JD Power has ranked upright vacuum cleaners. Miele came out on top. Dyson, Riccar and Shark followed. Here’s other things to consider:
The typical vacuum cleaner customer spends between $85 and $550. The highest-ranking vacuum brands tend to command premium prices.
Don’t base your purchase decision on price alone. You will end up saving money in the long run by buying a quality machine.
Vacuums are generally very reliable. Less than 5 percent of customers experience a problem.
Get the accessories you actually need. If you have a dog or cat, you might want to select one with a filtration system and pet hair tools.
