Electrolux EL6984A Canister Vacuum Cleaner Review

Combining efficiency with power, the Electrolux EL6984A Canister Vacuum Cleaner delivers on its promise of being one of the quietest canister vacuums that you’ll ever find.




It has a wide array of tools and attachments to help you clean up almost anything that you might come across. Besides that, it is easy to carry, easy to operate, and a vacuum cleaner that you will feel good about using.

The first thing that just about anyone will ask about the Electrolux EL6984A Canister Vacuum Cleaner is, Is it really quiet? The answer is yes! The manufacturer boasts that it only creates 60 DBA of noise output while you use it.

Just to put that into perspective, a common blow dryer is often around 70 DBA and the noise level inside of an average household is about 50 DBA. So, you can see the advantages of this you can vacuum early in the morning or clean late at night without waking anyone up or bothering people in the next few rooms. You might not believe that a vacuum can be so quiet, but reviews written by customers all agree that it has a truly low noise output.

Electrolux tells us that their EL6984A Green Canister Vacuum is an eco-friendly product how do we know? First of all, it uses a high-efficiency motor that produces a higher suction using less electricity and the plastic housing of the vacuum is made of 55% recycled materials. Plus, when you receive it after you order, about 80% of the packaging that it ships in is made of recycled unbleached cardboard.

The idea here is that you’re using a vacuum that will relieve just a little bit of stress on the environment. If that is important to you, its a big plus! However, if you not all that interested in eco-friendly products, its still a great vacuum.

If you have to clean down low, you can move from carpet to bare wood floor very easily. Just about everything on this vacuum cleaner swivels, so you can maneuver it in and out of tight spaces and between rooms without much difficulty.




You can clean underneath beds, furniture, and just about anything else. But, if you need to clean up high you can use the Electrolux telescopic tube and any number of attachments which include a combination nozzle/brush specially designed for curtains, and a high quality crevice tool.

Users often comment that it is extremely easy to clean just about anything using the attachments and telescoping tube.

If you are the type of person that wants to have some control while you are cleaning, you will appreciate the adjustable suction power control that is both on the canister and on the hose handle.

Its easily accessible and can be switched without any trouble. This will also adjust how quiet the vacuum is. The Electrolux EL6984A Canister Vacuum Cleaner comes with a replaceable motor filter, and includes a bag-full indicator so you know when to replace the bag inside.

When you’re ready to turn it on, there is a convenient foot activated on/off switch and another foot pedal that automatically retracts the power cord. All of these elements go together to create an environmentally friendly, powerful and easy to operate vacuum that you can feel good about using.
