Less Watts = lower suction power?
The power consumption of modern vacuum cleaner decreases so, which is not only good for the environment, but also saves money. But what about the performance? Can a device with 1,600 watts as thoroughly suck as a 2,400 Watt? And what is to remain with the models even below the 1,000 watt limit? Is a 900 watt vacuum cleaner really fully appropriate if, for example, pet hair from carpets to be vacuumed? The answer is no simple “Well sure!”, But still a “Yes, but it depends …”. The engine power is in a vacuum cleaner is actually not the most important indicator, although it has to a certain extent affect the suction power, but there are also other variables.
Thus, a motor can pick from the recorded performance, depending on the technology used, more or less precisely.The generated air flow is then potential suction to it must, however, only possible losses reach the nozzle and on the way threaten natural losses. Depending on the filter system, intake manifold and nozzle design go, more or less percentage points lost. And in the areas of the various manufacturers have actually greatly improved their equipment in recent years. The way it is quite possible that a modern 900 Watt suction at the nozzle can develop the same suction power as an older device that treats itself 2,000 watts.
Conclusion – less is often more
If you stumble in the search for a new vacuum cleaner over particularly “strong” models with 2,000 watts of power and more, that does not necessarily speak for the devices. On the contrary, showing rather that this is an older model. In the area of 800-1600 watts you are in terms of performance on the other hand mostly accurate. Here convinced the low power consumption, low volume and usually also high efficiency. If you still hesitate, check out our Vacuum Test which thrifty devices could still convince with high absorbency.
