This powerful upright vacuum comes with built-in relief for allergy and asthma sufferers. In Eureka's most refined version yet, the true HEPA filtration system on this model is fully sealed when in operation, so it filters both suctioned air and
exhaust air. The fine-particle filter captures 99.97 percent of air particles, all the way down to .3 microns in size. Pollen, dust, dander, and spores stay inside the filter chamber, where they can't trigger allergies in your family. The HEPA filter is easy to change when you need to--about twice yearly with average use--and an indicator light tells you when it's used up.
In addition to the HEPA system, this Eureka features a 12 amp, variable-speed, dual-fan motor, powerful enough to handle a range of floor surfaces and conditions. You can adjust it for seven different levels of carpet, from low pile to thick plush, or use it on bare floors and upholstery. The 15-inch cleaning swath cuts down on the amount of time you spend vacuuming, and the headlight and brush roller make it easy to target dirt. Onboard tools include a hose, two extension wands, a crevice nozzle, and a dusting brush. It also features a dual power switch, easy bag access, a foot-controlled handle release, cord storage hooks, and an ergonomically looped grip. --Emily Bedard
