The second biggest vacuum cleaner retailer is Amazon UK with 475 offers. That means eBay is slightly bigger than Amazon UK when it comes to vacuum cleaners. Currys is the third biggest retailer with 163 current offers.

When Are Most New Vacuums Released?

The most common period for new vacuums to be released in is between July and September. That means that most of the latest vacuum cleaner technology was released in within the last 3 months, and now is good time to buy. In 2016 most new vacuum cleaners were released in July, with 96 new vacuum cleaners released that month. 128 new vacuums were released in August 2015 making it the biggest month that year for new vacuum releases. The biggest month in 2014 for new vacuum cleaner releases was September, with 273 new vacuums released that month.

How Fast Do Vacuum Prices Drop After Release?

In the first 6 months after release, vacuums drop in price by 3% on average. That means a saving of £6 on a typical £177 new vacuum cleaner if you wait 6 months before buying.

Maximum Input Powers

This measures the power level of the vacuum cleaner, rated in watts.

Comparing all vacuums, the maximum input powers range from 100W to 8,580W. The maximum input powers of most vacuums range from 590W to 830W. The HooverSP81BL11001, which currently retails for £89.97, has the highest maximum input power and is an 8,580W vacuum cleaner. The HooverSP81BL11001, which currently retails for £319.99, has the lowest maximum input power and is a 100W vacuum.

The input power directly links to the suction power of the vacuum - a higher power means more suction, which means more efficient cleaning.

Types

Amongst new vacuum cleaners, the most common type is cylinder. We found 976 vacuum cleaners that are cylinder vacuum cleaners. Upright is the second most frequently found type amongst new vacuum cleaners. We found 445 vacuum cleaners that are upright vacuum cleaners.

Cleaning Types

Way in which device cleans something or itself.

We found 1,750 vacuums that are dry vacuums, which makes this the most frequently found cleaning type amongst new vacuums. We found 366 vacuums that are wet vacuums, making this the second most common cleaning type amongst new vacuums.

Weights

The weight of the vacuum cleaner, including all attachments that fit onto the device.

The weights of vacuum cleaners range from 300g to 30kg. The weights of the majority of vacuum cleaners range from 4.2kg to 5.5kg. The ViperLSU395, which is on sale for £418.80, has the heaviest weight and is a 29.3kg heavy vacuum cleaner. The ViperLSU395, which is priced at £55.00, has the lightest weight and is a 300g heavy vacuum.

A lighter weight makes the vacuum easier to push, and makes carrying it up and down stairs less of a chore.

Energy Efficiency of Vacuum Cleaners

The Energy Efficiency Class of a vacuum cleaner shows how well it uses energy, and how much is unnecessarily wasted. Products are ranked from G to A++ in terms of how little energy they use compared to the norm.

Amongst new vacuum cleaners, the most popular energy efficiency rating is A. We found 670 vacuum cleaners that have an energy efficiency rating of A. The second most frequently found energy efficiency rating amongst new vacuum cleaners is B. We found 104 vacuum cleaners that have an energy efficiency rating of B.

A vacuum with a better energy efficiency rating will consume less energy whenever they are used, saving you money and making them better for the environment.
