Crazy as it sounds, shopping for a vacuum can require as many decisions as buying a car.

In both cases, you must set a budget, decide which type is right for you and research the many brands and models to find the best product for you.

Organizations like J.D. Power make your research process easier, though. The market research firm’s 2020 Vacuum Satisfaction Study reveals which vacuum brands consumers like best. In fact, just four brands earned above-average scores.
