My Dyson vacuum is about 7 years old and has, we think, got a dying battery. A quick search shows at first glance that a new battery is around £80/100.
Now to decide whether to get a new battery bearing in mind its age, (could the motor go next) or to buy a new vacuum. There is one carpeted bedroom and a set of carpeted stairs. Everything else is laminate or tiles. No pets, just dh and myself.
I like my original Dyson cordless but think as I am getting older I could get something a little lighter. Dyson does have one that is quite light but it's around £370.
I have seen some cheaper stick models including a Shark at about £180. There are also cordless vacuum cleaners (not stick) but Im thinking they'd be a bit bulky on the stairs.
Has anyone bought a cheaper stick models and been well satisfied. Our floors are never in need of heavy duty attention but I do want something efficient.
Has anyone bought a new battery or gone for a new stick vacuum.
Recommendations would be appreciated.
What did you do and were you happy in your choice.
Another new Dyson, a new battery, or a cheaper model.
