With the hectic holiday season coming to an end, I spent yesterday getting my house back in order. It was an all-day affair; taking down the Christmas tree, putting away the Christmas decorations and moving the furniture back where it belonged. As I was packing the decorations, I noticed that the dust, which is usually pretty relentless, was barely noticeable thanks to my new Aprilaire Electronic Air Purifier.
We decorated our home the first week of December and before getting the decorations out of the attic I cleaned the house from top to bottom making sure I dusted and cleaned thoroughly. I knew that once we hung the Christmas stockings, put out the Nativity Scene, snow globes, Christmas Candles and all of our other traditional Christmas decorations, dusting would be almost impossible.
Before having Aprilaire installed, dusting was a weekly chore at my house. I was amazed at how quickly the dust settled on top of the fireplace mantle and along the chair rails in the living room, not to mention the amount of dust that accumulated on top of the blades on the ceiling fan. So yesterday, armed with my trusted Liquid Gold and dusting cloth I was prepared to spend the day wiping a months worth of dust and cat hair from our furniture. Imagine my jubilee when I found that dusting wasn’t necessary and I could spend my day cleaning other areas of the house like the children’s bathroom!
Not only does the central air purifier help eliminate the dust, but it also reduces the amount of bacteria and virus particles that we inhale. This past month it seemed like everyone we knew was suffering from some sort of illness; a stomach bug, the flu, respiratory infections or the common Crud (a term we use in the south to describe an ailment when you just feel yucky). Luckily our family was able to avoid all of these illnesses with the help of our Aprilaire.. The Electronic Air Purifier removes 98% of bacteria-sized particles and 80% of virus-sized particles, and with the programmable thermostat, we can control our indoor air quality with the touch of a button.
Our system is programmed to run 30 minutes out of every hour. When I clean I use the setting on the Electronic Air Purifier to cleaning the air continually. Aprilaire helps me maintain the balance of a cleaner environment. My house has fewer dust particles and that’s a breath of fresh air!
