Dyson Vacuum Cleaner Buying Guide

Here at DID, we are committed to helping you find the best electronics possible, which is why we have created this quick and easy buying guide to help you choose the right model for your needs. As a top Irish electrical company, we know how important it is to have reliable and efficient cleaning equipment, so we highly recommend Dyson vacuums. With their advanced cleaning technology, user-friendly features, and durability, Dyson hoovers have earned a reputation as some of the best on the market.

This guide will provide an overview of the different types of Dyson vacuum cleaners, highlighting the features and benefits of some of the models we stock nationwide. We will also discuss important factors to consider when choosing a vacuum cleaner, such as suction power, filtration, and attachments. Whether you're looking for a cordless stick vacuum for quick clean-ups or a powerful upright hoover for deep cleaning, our guide will help you make an informed decision. So, let's dive in and discover the world of Dyson vacuum cleaners.

Cordless vs Cylinder Vacuum Cleaners

Both in-store and online, we often get asked what the differences are between a cordless and a cylinder vacuum. We happen to stock plenty of both, but here are the main differences between the two:

Cordless stick vacuums and cylinder vacuums are two common types of vacuum cleaners that differ in several ways. One of the most significant differences is their design and size. Cordless stick vacuums are lightweight and slim, making them easy to manoeuvre and store, while cylinder vacuums are heavier and bulkier, which can make them harder to move around and store.

Another key difference is the power source. Cordless stick vacuums run on rechargeable batteries, while cylinder vacuums need to be plugged into a power outlet. This means cordless stick vacuums are more portable and convenient but may have shorter battery life and less suction power than cylinder vacuums.

Regarding cleaning performance, cylinder vacuums generally have more powerful motors and larger dustbins, making them more effective for deep cleaning and larger homes. Cordless stick vacuums, on the other hand, are better suited for quick clean-ups and smaller living spaces. Choosing between a cordless stick vacuum and a cylinder vacuum largely depends on individual cleaning needs and preferences.

6 Things to Consider when Buying a new Dyson Vacuum Cleaner

Buying a new vacuum cleaner can be a daunting task, especially with the numerous options available in the market. It's essential to consider a few factors before purchasing to ensure you get the best vacuum cleaner. Here are some things to consider:

Type of Dyson Vacuum Cleaner: The first thing to consider is the type of Dyson vacuum cleaner you want to buy. There are upright, canister, stick, handheld, and robot vacuums. Each type has its advantages and disadvantages, so it's essential to consider which type will work best for you.

Suction Power: Suction power is a crucial factor to consider when buying a Dyson vacuum cleaner. The higher the suction power, the better the cleaning performance. Look for a vacuum with a motor of at least 10 amps or a wattage of 1,000.

Filtration System: The filtration system is essential, especially if you or someone in your home has allergies or respiratory issues. Look for a vacuum cleaner with a HEPA filter, which can trap even the tiniest dust particles.

Bagged or Bagless: Bagged vacuums are great for trapping dirt and allergens and are easy to dispose of but require regular bag replacements. Bagless vacuums, on the other hand, are more convenient and cost-effective in the long run, but require frequent filter cleaning.

Noise Level: The noise level of a Dyson vacuum cleaner can be a significant consideration, especially if you have young children, pets, or neighbours who might get disturbed by loud noises. Look for a Dyson vacuum cleaner with a noise level of 60 decibels or less.

Accessories and Attachments: Consider the types of accessories and attachments that come with your Dyson vacuum cleaner, such as crevice tools, dusting brushes, and pet hair tools. These accessories can help you clean hard-to-reach areas and remove pet hair and dander.

Our Collection of Dyson Vacuum Cleaners

When it comes to the Dyson vacuum cleaner collection, there are a number of key products that we think you should consider:

V15 Cordless Dyson Vacuum Cleaner: It might cost upwards of €500, but the V15 is one of Dysons flagship products and for a good reason. The bagless vacuum has an easy-to-use LCD screen that shows you what is being sucked up and state-of-the-art root cyclone technology that will easily capture dust and debris, so you know that with the v15 you are getting the most modern technology possible. Also, the filtration is outstanding with this model and traps 99.99% of all dust and particles captured, so it will keep your home dust free.

V12 Cordless Dyson Vacuum Cleaner: For €469.99, the V12 is a little cheaper than the V15, but it still maintains many of the great features you might expect from Dyson products. The package includes a powerful 3-in-1 deep cleaning technology, a fluffy cleaner head for doors and skirting boards, and 60 minutes of fade-free power that will instantly make your floors look clean.

Big Ball Multifloor 2 Dyson Vacuum Cleaner: This bagless beauty comes in under €300 and is one of the best vacuums available for its price point. 'What does it include?' We hear you ask, well, it is packed with the ability to pick itself up if it is knocked over, 2-tier radial cyclones for incredible cleaning force, and a rotating wand handle, for seamless 360-degree cleaning. We should probably mention that the Big Ball 2 prides itself on being quieter than many other models too. With acoustic re-engineering built-in, it is 20-25% quieter than other Dyson models. So if you need to do a little midnight hoovering, then go ahead.

Our Pick – The V10 Absolute Dyson Vacuum Cleaner: If asked to pick one specific Dyson vacuum cleaner that we think is best for everyone, regardless of your needs, we would go with the V10 absolute. It is a cordless vacuum with medium capacity that can run at full force for 60 minutes. It has three different power modes: a wall-mounted docking station for easy charging, a shoot bin emptying for easy cleaning, and the ability to transform into a handheld vacuum. So it gives you everything that you need at once. It might come in at €500, but we have a solution for that. Continue reading to find out more.
