In an upright vacuum, the motor, filter, any dust bags, and the power head are all part of one unit, which users push in front of themselves during cleaning. This all-in-one design some uprights can feel heavier then canister style units, but with their weight tends to come additional power that deep cleans carpets. As always the most important thing to consider when deciding on a right vacuum for you is that you match it to your space and cleaning needs in order to ensure the best performance as well as gevity of the unit.
"Fantastic service. I tried to install a central vacuum myself, but realized that I needed help. The owner came to my house the day after I contacted them. Installed everything quickly. Spent time with me after showing me how to use the different parts, and how to avoid breaking them. I would definitely recommend them to anyone." - Leslie
