Review: Electrolux Harmony HEPA Canister Vacuum Cleaner

Electrolux is my brand of vacuum cleaner. I was sold on this brand way back in the mid 1970’s when I sold them door to door. The Electrolux Harmony vacuum is moderately priced at $298.00. You can order it online and will be shipped to you free of charge. I love this vacuum cleaner because it is light weight and easy to handle.

Most people have the misconception that vacuum cleaners operate on suction that is actually a misnomer; it is actually airflow that picks up the dirt in your carpet. As the air rushes around the particles of dust and dirt they are whisked away with the airflow. If you do not believe me, take a penny and place it in the palm of your hand. Now place the nozzle of your vacuum firmly over the penny on your palm. Don’t break the seal over your hand. Now either turn on your vacuum yourself or have someone else do it for you. Now after a second or two turn the switch off. Wait for the motor of your vacuum to stop. Now remove the nozzle from your hand. If you did that just like I said, your penny will still be in your hand. Now turn the vacuum on again and bring the nozzle toward the penny in your hand. As the nozzle comes close the air around the penny causes it to start moving in your hand and as you come closer the penny will fly off your hand and be carried away into the collection bag or compartment of your vacuum cleaner. So suction does not pick up dirt, but air flow does.

The Electrolux Harmony has a replaceable HEPA filter, two air bags and a caddy for the extra tools. The tools are included are crevice and floor tools, an upholstery brush, and a turbo nozzle that is driven by air flow. I like the Electrolux Harmony because it is so versatile. I can clean my bare floors and my carpets, and at the same time I can be assured that the air in my home is clean also. This machine also has a telescoping wand that I use to vacuum the dust off my curtains and drapes. The HEPA filter captures 99.97 percent of the dust and allergens in the air. This machine is very good for people that have allergies. When my sinuses start to stop up from allergies, I have turned on the vacuum even when I don’t need to clean. I just leave it on to clean the air. The HEPA filter is washable, and only needs to be replaced once a year. The Electrolux Harmony is amazingly quiet compared to many other vacuum cleaners.

I love the way the Electrolux Harmony is able to move. This machine moves on soft plastic coated wheels, and they don’t make a lot of noise as you move the vacuum cleaner from room to room. For me, being quiet is a must, because I work during the day and I usually run the vacuum at night when the family is already in bed. It must be quiet, because I have never been told that I am disturbing them. I recommend this vacuum cleaner to anyone that needs a light machine. You can buy Electrolux Harmony at the
