Three Vacuums. Three Price Points.

We all have different vacuuming needs. Maybe you’re looking for a stick vac that can do double duty while squeezing into a dorm room. Or are you someone leaning toward a pumped-up model with some serious oomph? I know. You’re finally ready for your first apartment vacuum, yes? Not to worry, I’ve picked the perfect trio for you to check out. One’s cordless, one is small but with a powerhouse motor, and all three are bagless. Oh, and one I can’t live without. They’re listed by order of price — least expensive first.

Eureka AirSpeed Zuum All Floors (Model AS5210A)

Eureka AirSpeed Zuum All Floors would make an ideal first vacuum.

Eureka AirSpeed Zuum All Floors would make an ideal first vacuum.

Designed with a tool cleaning feature, and an 8-foot easy-to-access stretch hose and telescopic wand, this upright vacuum also includes the PET Power Paw Turbo Nozzle to remove pet hair from furniture. Eureka Zuum all-surface cleaning vacuum comes with an on/off switch that controls the brushroll. Turn it off on hard flooring to keep debris from scattering about, and switch it on for rugs and carpets. An odor absorbing, high-efficiency allergen filter keeps unwanted odors at bay while vacuuming. AirSpeed Zuum weighs in at just under 15 pounds and is equipped with a 30-foot cord which, in a perfect world, would be the minimum for all corded vacuums.

Sold exclusively at Target stores and Target.com.

Priced at $129.99.

Electrolux Ergorapido Brushroll Clean Cordless Vacuum (Model EL1061A)

The cordless Ergorapido is perfect for dorm rooms or other small spaces.

The cordless Ergorapido is perfect for dorm rooms or other small spaces.

I know. That moniker makes it sound more like a matador than a stick vac, but don’t underestimate this little guy. Ergorapido comes with a wall-mount charger, power cord and two indispensable accessories that are oh-so-cleverly stashed in the charging stand. Ergorapido has 12 volts of power, weighs in at just over 5 pounds, with a dust cup that holds about 1.4 quart of debris. But where this cordless stick vac really shines is in its versatility. It comes with an easy-to-remove hand vacuum that slurps up small jobs; and snap on the small triangular brush to lap up dust and pet hair on furniture. You can see my detailed review here. Oh, and this is the vacuum I can’t live without. With two German shepherds, I need to spot vac several times a day.

Available at  most Best Buy (where it’s currently on sale for $129.99), Bed Bath and Beyond and Lowe’s.

Priced at $149.99.


Dyson DC47 Animal Canister Vacuum

Dyson DC47 is a small but mighty canister vacuum.

Dyson DC47 is a small but mighty canister vacuum.

If you want a canister that doesn’t take up much space, then you might consider taking the DC47 for a spin. A hair under 14 pounds, the diminutive Dyson is designed for those who are following the down-sizing trend. It has a smooth ball that easily glides over various surfaces. And the ball on the DC47 isn’t just for show; it houses the brains of the operations, including polycarbonate air ducts and the 16.4-foot power cord. DC47 Animal includes a combination tool, stair tool and the amazing tangle-free turbine tool that keeps hair from gumming up the works in the brush.

Available from Dyson.com, and most Best Buy and Home Depot.

Cost: $449.99

Second, the British obsession with owning property means we often forget that our house may be our greatest asset, but it’s a home first and foremost. And you can’t sell what you still need. So unless you’re not too worried about having a roof over your head, when exactly are you going to crystallise that “gain”?
