Hoover WindTunnel Review Pros and Cons
MSRP$139 This vacuum is priced about average when compared to other upright vacuums.
Premium Features6 This vacuum cleaner has an average number of premium features when compared to other upright 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.
Detachable CanisterNo Detachable canisters are not a common feature, but they are handy for using your attachments on furniture, stairways, or narrow areas.
Noise ReductionNo Special noise reduction features have not been incorporated and noise levels are typical of your standard vacuum cleaner.
Enhanced SteeringNo Uses standard steering which is generally constrained to pushing the vacuum back and forth across the flooring.
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 RewindNo Manually rewinding the cord takes a little more time and effort, but the vacuum can still look neat and organized.
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.
Brushroll On / OffNo A spinning brushroll is great for carpet, but it's nice to have the option of turning it off when vacuuming bare floors.
Automatic Height AdjustmentNo Most vacuums have manual height adjustments that require a dial change as you move from carpets to rugs or bare floors.
Turbo BrushNo Does not include a turbo brush attachment that helps vacuum pet hair, dirt, and dust from furniture, stairways, or window coverings.
Weight (lbs)21.5 This vacuum cleaner weighs about average when compared to other upright vacuums.
