Eureka AirSpeed AS1001A Gold Bagless Upright
The AirSpeed AS1001A is far from Eureka’s most inexpensive model, but it strikes a good balance between price and performance comparable to much more expensive models. The AirSpeed portion of the name refers to Eureka’s inclusion of a more direct air path, allowing for stronger airflow and better suction. An airflow control switch allows for switching suction power between the floor and the hose.
The 32 foot cord and 14 foot extendable hose make it easy to reach room corners or the top of the stairs without moving the vacuum itself. This vacuum includes several cleaning attachments, and the bag-less dust bin is easily emptied. It performs extremely well on carpets and while it’s good on hard floors as well, the brush cannot be turned off to protect the hardwood. However, this affordable vacuum offers excellent performance for the money.
