What is an Upright Vacuum Cleaner? An upright vacuum is a type of vacuum cleaner that is designed to have the motor and suction head in the same unit. It stands in an upright position and allows the user to push it in front of them as it cleans.

What is the Difference Between an Upright Vacuum and a Canister Vacuum? Upright vacuum cleaners differ from canister vacuum cleaners because in a canister vacuum the cleaning nozzle is placed at the end of a wand and linked to the vacuum unit through a hose. This unit, or canister, contains the vacuum’s engine, filter and dust bags. It also typically has wheels and needs to be dragged by the user versus being pushed like the upright vacuum.

The Benefits of Upright Vacuum Cleaners:

• Affordable. Who doesn’t like saving money? We sure do! On average, upright vacuum cleaners tend to be more affordable than canister vacuum cleaners.

• Efficient. Because upright vacuum cleaners use motorized brushes, they are efficient when cleaning thick carpets and rugs. Efficiency is key when it comes to cleaning…don’t leave any crumbs (or pet hair) behind!

• Transitions Easily. In most upright vacuums, the transition between hard floor and carpet can simply be controlled with your foot or the switch of a button.

• Less Cumbersome. Because upright vacuum cleaners have one piece, they are definitely less bulky than canister vacuums. This also means you will not have to bend your back as often (bye-bye back pain)!

• Easy Storage. Typically, there are no accessories to dismount and put away, so the storage is easy with upright vacuums. They can also be operated without preparations and have a wider cleaning path.
