Henry Hoover - The entire range explained 1

Henry Hoover. A British icon. The quintessential vacuum cleaner.

Dating back to the time of FlashDance, track suits and shoulder pads, he may be filled with nostalgia but is still viewed today as one of the toughest, most durable and easy to use vacuums on the market.

He continues to hold his position as the best-selling bagged cylinder vacuum in the UK, and it’s really not hard to see why.

In a nutshell, Henry is built to last. He’s cheaper than most of his rivals and does the job well. Look after Henry well and he’ll be with you for years.

Over the years we’ve seen the Henry range grow – James, Harry, Hetty and Henry Xtra are just a few of the bold-coloured, character-themed vacuum additions which have joined Henry as the range diversified.

Whether it’s clearing up troublesome pet hair, sorting out wet spillages or cleaning stubborn carpet areas, Nuumatic are confident there’s a Henry model for you.

Only got 5 minutes

With over 7 million produced since it was launched in the 1980s, Henry Hoover continues to be Nuumatic’s most popular product, well-established in homes and offices across the country.

The Henry range has found a special place in customers hearts – where else do you find yourself starting to refer to your vacuum as ‘him’ or ‘her’?

They deliver power, longevity and reliability, and still manage to come in at a reasonable price with the range starting at around £120.

Not only that, but every single vacuum and accessory in the Henry range is manufactured here in the UK.

Bag changing

When the time does come to empty your Henry vacuum, the simple design makes it an easy job.

Simply unclip the top part of the vacuum, which contains the motor and mains cable; lift out the filter; disengage the dust bag, and fit a new one in its place.

Warranty

Vacuum warranty period: 2 years

Individual accessories and spare parts warranty period: 6 months

The manufacturer’s warranty does exclude consumable parts such as carbon brushes, floor brushes, mops etc. that are considered replaceable from time to time during the normal working life of the machine.

It is worth keeping in mind that Numatic advises avoiding using non-Numatic dust bags, which can be detrimental to machine performance, and may invalidate the manufacturer’s warranty.

Frequently Asked Questions

Where is the Henry range manufactured?

The entire Henry range is manufactured in the UK.

How often do I change the dust bag in my Henry and can I reuse it?

Once the machine has become full or has low suction, replace the dust bag. The dust bags have been designed to be sealed and then disposed of; they are not reusable.

Can my Henry vacuum overheat?

Henry is fitted with a thermal cut out. If he has been running for an extended period of time, the overload will cut in and stop Henry from working until he has cooled down.
