Long ago, my grandparents bought me a Hoover vacuum cleaner when I moved into my very first apartment. The vacuum cleaner was awesome, and I had it for many, many years. When I moved into an apartment without any carpets, I no longer needed it, so I gave it away to someone else who could use it.
Well, last year I moved into a house, a 2500 sq. foot house, to be exact. A 2500 sq. foot house = a lot of floor area! While some parts of the house are hardwood, most parts are carpeted. This house is in need of some updates, and the carpeting is one of them. We have those really old, thick carpets that really like to trap the dirt. When we moved in here, I had a lot of other expenses, and needed a vacuum cleaner very quickly. I didn’t have a whole lot of money to spend, so I bought a really cheap one. Well, you get what you pay for, and needless to say, it doesn’t really work very well on the thick carpeting. I had to move the vacuum over an area about 30 times before it would look even halfway decent.
Hoover WindTunnel® Air™ Bagless Upright
I was beyond thrilled to receive a Hoover WindTunnel® Air™ Bagless Upright to review. It could not have come at a better time, really. My floors were in pretty rough shape!
I was very surprised at how lightweight the WindTunnel is. It does say right on the front of it, “The most powerful lightweight multi-cyclonic upright that never loses suction”. At only 12.4 pounds, the vacuum cleaner moves very freely, which I really love. I hate working up a sweat while carting around a heavy vacuum cleaner!
The WindTunnel has quite a lot of cool features to it, including:
- An adjustable handle.
- A 30 foot long cord!!!
- A carry handle for lifting the vacuum cleaner up or down the stairs.
- A 3 in 1 combination tool.
- A clear nozzle with a no scuff bumper so you don’t scuff up your furniture and baseboards.
- A crevice tool.
- An upholstery/dusting brush.
- An 8 foot stair hose!! This can be attached to the QuickFit hose for 12 feet of cleaning your stairs without carrying the vacuum cleaner up them!
- Multi-cyclonic filtration system, rinsable filter and a high-quality filter made with HEPA media. HEPA media traps 99.97% of dirt, dust and pollens down to 0.3microns!
Another thing I love about this vacuum cleaner is that it is very quiet! My other vacuum cleaner is LOUD and that’s one reason why I normally loathe vacuuming. I usually have to make sure no one is in the middle of watching tv or listening to music because the vacuum cleaner echos throughout the house and no one can hear anything. This low noise vacuum cleaner was a pleasant surprise.
The thing I love most about this vacuum cleaner? There is NO need to buy bags because it’s bagless!! It’s also really easy to empty the dirt cup. My other vacuum cleaner’s dirt cup was so hard to empty out, and drove me crazy!
I would highly recommend the Hoover WindTunnel® Air™ Bagless Upright to anyone that’s in the market for a new vacuum cleaner. It does an excellent job on my floors, which saves me a lot of time and effort. I can tell that this vacuum cleaner is really high quality and will last for a very long time. I definitely think it’s worth the investment! Why buy a cheap vacuum cleaner that doesn’t do its job? The Hoover is priced at $179.99, which I think is a very reasonable price for something that I’m hoping to make last at least 10 years. Yes, that’s how long I had my last Hoover for before I gave it away!
