Now all the power wattage has been reduced I'm considering getting a refurbished Hoover as I have small children and dogs my old one is I feel about to die ( another storey ) has anyone any experience with refurbished?? Would you or just get a new one??
The lowering of vacuuming wattages has not caused a major drop in suction because as part of legislation, the vacuum still has to perform to the same standards with less power. That's why the ratings have been introduced. Higher wattage doesn't mean it will pick up better anyway, it just means it uses more electric. That's the whole point of the new law.
