Two Free Boxes of Filter Bags with the Purchase of Every Miele Vacuum CleanerMiele vacuum cleaners have long been known for a few things. They offer exceptional cleaning performance, powerful suction, unmatched filtration, and are built to last 20 years. Unlike other brands, they're also notorious for not discounting their line of luxury HEPA vacuum cleaners, but every now and again, we can sweeten the deal. For a limited time, receive Two Free Boxes of Filter Bags with the purchase of any Miele Premium Vacuum Cleaner.

For nearly 100 years Miele has been designing and building quality vacuum cleaners. Here at AchooAllergy, Miele has been a brand of vacuum cleaner that we highly recommend. Their emphasis on air filtration, keeping your indoor air clean while you vacuum, is critical for people concerned with allergies, asthma or indoor air quality in general. Traditional vacuum cleaners can remove visible dirt but can release millions of particles back into the air. They can literally take allergens and particulate that had previously settled out of the air and onto the floor and disperse them back into the air you breathe. Unfortunately, even HEPA vacuum cleaners can be guilty of this.

Miele Swing Premium Upright Vacuum Cleaner Miele takes air quality a step further. Not only do they independently test their products, but with a HEPA filter, they include the use of a 9-ply filter bag, a pre-motor, and a sealed system (on most vacs) to not only completely clean the air as it passes through the vacuum but ensure that dirty and clean air do not mix or leak. Sealed system Miele vacuums, equipped with their H13 HEPA remove allergens like mold spores, dander, dust mite allergen and dust from the floor and from the air you breathe - the perfect allergy vacuum.

This is all in addition to Miele's superior cleaning ability, high quality and unparalleled durability. The Vortex motor creates powerful, concentrated suction to remove not only the dirt, hair and soil you can see but also capture the microparticles that you can't. A range of included accessories (even more than usual if you are considering their HomeCare line) and attachments make Miele vacuums Miele Marin S8 Canister Vacuum Cleanersome of the most versatile cleaning machines you can own. In addition to all of this is the knowledge that Miele's are built to last twenty years!

So if you were considering purchasing one of the most advanced, durable and effective vacuum cleaners on the market, now is the time to buy. In addition to free express delivery (next day or two day delivery of nearly all Miele vacs) you will also receive TWO FREE BOXES of FILTERBAGS. That's a year's worth of bags, nearly a $40 value, free!

Miele Flamenco II - 12 Years and Still Sucking!Last week, we had a local customer stop by with a Miele that had stopped working. When I saw it, I immediately recognized the body shape and styling as an old S200 model canister, and upon closer inspection, I did indeed find that it was a Miele Flamenco II. As the pictures shows, it is a little rough for wear, but most of it seems to be scuffs. The customer informed us that her Miele would not power up. This can generally mean anything from a bad switch or circuit board to a faulty thermal cut out or issue with the motor. After some initial testing, my coworker declared that it was likely the motor. Sitting nearby, I laughed. Somewhat indignant, he then asked me what I thought it was. Though I couldn't say, I was willing to bet $5 that it was NOT the motor.

We checked the label on the bottom - 2002. Surely it wasn't the motor. It was only 12 years old! To further test this theory (and win my wager), I brought in my multi-meter from home, the next morning. After checking the cord reel, the motor and the plug, it started to become increasingly clear that I was going to win my bet.

With the multi-meter we were able to narrow the source of the problem down to the plug. After replacing the cord and reassembling the Flamenco, it was time for a test. Sure enough, it started right up without issue!

There were a couple things I took away from this. Something we often talk about with a Miele vacuum is the initial cost but viewing a Miele as an investment. Each is built to provide you 20 years of reliable cleaning service, and in the age of "throwaway" everything, including cheap home appliances, this is no small thing. Even after twelve years of use, this Flamenco was going strong, and a simple replacement of the plug had it up and running like new. The other thing I took away from this was.... lunch!

If some of you have visited your local authorized Miele dealer, you may have come across a specific set of Miele vacuum models that you don't see online. You might have seen a unique color or a few additional tools included in with these models. The HomeCare line of vacuums is exclusive to independent dealers, like AchooAllergy.com. This also means you won't find them in any big box store where Miele vacuums are sold. There are a few other features though that make these vacs unique.

First, there is one HomeCare model for each current Miele line. So there is an S2, S6, S8 and S7 upright model. While each respective model may share some similarities with the Miele vacuums you'll find on our website, there are some key differences, like additional accessories, your choice of floor attachments, and something else they all share - you won't find them anywhere, except in an Authorized HomeCare dealer's storefront.

