Are Cheap Vacuum Cleaners Worth It?



We occasionally find ourselves wondering if the things we buy at cheaper rates fall in the same category as the expensive ones; or, will we end up suffering later and suffer repair costs and other complexities? And what is the guarantee that we won’t be facing the same issues with the costly things? There are many questions that run through our minds but similarly, the answers are not definite either.

If you happen to be shopping for a vacuum cleaner, then prepare yourself for the bafflement and indecisiveness that will soon follow. Nobody likes to ignore an offer of buying something at affordable rates. However, with the matter at hand, will it be really worth buying a vacuum cleaner at a cheaper cost?

1.     Manufacturers:

One of the most defining factors is the manufacturers. Most renowned manufacturers happen to keep their quality intact, even if they are selling a product with a cheaper price tag. However, the buyer will have to put in a sacrifice for the features in some sort of way.

2.     HEPA filter:

It depends entirely on the requirements of the buyer; if all they want is something to clean off their house and help them remove dust and maintain floor cleanliness, then they can go for a cheap one. However, if their satisfaction lies in the health and safety of their family members, then they’ll need to buy a vacuum cleaner with HEPA filters attached to it, which will naturally make it cost more. However, look at the bright side; as a bonus, you will be getting an allergy free environment at the cost of a few extra bucks.

3.     Performance:

One thing is given; both the cheap one and the costly one will clean off dirt. However, the difference lies with the ease or difficulty with which it will do its job. Costly vacuum cleaners with high-end mechanisms will most probably clean the floor in one swipe, whereas by using a cheap one, you will have to vacuum the same spot several times until they get a clean floor.

4.     Availability:

The best thing about vacuum cleaners is that they’ll allow you to have a clean house, even with a money crisis going on. Go vacuum shopping with less than $100 in your pocket and you’ll return home with a vacuum cleaner.

5.     Warranty:

Never compromise when it comes to the longevity of the warranty period. They might be cheap, but they still cost you money and it would be ridiculous if you had to buy the same thing twice in a year. Fortunately, there are cheap vacuum cleaners available that offer good warranty despite their inexpensive cost.

6.     Extra costs:

Cheap or expensive; it’s the maintenance charges which should worry you more. Most homeowners make the mistake of buying a bagged vacuum cleaner, even when they’re looking for something cheap. They might have bought the vacuum cleaner at a cheaper rate, but they forgot to consider the cost of bags that they will need to buy at regular intervals.

The truth is that there might be some setbacks of buying a product at a cheaper cost. The wheels might be a little difficult to maneuver, it will take more time to remove dirt, repair cost may change occasionally and the product might not be so reliable; but then again, if you are lucky, your cheap vacuum cleaner could last years and years without giving you any
