Slim and lightweight, this combination floor tool is ideal for use on smooth flooring and low pile rugs. Retractable bristles can be extended with a slide to gently loosen and clean tile, hardwood, laminate, linoleum, and other types of smooth flooring. Retract the bristles and reduce suction to clean low pile rugs or small areas of low pile carpet.
A true HEPA filter captures 99.97% of dust and allergens 0.3 microns or larger, and the cleaner is sealed to keep all the dust away from you and your family. Only clean air comes out. Replace every 6-12 months. Washable HEPA Filter also available (blue).
This Classic paper bag traps all of the large particles and visible debris that your vacuum removes. When you remove the S-Bag, it seals to lock away allergens for hygienic disposal. Each S-Bag holds about 2 quarts of debris and soil. Replace every 2-3 months or as needed. This vacuum can also use the Anti-Allergy S-Bag and the Anti-Odor S-Bag for better control of allergens and odors, respectively.
In lieu of three separate mini accessories, the Electrolux Ergospace comes standard with a 3 in 1 Versatool. Attaching to the back of the canister the Versatool can be configured to function as a Dusting Brush, Crevice Tool, or Upholstery Tool.

Electrolux Ergospace Vacuum Cleaner
Without a doubt, keeping smooth floors clean is easier than carpet. Smooth flooring has fewer places for dirt and allergens to hide and is often the doctor-preferred choice for those who are dealing with severe allergies, asthma or COPD. So what does it take to keep smooth floors clean? Suction and filtration are the two keys, and with the Electrolux Ergospace EL4103A, you get just that, wrapped up in a lightweight, compact canister vacuum. With the right tools for homes with mostly smooth floors and some low pile carpeting and rugs, the Ergospace is economical and efficient. Let's take a closer look at the Ergospace vacuum cleaner to see if it's the right vac for your home.
What I like about the Electrolux Ergospace Vacuum
Since vacuuming my household, nearly all carpet, would not be a good indicator of how this would perform at its intended use (mostly hard floors), I decided to test it out here in the office. I started with the air-driven turbo nozzle on the small carpeted area in the office. With powerful suction, it pulled up dirt, debris and even tangled pet hair from the rugs. Though not electrically driven, the turbobrush performed really well on each rug. From there, I took it to the sewing shop. The floors here see a lot of thread and dust that can accumulate as a byproduct of sewing the Allergy Armor bedding products you'll find on the site. In this space, I switched over to the combination smooth floor tool and made our seamstresses very happy! The low profile cleaning head was ideal for use under the tables and machines, and was even able to clean those tough to reach areas that looked as if they had not seen a vacuum in quite some time.
Next, I took the canister down to the showroom, which looked like it could use a good once over as well. Staying with the combo smooth floor tool, it was easy to glide across the the custom, acid stain flooring, and getting under the shelves, showroom bed and around the display model air purifiers was a cinch. For the carpet samples the two rugs we have in this space, I didn't bother to switch floor tools and instead retracted the bristles of the combo tool and used decreased the suction some. For these, this tool performed similar to other combo tools.
In addition to its performance on floors, there are a lot of little features that I like about this vacuum. The handle to carry the canister is in a convenient spot, and makes it easy to carry up and down the stairs when moving from floor to floor. I also think the Ergoshock Flexible Bumper Cord Wrap is a handy feature to have that the other canisters I've tested lack. Not only did I not worry about scuffing any furniture or the canister, but the Bumper Cord Wrap made storing the hose of this vacuum easy for confined spaces. I guess that's why it's called an ErgoSpace!
In addition to the cleaning performance, the EL4103A vacuum does come standard with a HEPA filter. Sealed and tested to remove 99.97% of particles 0.3 microns or larger, this filter, when combined with the S-Bag, are the core of Electrolux filtration. The dust bag removes the visible particles while the HEPA filter traps allergens and fine particles that simply pass through other vacuum cleaners.
What I do not like about the Electrolux Ergospace Vacuum
Before getting into some drawbacks, keep in mind that the Electrolux EL4103A is designed primarily for smooth floors, so don't purchase and wonder why it might not be the best on Berber or thick carpet and rugs. With that in mind, the combo tool could have been designed a bit better. The recommended process of turning off the vacuum, then adjusting the suction and switching the nozzle for carpeting just isn't as convenient as it could be.
My other big complaint is with the 3 in 1 Versatool. It sounds neat and looks interesting, but aside from the dust brush, it simply doesn't perform as well as three individual tools would. The upside is, it's one tool that fits easily into the back of the machine. The downsides are that the crevice tool configuration is too short and upholstery tool nozzle configuration simply isn't very effective.
All in all, my complaints with the combination tools are but a small part of what is generally an affordable, effective vacuum for people with mostly smooth floors. The lightweight, compact nature of this canister vacuum as well as the filtration and excellent cleaning ability will make the Electrolux Ergospace vac a great fit for homes that generally lack carpet. For those dealing with allergies or asthma, it hits the major points that a good smooth floor vacuum should, and when it's all said and done, it takes a much smaller bite out of your wallet than many comparable models.
