The heat wave is here, and we do not plan to do much, but stop for a second to consider on of the most important seasonal housecleaning tasks. Everyone has the air conditioners, evaporative coolers, and fans going around the clock. We welcome and even wonder how we ever lived without the convenience that they provide. However, let’s take a moment to consider the importance of cleaning all your fans and air filters in order to make your home more dust and allergen free.

Clean the fans

Ceiling and portable fans are important for circulating warm or cool air to make our homes more comfortable. In fact, some people prefer to use fans in place of an air conditioner. There are few things more discomforting than turning on the fan and getting a blowback of dust and grime. Take a look at the blades and the housing on your ceiling fans. Even in the cleanest homes, fans gather dust and dirt before we realize it. Usually because they run constantly, and we never imagine them to collect dust while working. They should be cleaned at least once a month. The buildup can become so heavy that the fan will not even work efficiently. More importantly, dirty, dusty fans can lead to breathing problems for everyone in the house.

Air conditioner filters

One of the most overlooked items in many homes, is changing or cleaning your heating and cooling system air filters. When your air conditioner does not seem to be providing that cool waft of air, the filter should be the first thing that you check. A clean air filter is the single most important factor in the proper performance of your HVAC system. Homes without pets should change the filters about every 90 days. If you have one pet, change the filter every 60 days. However, you should really consider changing the filter every 30 days if you own multiple pets or if someone in the home suffers from allergies. Filters should also be changed every thirty days if there is a smoker in the house.
