Now several years in, the Miele S7 vacuum cleaners are thriving. Sharing many of the features of the
best selling Miele canister vacuum cleaners, the Miele S7 series not only out performs other uprights on carpet and smooth flooring, but
also features the best filtration available. The S7 line of uprights are all HEPA capable, durable, and provide
powerful suction. Though all share a great number of common features, each Miele S7 upright is unique.
The chart below is a breakdown of many of the common features of each of these vacuums. For further information feel free to browse our
site or contact one of our Miele vacuum experts who would be more than happy to answer any questions you may have.
The Miele S7 Series provides an excellent balance of practical features and cutting edge innovation. When comparing the Miele S7
uprights to traditional uprights, several things stand out. First is the profile of these vacuum cleaners. When lying
flat on the ground they are a mere six inches tall. This slim body design allows this upright to reach places that are usually reserved for
the wand of a canister vacuum. Reaching tighter spaces and vacuuming under heavy furniture are two areas where this new design works wonders.
Traditional uprights have long had a major drawback. Too often they are hard to maneuver, particularly when attempting to turn.
Some have employed a "ball" style design to allow for easier movement, but Miele went in another direction. Just above the base is a pivot
point, and here the vertical section of the vacuum can swivel left and right. By comparison, the S7 upright Swivel Neck design aids in turning and makes it possible to vacuum
more tightly around furniture. Making the Miele uprights less likely to tip, this design allows for a lower center of gravity for the S7 vacuum cleaners.
model also features automatic height adjustment which makes going from low pile to high pile carpet a seamless transition.
When cleaning hard surfaces, Miele has designed the S7's with the ability to turn off the brush roll. In comparison, traditional vacuums have one motor
that controls the entire unit, so when the vacuum is on, the brush roll is spinning. For those who have tried using an upright on smooth flooring
you know that the only thing the brush roll does is toss dirt and debris around the room. To address this Miele has installed two separate
motors. The powerful Vortex motor powers the unit and provides all the suction needed to tackle the toughest of jobs while a smaller, independent
motor runs the brush roll. So, should you need to clean smooth surface simply turn the brush roll off and proceed to vacuum smooth flooring
with straight suction.
Another major difference when comparing the Miele S7 vacuum to a traditional upright is the noise level. Miele uprights, like Miele
canister vacuum cleaners, are extremely quiet. You won't have to worry about missing the phone call or not hearing someone at the door while
using these vacuums. The first time you hear a Miele upright, you'll immediately notice an enormous difference.
Each of the S7 models come standard with HEPA filtration, except the
Miele Twist and
Miele Cat & Dog. The H13 HEPA filter traps 99.95% of
all particles, even those as small as 0.1 microns in size. Additionally, the new H13 filters have a TimeStrip Indicator built into the side of each filter.
This simple but convenient feature lets you know exactly when
the filter needs to be replaced, even if your specific models lacks the Filter Change Indicator option.
The Twist can be upgraded to a full
HEPA filter at any time but comes standard with the AirClean filter. The Cat & Dog vacuum comes standard with an Active AirClean
filter that traps 99.95% of all particles 0.5 microns and smaller. The difference between Active AirClean and AirClean? The former has a thick bed of active charcoal
helps to eliminate pet odors.
All Miele uprights feature
the AirClean dust bag. This 9-ply dust bag is self sealing and traps more allergens than traditional vacuum bags. This, with the sealed system, makes
the Miele upright the cleanest vacuum cleaners available. In addition to cleaner floors and cleaner air in your home, each of these vacuums offers exceptional
cleaning range and reach. With an extra long cord and longer reach hose & wand, the Miele S7 upright vacuum cleaners can cover a full 55
feet before having to change outlets. Other conveniences include the improved design, three onboard accessory brushes/tools,
7 year warranty and durable ABS construction.
There are a few other notable differences when comparing Miele S7 upright vacuums. The Swing and AutoEco come with advanced digital controls in lieu of the rotary dial. Each of these models is
also equipped with the filter change indicator, and the Swing comes with two free additional accessories - the flexible crevice tool and the Miele Micro Set. The newest model, the
FreshAir S7, also has additional cleaning accessories, including the universal swivel brush and the mattress nozzle, and unlike the rest, the FreshAir upright is a limited edition.
