ACA can help with many consumer inquiries and also has (limited) funding for testing of products. Anyone having difficulty deciding which vacuum cleaner will remove the most dust from their house, and have the most efficient filter, is advised to write to ACA to ask them to compare HEPA vacs, ducted vacuum systems and vacuums like Vorwerk which have power heads. Choice Magazine September 1999 reported that the Hoover U6331-906 upright domestic vacuum cleaner removed the most dust of 13 vacuums tested but efficiency of filtration was not assessed.