So if you'd like to learn more, click the icon above. It will direct you back to the Miele website, but if you have any questions or want to learn more, give us a call, email or chat. To see our full line of Miele vacuum cleaners. And don't forget, buy any new Miele vacuum and get a free HEPA filter included! That's over a $50 value.

Was one of your New Year's resolutions to have a healthier home or maybe to try to be more organized and clean a little more in 2014? If either of these were things you resolved to do this year or if you simply want a cleaner home or wish to treat yourself to one of the best home cleaning appliances available, Miele wants to lend a hand! Starting yesterday, with the purchase of any new Miele vacuum, you'll get a free HEPA filter.

Miele Canister and Upright Vacuums Ranked Highest in Customer Satisfaction by the J.D. Power and AssociatesWhether you are dealing with allergies, asthma, or COPD or you are simply looking for a luxury home appliance that is not only effective but also durable and stylish, Miele vacuums can help. All feature powerful suction, durable construction, stylish design and are incredibly versatile. From cleaning delicate flooring or high traffic carpet and dusting to cleaning drapes, detailing your car (or computer) or keeping hard-to-reach areas clean, Miele vacuums offer a range of features, attachments and prices to fit your needs and your budget.

Unlike other vacuums that use cheap materials, Miele vacs are manufactured in Germany and extensively tested. Their performance and longevity are two reason why Miele vacuums have won past and current acclaim from Consumers Digest, J.D. Power, Good Housekeeping, and the Housewares Design Awards as well as Architectural Digest, SHAPE, and Real Simple magazines. And independent testing has shown that Miele outperforms any other vacuum when it comes to improving air quality and filtering out microparticles like pet dander, pollen, dust mite allergen, and dust.

So, if you're considering improving your home but also improving your health, you can't go wrong with a Miele. The free HEPA filter promotion means that if you're considering a model without it, you'll now get one. You can turn a Miele S6, like the Onyx from a great vacuum to one that features all of the components of Miele's world class, AirClean filtration system - 9 ply Filterbag, HEPA Filter, Pre-motor Filter, and sealed system. For models like the premium Miele UniQ the free filters means you won't have to worry about purchasing a new filter until 2016.

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.

It's that time of year again - the time when the top consumer product rating agency publishes its yearly edition of home products. In the past we've always mentioned Miele vacuum cleaners, as they have traditionally fared well, and this year is no exception. And due to this agency not wanting to appear as if it "endorses" any particular product, as in years past, I can't actually mention their name. I can't imagine it would be too hard to guess though.

Starting with traditional bagged uprights, the Twist came in at that top. The only area where this vacuum didn't receive a best or near best rank was with regard to handling. This is somewhat understandable given the weight of Miele uprights. One of the few top vacuums that did receive a high mark in this area was the SEBO Felix Premium, which not so coincidentally, is one the lightest vacuums that was tested. In terms of noise level, filtration and performance (particularly on carpet), the Miele Twist was overall the top model.

Joining the Twist on the list was the Miele Cat & Dog, Bolero (now known as the Auto-Eco), and the Jazz. So for the category as a whole, Miele uprights snagged four of the top ten slots and two of the top three.

The Miele Callisto was replaced by the New Kona S8When it comes to bagged canister vacuum cleaners, again Miele was leading the way. In this category, the only average rank the Callisto received was in handling, but that was actually right in line with all of the other models. As something I've pointed out about Miele vacuums, the Callisto was the quietest of all the models tested. Unfortunately, the Callisto, as well as the rest of the Miele S5 vacuums have largely been retired. The upside is the new S8 line of canisters offers a direct replacement model for nearly every retiring S5. In the case of the Miele Callisto, the new Miele Kona canister is a direct replacement - same color, features, and performance, with a slightly redesigned package and a few upgrades.

Here are a few other observations from year's report. One interesting note about the upright category, Dyson was noticeably absent from the bagless uprights. Additionally, the Dyson Animal canister was noted as a particularly poor performer. Though overall, Dyson and Miele were some of the most reliable of the major brands.

chooAllergy.com 2013 Holiday Gift GuideWe've recently released our 2013 Holiday Gift Guide. Different from years past, this year's Guide is shorter, and more concise. It offers a few great products that would work well for the loved one dealing with allergies, asthma or MCS, but what makes it unique this year?

The focus this year was on utility. After careful review we hand selected a few items that not only help to better control your indoor environment, reduce allergens, and lessen reactions, but work just as well for anyone.

This versatile upright features Miele's AirClean System and uses the combination of a sealed system and 12-stage filtration to eliminate the microparticles and harmful allergens that can aggravates allergies and cause asthma attacks. The AutoEco is just one example of a product that is particularly helpful for allergies and asthma, but works well as a gift for anyone who wants a clean home!
