    What is an "air condiroomer"? Why would it have a humidifier? Dust can be from any number of sources. Can you hazard a guess as to the source? The only way to reduce dust is to address the source.

    Get/use a steam "vaporizer". It puts moisture onto the air & will definitely help to control dust.

    If you don't have a steam vaporizer, you can put a big pot/boiler of water on a stove & bring it to a boil. Can reduce heat to simmer once water reaches boiler. The steam is moisture being put into the air.

    A 3rd option is a water fountain in your room/s with the most intense dust issues. I have 2 fountains running now.

      The moisture the fountains, especially running ones, put into the air is hard to comprehend until one has actually checked it out. Both fountains I have are running water. They put half gallon to slightly over of water into the air every day. The running water evaporates into that air as it falls, much faster than sitting still although it does evaporate sitting in containers as you have found.

      My best friend couldn't believe it could make such a difference until she put a steam vaporizer (heats water & makes steam) in her bedroom where not only she & hubby but "6" big family labs sleep. This was a wk ago. Yesterday, she bought another one to put in her bird room. I'm anxious to see her reaction to the new steam vaporizer. She has some running fountains outside. I'm betting one gets brought up inside. Haha.

      I'm so glad you have found my information about putting moisture into the air helpful.

    Clean / change the filter. Vacuum the HVAC air ducts. Take off the covers and stick the vacuum attachment in as far as it will go.

    After you dust all your furniture next time, wipe all of it with a Fabric Softener Sheet! It will help repel the dust. :) If you want to test this theory, only rub down half of a coffee table or something. LMK :)

    We live in the desert and have sand rather than dust... I dust once a week and extra if I have company coming.... otherwise I would go crazy trying to keep the surfaces dust free.... I would rather have the dust and fresh air... than close the place up to keep the dust out.
    A home humidifier system might help YOU out though
