22 Reasons To Buy A Window Vac

Window vacs have been around for a while now, and what started out as the latest “must have” gimmick is fast becoming a very handy piece of kit. The popularity of the window vac is apparent when you look at just how many makes and models are now available. This is great news for us, because more competition means better offers and features for us, as the manufacturers compete for our custom.

Why Buy A Window Vacuum?

Let’s have a look at the reasons to buy a window vac in no particular order:

  1. Low Purchase Price
    With so many manufacturers making window vacs, and with the constantly improving technology, window vacs are extremely reasonable to purchase. With many models  starting at around £25 and carrying a 2-year guarantee, and many offering 0% finance, there’s never  been a better time to invest in a window vac.                                             
  2. Cordless
    You can still buy corded models, but the freedom and extra maneuverability gained with a cordless window vac is such a bonus, it’s almost worth the loss of power time.
  3. Longer Battery Time
    The first rechargeable, cordless window vacs had atrocious records when it came to charge time and battery life expectancy. Modern models, however, can last to up to an hour between charges, which is more than enough to properly clean the windows in most houses.
  4. Large Water Tanks
    This was another problem in the earlier models, the dirty water storage tank was too small to be practicable. Although modern models don’t have enormous water tanks, they have been greatly improved.

  7. Long Guarantee
    Most window vacs come with a 2-year manufacturers guarantee, many with 3 years. As the company issuing the guarantee is a reputable, responsible well-known company,you can rest assured that for at least the first 2 (or3) years you will have a trouble-free experience.

    Most cordless window vacuums weigh less than ½ a kilogram, making them incredibly easy to use even on high windows where you have to hold the machine above shoulder height.
  9. Fast Cleaning
    Compared to washing and drying windows by hand, you can save up to 75% of time. This means if it took on average an hour to clean your windows and dry them by hand. Using a window vac will get the same job done in 15 minutes. That gives you ¾ of an hour freetime.  Assuming you wash your windows once a month, that’s an annual saving of 9 hours…What will you do with your freetime?
  10. Flexible Neck
    Having a flexible neck on the window vac gives you even greater maneuverability, and easier access to those awkward, hard to reach places.
