The Quietest Vacuum?
Posted by kevvyg on Saturday, November 30, 2013
Mirror, mirror, on the wall, which is the quietest of them all?

In general, vacuums are loud. I mean, really, how can they not be? Most vacuum cleaners are essentially a motor and a bag (or container to hold the stuff you vacuum up). The motor creates suction that draws in air, debris, dirt, then traps the particles while allowing the air to pass back into the home. The problem is that not only does the motor produce noise as it runs, but you also have the suction created by the vacuum - that "giant sucking sound" (anyone remember Ross Perot?).

These two things often combine to make most vacuums so loud that you simply cannot hear the phone ringing, someone knocking on the door, or even someone in the same room trying to talk to you. Ultimately, brand matters little in this regard. From Dyson and Kirby to Eureka and Hoover, and everything in between, most vacuums are loud. But are ALL of them loud enough to rattle your windows? With the help of my family, I've decided to give you a photographic representation of a better way.

Is Your Vacuum Too Loud?
Exhibit A.

Old or New, Cheap or Expensive, Most Vacuums are Noisy
Exhibit B.

Besides Excessive Noise, Your Old Vacuum is Likely Spewing Microparticles Back into the Air You Breathe
Exhibit C.

There is a Solution - Miele.  I Think She's Calling to Thank Me!
Exhibit D.

Maybe It's Not THAT Quiet, But The Difference is Clear
Exhibit E.

Looking for a quieter vacuum, particularly one that offers filtration as good as a HEPA air purifier, suction as powerful as any available, a warranty that surpasses all competitors, and a choice of styles, features, and colors? A Miele is your best bet! And I am fully confident that this completely unscientific photographic representation offers all the proof you need.
