Prevent Dust with this Frugal Living Tip

E-mail Print PDF

I don’t know too many people that love to spend their time dusting, so if you’re like me, you would love to learn new ways of preventing the need for this household chore altogether. Okay, today’s frugal living tip may not get you out of your dusting duties forever, but it will reduce their frequency.

One of the most effective ways to decrease the amount of dust in your home is to ensure that your air conditioner and furnace filters are cleaned on a regular basis. Not only will this keep the amount of dust down, but it will also allow these units to run more efficiently, saving you more money.

Make it a habit of checking and cleaning these filters every other month and pick up a new hobby to fill the time you used to spend dusting.

DIY is definitely the way to go. I saved over $350 last summer when my central a/c quit. A local contractor wanted $500 to replace a motor, but I found a website that helped me get the motor I needed and walked me through the whole replacement process. I'm not very handy, either! Check out www.brokenthermostat.com if you ever need help with your heating or air conditioning.
