furthermore, with its longer battery life and battery indicator, you will be able to see how much power is left and how long you will get to vacuum before you’ll have to recharge. You will also find that it is such a lightweight vacuum made to be very compact and easy to store. But don’t let its slim design fool you, because it really is super sturdy and will not malfunction or damage so easily.

The only con to this vacuum would have to be that it doesn’t stand on its own which can get a bit bothersome, but since it cleans very fast, it won’t be such an issue to deal with. As a whole, it’s a fantastic vacuum that does not disappoint when it comes to cleaning. It truly is a wonderful product that Electrolux really worked hard to perfect.

How to Choose a Vacuum

Choices; they aren't always easy. Informed choices are. In the case of buying a vacuum there can be jargon to hop skip and jump over. As there are many vacuums to choose from but also many features. That's where this quick guide comes into play. Learn some of the common factors of vacuums so you can make an informed choice.


Power (in watts) is kind of a big deal when it comes to vacuums. If you don't have the right power for the job then it's not worth doing. Vacuums come with many power ranges. Some vacuums that don't have much power are still great while others aren't. Look out for the strength of the power behind that vacuum if you want to be sure it'll suck all that dirt up.

Upright or Cylinder

From a personal perspective upright is the better choice generally. The issue is upright vacuums are usually awkward when it comes to hard-to-reach areas. They do come with attachments usually, but the reach just isn't there as it is with cylinder vacuums  In essence  a cylinder vacuums is generally more versatile when it comes to nooks and crannies. Choose wisely, it could be a big regret.

Bag or Bagless?

Do you want to empty your vacuum regularly and not replace the bag? It's a huge money saver to not have a bagged vacuum  The better option usually being bagless. It's down to personal preference here, and probably again, maneuverability when it comes to the emptying process.

Filters (Allergies?)

A vacuum with a suitable filter can go a long way in any case. Though if you have an allergy, a filter will go an even longer way. There's a range of common filters to choose from, that each have their own advantages, either value for money or more allergy suitable:

Standard Filtration

Nothing out of the ordinary here, just a standard filter that will need replacing every now and then.

HEPA (High Efficiency Particulate Air)

This is actually a bit of a mouthful to say, never mind understand. All you really need to know about HEPA filters is that they are becoming industry standard, and claim to capture 99.7% of all particles taken in by the vacuum. Meaning that the air outflow is cleaner and especially cleaner for those with allergies.

Lifetime Filters

They say nothing lasts a lifetime, but have you ever owned one of those old Nokia phones? Lifetime filters come in both standard and HEPA, and can save on having to buy replacements which is great for saving money.

Size and Weight

Does size matter? Yes it does. When shopping be careful to check the dimensions of a product. Is it suitable for your storage? Suitable to carry? Will it be a big struggle or the perfect size for your needs? Speaking of size, there are vacuums that come as handhelds for small tasks; usually great for cleaning up after pets or that mess you leave after your artistic creations.

Wet, Dry & Steam

Depending on the surface; you may look into a wet, dry or steam powered vacuum. Check suitability of the surface for the vacuum you purchase  you may find that dry is better than steam or wet is better than both.
