Keeping your home clean is big business for big business. Over 130 million vacuum cleaner units will be shipped out by 2024. The vacuum cleaner business is worth about $17.5 billion a year annually by conservative estimates. Additionally, vacuum cleaner shipments stand to increase by about 3% by 2024 as well.
The business keeps getting bigger because more and more people are buying homes. They are also filling their homes with furniture, belongings, carpets, and rugs which generate dust and the need for constant cleaning.
Choosing the Best Vacuum Cleaner Under $100
While the vacuum cleaner is a great tool for cleaning quickly and efficiently, nothing is free. The price of residential electricity rose by over 2% in 2018. No, a vacuum cleaner won’t break your energy bill. It’s leaving the lights on, the TV on, and other little extraneous energy uses that increases the bill. The average vacuum cleaner costs anywhere from $150 to $500. Some models can easily surpass $1,000. High power vacuum cleaners eat lots of electricity over time.
Expensive vacuum cleaners may have additional attachments you don’t need, useless fancy features like digital displays, and the illusion of advanced features. A vacuum should be durable and efficient. You need a vacuum cleaner that cleans. Period. Not too cheap and not too expensive. I made a list of the best vacuum cleaners under $100, which is the optimal price you should pay for one.

Clean Up With a Cheaper Vacuum
When you are looking for a good vacuum, make sure that it is durable and cleaning efficient. If you opt to buy an expensive vacuum, chances are you’re paying for a brand name and advanced features that don’t add to its cleaning performance. As I have learned from testing different models, you can often buy a great vacuum for less than $100.
