Dealing with the smoke

I heard a great idea from Bill Avery for dealing with smoke that gets into your home. Use a box fan with a furnace filter taped to the intake side of the fan. Let it run in the house and it will clean the smokey air. You can find filters in various sizes to fit your fan. The filter should be rated at least 2000 to remove smoke. We were able to find  2200 filter to fit our 20″ x 20″ box fan at Costco mail order for about $60 for a 4 pack.
