How Much Does a Robotic Vacuum Cost?

post Post    

A robotic vacuum -- or a robovac -- offers intelligent programming and guided vacuuming abilities. Robovacs use brushes and suction to clean tile and wood floors in addition to carpets, and come in a variety of shapes and sizes.

Typical costs:

  • Robotic vacuum cleaners typically cost $200-$400 for popular models that can navigate floors well without getting stuck, are reliable, and have high owner-satisfaction.
  • Well-rated models of robotic vacuums include the iRobot Roomba 614[1] , which retails for $225-$250, the iRobot Roomba 675[2] , which retails for $250-$275, and the Eufy RoboVac 11S[3] , which retails for around $220.
  • More expensive models include the iRobot Roomba S9[4] , which retails for $1,000-$1,100. High-end models like the S9 have features like large bristles, which make it more effective at sweeping things up, a more powerful vacuum, and a larger canister, so it can go up to a month without being emptied.

What should be included:
  • Each model robotic vacuum is different, but all should come with a light-weight cleaning device with a range of brushes. The vacuums "see" the house and avoid obstacles such as stairs and sleeping pets. Most standard-size vacuums hold a charge for two-three hours; smaller devices generally run out of steam in less than an hour.
  • Optional features include a charging station, a remote control device, filters, bumpers for room installation so the vacuum avoids certain areas, and cleaning tools.
Additional costs:
  • Robotic vacuums come with a wide range of accessories and replacement parts that can add to the cost of purchasing and maintaining one of the devices.
  • Replacement batteries for robotic vacuums cost $20-$90.
  • Power supplies and charging stations for robotic vacuums cost $20-$60. Some models, like the Roomba series, can use upgraded chargers that recharge the device faster.
  • Replacement filters for robotic vacuums cost about $15-$20 and generally come in multi-packs. Some models use HEPA filters, which cost about $25.
  • Some robotic vacuums require bumpers strategically placed around a room to help the device recognize obstacles. The bumpers also help prevent scuffing. Bumpers and protective strips cost $10-$20.
