Product Review 7: Hepa Vacuum Cleaners


WESTFIELD: “The sensational new Felix is the go anywhere, does everything vacuum for peopled who have active lifestyles,” reports Keith Petersen of The Eardly T. Petersen Company in Westfield. “It appeals to a lot of young people, the young-at-heart and especially our customers who appreciate quality and durability. The Felix is “cool”! It appeals to people who want the latest technology in ease of cleaning. There is no other vacuum cleaner like it on the market.”

“In the August 2005 issue of Consumers Digest vacuum cleaners are reviewed and the new Felix vacuum is featured and touted as a Consumer’s Digest Best Buy in the Premium Upright category,” continues Mr. Petersen. “Consumers Digest evaluates many products and only award their Best Buy designation to fewer than 3% of the competing products in a category.”

The following is an excerpt from Consumers Digest: “This German-made upright is versatile and quiet. Thanks to its telescoping ergonomic handle, svelte body, 180-degree swivel joint between the trunk and motorized carpet nozzle, and the nozzle’s low profile, this vac is also lean and agile enough to reach out-of-way spots (especially under furniture). It easily becomes a lightweight (9.9 lbs.) but powerful hand vac. A variable power control adjusts suction. It also has a cogged-style belt that should last the life of the unit and an extra-long, easy-store cord. It has a darn good warranty, too, by industry standards.”

Mr. Petersen adds, “The Felix buyer is someone who wants to clean both carpet and hard floors. This person also wants to be able to easily vacuum stairs, furniture upholstery, and do above-the-floor dusting. The Felix owner wants a flexible, compact, light-weight machine that’s easy to transport, and equally easy to to maneuver around tight quarters. And, like all Sebo vacuums, the Felix features S- Class (Hepa), Hospital-Grade, Anti-Allergy Filtration, as well as a 5- Year Motor/3-Year Non-wear Parts/1-Year Labor Warranty.”
