How To Choose The Best Upright Vacuum Cleaner

Choosing the best upright vacuum cleaner depends on your purposes. Answer the following questions:
  • Will you use the upright vacuum cleaner for removing pet hair?
  • Are you looking for HEPA filtration, which can keep your house from allergen?
  • Do you need to clean your carpets with the upright vacuum cleaner?
After knowing what you really need, you should also consider maintenance for long time use and usability for easy movement as well. All of these features help you determine what the best vacuum cleaners in the world are.

#1. Floor and carpet cleaning

Many upright vacuum cleaners are designed for cleaning both hardwood floors and carpet, so you have to use the right function. When cleaning your solid surface, remember to turn off the carpet cleaning function. If not, it might cause a scratch on your floor.

To completely remove all dust and dirt deep in your carpet, you need an upright vacuum cleaner, which can produce a lot of power. On the current market, some vacuums are integrated with a dirt sensor, alerting you to deal with the last speck of grime.

#2. Noise level

Typically, most powerful upright vacuum cleaners produce more or less noise, and they are never in the "silent" or "ultra-quiet" range. A full-sized machine has a noise output of 70-80 dB.

#3. Pet hair cleaning

Do you have lovely pets at home?

If yes, you might know that they shed hair around your house. Without solving this problem, it can cause allergy. A grooming tool can help you get rid of a large amount of pet hair. But, the best upright vacuum cleaner can clean pet hair on your furniture, sofa, and upholstery.

#4. Manageability

Apart from the effect of cleaning stairs and ceiling, a good upright model should be easy to use, control, and store for easy manageability.

Some models allow you to adjust the height of the brush roll for cleaning each specific area. It's better to choose a lightweight vacuum to move around your house quickly.

#5. Filter

The majority of the best vacuum cleaners can clean surfaces to leave fresh air. However, not all of them have proper air filtration.

Why should you buy a vacuum cleaner with a filter?

Micron level filters are useful in trapping the smallest particles of dirt, dust, even allergens. But, if you want a model that can both decrease emissions and keep you from allergies and asthma, you had better invest in a HEPA filter.

#6. Bag or bagless

Do you want to purchase a vacuum cleaner with a bag or bagless feature?

The bagged vacuum cleaner can keep you from dirt and dust better because there is no need to contact things inside directly. But this choice is no environmentally friendly and cheap. After the bag is filled with dirt and dust, you have to throw the bag away and replace a new one.

A bagless model comes with a dirt container. After it is full, you will empty this item. This solution helps you save a lot of money, but there is a high risk of dust in the air.

What is The Best Vacuum Cleaner?

It should have both floor and carpet cleaning options. If possible, you should choose an easy to use, move, control, and store machine. In particular, the help of a filter can result in a better performance.

Hi Lakesha! Welcome to the forum

I am not a full time PCB designer, but I can share my experience as an electronic engineer (EE)
First, you need to ask yourself WHY? What gravitates you and interest you about PCB design?
Maybe you are artistic, or a person who enjoys the design process and connecting with the end results. It could be a life style choice, and ability to do remote work perhaps. In any case, you need to map out your motivation as it relates to you personally.

Second, not sure if you already set out on the path of becoming EE. However, PCB design is more art than engineering. This is why you do not need to be an engineer to be a professional PCB designer. Though, it does help tremendously and makes you a better PCB designer if you understand electronics. If you strictly want to become a professional PCB designer and nothing else, certification will definitely help set you on that path. Look for accredited program provider, though I recommend you hold off until you got your feet wet with PCB design.

Third, do you plan to work for big company or do you want to build a freelancing career? The choice of CAD tool here is important, Altium and OrCad/Allegro are dominant players in the industry. ... statistics. Personally, I despise Altium, but it is probably most secure path to landing a PCB Design job at a big co. The learning curve is very steep and to me is not something I want to invest in as I do more than just PCB design. As a freelancer PCB designer, clients pay you for end results and *most* do not care what CAD package tool you use.

In my experience, the best way is to learn by doing - start with small projects and build simple boards. if you can't think of project ideas, there are many open hardware projects, and it's a good way to get involved and build your portfolio. Learn and understand the process. As you gain knowledge and confidence, build more complex boards and challenge yourself. Here, focus on the design process not the tool. So pick a tool and learn layout first, later, you can migrate to a different tool that helps you get closer to your end goal.
This is where DipTrace triumph I believe. It's the easiest to learn and is a very capable CAD package. No tool is perfect so choose what works for you.

good luck~
