Electrolux has been designing and improving the vacuum cleaner for decades. The thoughtful design and innovative features make Electrolux vacuum cleaners among the best floor care appliances on the market today. Electrolux makes three classes of vacuum cleaners including Electrolux lightweight vacuum cleaners, Electrolux upright vacuum cleaners, and Electrolux canister vacuum cleaners. No matter what kind of flooring surface you have in your home, there is an Electrolux floor care appliance for the job. Electrolux products can be purchased from retailers including Target, Wal Mart, Bed Bath & Beyond, Sears, and many others as well as online from the Electrolux website or online retailers like Amazon. Below are some of the most popular Electrolux vacuum cleaners available to the consumer.
Lightweight Electrolux Vacuum Cleaners
Electrolux lightweight vacuum cleaners are the appropriate product if you want to clean bare floor surfaces or delicate area rugs. They are not appropriate for thick pile carpets. The two types of lightweight vacuums by Electrolux are the Unirapido and the Ergorapido. Both models are cordless machines that run on batteries. The Unirapido pictured above has a 12 Volt NiMH battery that provides twenty minutes of power at normal speed while the Ergorapido model pictured above has an 18 Volt Lithium Ion battery that provides thirty minutes of power at normal speed. Not only does the 18 Volt battery last longer, but the Lithium Ion technology means that it will charge four times faster than the NiMH battery.
Some of the differences between the two Electrolux lightweight vacuum models have to do with the versatility of the machines. For example, the Ergorapido Electrolux lightweight vacuum is a two in one model that can be used as a stick vacuum or a handheld vacuum depending on where you need to use the Electrolux vacuum. In addition, the Ergorapido model comes with two attachments to aid in the cleaning of upholstery and hard to reach corners and stairs. The Unirapido, however, has a much larger dust capacity. The dust collection container on the Unirapido Electrolux lightweight vacuum cleaner is one quart compared to the 0.4 quart dust collection container on the Ergorapido.
Upright Electrolux Vacuum Cleaners
Electrolux also makes two lines of upright vacuum cleaners known as the Nimble line and the Versatility line. The main difference between the two lines of Electrolux upright vacuum cleaners is the fact that the Electrolux Nimble comes with swivel steering making it easier to maneuver around furniture and into hard to reach places. Other than that, the only real difference between the two lines of Electrolux upright vacuums is an aesthetic one.
Both Electrolux vacuum cleaner models have a 12 Amp cyclonic suction system and bagless dust collection. They both have a quick release wand and hose that allows you to stretch up to fourteen feet away from the base when cleaning. Both vacuum cleaners models by Electrolux can be used on floor surfaces of various kinds including hard floors and carpets. Both vacuum cleaners by Electrolux have a HEPA filtration system, but the Nimble models have washable filters while the Versatility models have an additional anti-odor filter which makes them good vacuum cleaners for pet owners.
Canister Electrolux Vacuum Cleaners
Electrolux makes several different varieties of floor care appliances that are referred to as canister vacuum cleaners. The two pictured above are the UltraActive and the UltraSilencer. The UltraSilencer gets its name because of the sound dampening technology used in this Electrolux vacuum model. The machine operates at less than 65 decibels which is the noise level of regular conversation. Another difference between the two featured models is the fact that the UltraActive is a bagless unit while the UltraSilencer uses dust collection bags. The UltraActive is also more powerful with a 12 amp power supply than the UltraSilencer with a 9 amp power supply making it more appropriate for all floor surfaces while the UltraSilencer is only used on hard floor surfaces and low pile carpets.
The UltraActive is slightly more convenient to use because the controls are on the handle rather than on the canister and the hose length is slightly longer. Both Electrolux machines have 21 foot electrical cords but the UltraActive has a wider cleaning path so you can clean more carpet before needing to move the canister. Both models come with many accessories and tools that make them appropriate for use with upholstery and hard to reach places.
