About Northern Vacuums Ltd.

A Family Business that offers you the Best.


With almost six decades in the electrical trade around Carlisle, we’re confident in our ability to offer great advice, the very best choice and great prices to local people.

From our humble beginnings in premises on The Viaduct, above Little and Ballantyne’s Seed Warehouse, we moved to Old Globe Lane in the 1960’s and then to our current showrooms on Abbey Street in the 1980’s where we are handily placed for the city centre and on street parking.

  • Huge selection of electrical goods large and small
  • Expert advice & personal service
  • Experienced Engineers for installation, servicing and repairs
  • Wide range of spare parts in stock or to order


Our Showrooms, in three adjoining shops, display a huge choice, from our washing machine collection, tumble driers, dishwashers and electric cookers, gas cookers and cooker hoods, fridges, freezers and many smaller electrical products.


You won’t find better choice backed by decades of experience anywhere in the region. That’s demonstrated in the fact that the prestigious Rangemaster brand trust Northern Vacuums to be their only Design Centre in the whole of Cumbria and we’re also proud to be an approved Stoves range centre.

In addition our fleet of vans and experienced, friendly engineers cover a 40 mile radius from our city centre showrooms for delivery, installation, servicing and repairs.

We can make the whole buying process hassle-free from start to finish.

So whatever electrical products you’re looking for, look no further than Northern Vacuums – the most switched-on people around.
