When it comes time to purchase a new vacuum there are a lot of choices to make. What brand you want, whether you want a cordless or plug-in model, what your budget is, and what kind of accessories you need but today we are talking about which is better—a bagged or a bagless vacuum? Bagless vacuums can save you money because you don’t have to buy replacement bags. But like bagged vacuums, they have filters that need periodic cleaning or—for HEPA filters— which are available for both bag and bagless replacing, probably more often than with a bagged vacuum. One risk with a bagless vacuum is that you might release some of those allergens back into the air when you empty it.

Purpose and Advantages of Bagged Vacuums

Your vacuum cleaner is an important purchase as it holds the key to your clean house. How do decide between bagged and bagless vacuum cleaners, what are the differences between the two? Is one better??

  • Less Mess – The bag collects dirt, dust, and debris. Bagged vacuum cleaners keep all the bits and pieces trapped inside a bag. When the bag is full you simply replace the full bag with a new clean one.
  • Better for Allergies – Most bagged models have the (High-Efficiency-Particular Air) filters HEPA. The use of a HEPA filter provides allergy relief and enables a cleaner environment.
  • Low Maintenance – The bagged vacuum is low maintenance it can hold up to two pounds of debris so you will not have to empty the bag very often

Purpose and Advantages of Bagless Vacuums

Generally there is no difference in the price, quality of suction, or the accessories available with the bag or bagless vacuum.

  • No Cost for Bags – You will never need to buy new bags. The bagless is simple to clean just empty out the dirt chamber. You will occasionally need to rinse and airdry the filter.
  • Environmentally Friendly – You do not need to keep adding waste to the environment. You will just empty the dirt chamber. Bagless vacuum cleaners have reusable filters and canisters. So with a bagless, you can help save the planet.
  • Dust and Debris Levels Are Visible – This Allows you to start your vacuuming with a visually clean canister unlike having to check the bag for it’s the contents. If you see the canister is full, empty it immediately so you keep dust particles from filling the air.
