Polishing and dusting the home is no ones favorite task, but it has to be done if we want our homes to be clean and healthy. Unless you can afford to have a maid service clean the home, the typical homeowner is forced to undertake this tedious chore at least every one to two weeks, and depending on the size of your home it could take hours. How would you like to reduce the number of times you have to dust per month? Well, it is possible, and the solution will not only decrease the amount of dust in your home but it will also give you cleaner, healthier air to breathe.
Circulating Air for Cleaning
A whole house air cleaner can truly improve the air in your home and decrease the amount of dust on the surfaces as well. However, the way you use your air cleaner does matter! The air cleaner can only clean the air that circulates through the ducts. If the circulating fan is not on, the cleaner cannot clean the air. So, you have two choices. You can either run the fan around the clock or only run the fan when you are using heating or cooling.
Killing Two Birds with One Stone
Only running the fan when the furnace and air conditioner run is the most energy efficient way to use the fan, but you can still maximize your air quality without wasting energy. Simply turn on the fan every time you vacuum the carpets in your home. The vacuum stirs up the dust in the home, and when the fan is on, you can collect it before it settles elsewhere. Leave the fan on for an extra hour after you are done vacuuming so you can capture as much dust as possible.
