The Eureka FilterAir vacuum is made specifically to help reduce allergens, while at the same time getting your house cleaner. In this review, I’ll go over the positive and negative aspects of this model, then decide if it’s worth the $160 price tag. Here’s a quick rundown of the features you’ll find on this unit: a brush roll on and off switch, HEPA filtration and Power Paw, dual edge cleaners, flip-bottom dust cup, telescoping wand with crevice and dusting brush tools, 30 ft power cord, a 15 inch cleaning path, and multiple height adjustments. The exterior of this vacuum looks nice enough, but I wouldn’t say it’s anything too eye-catching.
OK, onto the negative aspects of the Eureka FilterAir vacuum. There are a couple features that are missing on this model, that I wish it had: suction control switch, automatic cord rewind, and an easy-empty dust cup. The suction power is decent, but I think it does a much better job on carpet than on bare floors. Another thing that’s a little awkward on this unit is that it doesn’t have fingertip controls. You have to reach down to get to the brush roll on / off switch. Also, the stretch hose is not long enough for my liking. Overall, I think the Eureka FilterAir vacuum cleaner has a lot of things going for it, but there are also some issues that make it a little less attractive. With that in mind, I am giving this model a 3.7 / 5 star rating.
