Maximize Indoor Air Quality Improvement Products

With the arrival of spring, many homeowners are finding that their allergy symptoms have also made an appearance. Instead of suffering all season long, many of these people are deciding to upgrade their indoor air quality products in hopes that they will be able to remove many of their allergy irritants from the air within the home. High powered air cleaners or MERV 16 air filters are a great asset for any home, but are you getting the most out of your indoor air quality improvement products? If you aren’t running the circulating fan around the clock, then you are missing out on cleaner air and possibly better allergy relief.

Around the Clock Circulation

Air cleaners and filters that use the furnace’s circulation fan to clean the air can be helped along when you run the furnace fan around the clock. The only way that these filters can clean the air is when this circulating fan is running because they do not have a fan of their own. Normally the fan will shut down in between cycles, but if you go to the thermostat and turn the fan to the “on” position, it will run in between cycles as well. This will maximize that amount of air that comes in contact with the filter and therefore lead to cleaner, fresher air in the home.
