This may be a silly question but...

I plan on evaluating my house for HF noise sources by powering the radio 
from a battery and powering down the rest of the house.  I just have to 
have some sources with cell phone chargers, computer routers, laptop 
chargers and such.  Then I'll power up one breaker at a time.

Can I assume that the best receiver settings are AM mode and as the 
widest bandwidth filter settings?  As each breaker is switched on I 
should cycle through the bands?  I suppose if I do this I'll need to 
cycle the breaker each time I change bands?

I better do this when the XYL isn't home :))
