New vacuum cleaner regulations September 2014

Below is some detailed information regarding the new regulations that have come in for Vacuum cleaners produced after September 2014. 


Many people have been panic buying and worrying about being able to get a "high powered" vacuum cleaner. The new regulations only mean that cleaners produced after September 2014 have a maximum wattage of 1600w. We can still supply higher wattage machines for years to come, they just can not be produced by manufacturers any more.


Many manufacturers already produced lower wattage machines well before the new regulations came in and have been doing for many years now. The truth is the wattage of your motor will not give you a clear indication as to how a vacuum cleaner will perform, all this tells you is how much energy you will be using. The design, filtration and air flow through out the machine are crucial to how the vacuum cleaner will perform. Manufacturers have already been successfully producing machines with low wattage motors that perform extremely well for years now, and the technology is only going to get better. Below is some more detailed information regarding the regulations in detail. 


Please remember - We can still supply you with a high wattage vacuum cleaner! They are not being produced any more but we still have stock of high wattage machines and there are still plenty to be had from manufacturers that were produced before September 2014!
