Vacuum Highlights

  • Oxygen’s unique power head system has a separate motor that yields higher cleaning performance. You can see this powerful carpet cleaning through the clear window.

  • The Oxygen combines the superior filtration of a HEPA H12 filter with the innovative, self-closing design of an Electrolux s-bag to capture 99.97% of airborne dust and allergens and to prevent dust from escaping back into your home when you change the bag.

  • The Oxygen is designed with our innovative electronic dust bag indicator that informs you when to change the bag to eliminate dust overflow and keep the dirt away from your family.

  • Oxygen allows you to quickly switch between carpets, hard floors and specialty cleaning such as drapery and furniture by shifting the brush roll speed with controls at your fingertips.

Electrolux Oxygen EL6988 Pros and Cons
MSRP$499 This vacuum is more expensive than average and is priced in the top 28% of canister vacuums.
Premium Features9 This vacuum cleaner has an average number of premium features when compared to other canister vacuums.
Variable Suction ControlNo Power and suction levels cannot be adjusted when vacuuming diffferent surfaces such as delicate rugs, deep soiled carpets, or bare floors.
Finger-Tip Controls Some or all of the vacuum controls are conveniently located at the top of the vacuuming wand so you can operate the vacuum without stopping or bending over.
Noise ReductionNo Special noise reduction features have not been incorporated and noise levels are typical of your standard vacuum cleaner.
HEPA Filter True or absolute HEPA filters are best. They can capture 97.99% of particles down to 0.3 microns including dust, pet dander, and allergens.
Absorb OdorsNo Charcoal filters are not common, but if you're a cat or dog owner, they do help absorb odors out of the carpet.
Auto Cord Rewind Auto-rewind is a convenient feature that allows you to rewind the cord with just the press of a button. It saves time and keeps your vacuum neat and organized.
Wand StorageNo Without onboard wand storage it takes a little additional effort to keep the vacuum organized and securely stored when not using it.
Special FeaturesNo Like most vacuums, this vacuum cleaner does not have any special features that are unique to this brand.
Indicator Lights Includes indicator lights that alert you to required vacuum maintenance such as filter cleaning or bag changing.
Edge Cleaning Designed with side brushes and / or air suction to vacuum flooring all the way to the edges. Prevents dust and dirt from accumulating against the baseboards.
Longer Cord Length Cord length is greater than 25 feet which is adequate for most room sizes in a standard home and reduces the frequency of switching outlets.
Headlight Headlights are optional features, but they are nice for vacuuming in the evening, or trying to see in narrow areas or corners.
Longer Warranty This vacuum is backed by a warranty that is two years or longer. The standard vacuum warranty is only one year and is one of the indicators for design and quality.
Motorized Brush-Roll A motorized brush-roll helps agitate the carpet and loosen dirt so that the vacuum can suction up the debris more effectively.
Turbo BrushNo Does not include a turbo brush attachment that helps vacuum pet hair, dirt, and dust from furniture, stairways, or window coverings.
