How Dust Impacts Your HVAC System

No matter how often you clean your home, dust accumulates quickly. Does it feel like it’s piling up almost immediately? Constant dust build-up can be an issue for every homeowner, but did you know that dust can impact your heating and cooling system, too? Here’s how.

Dust and ducts:
How’s the ductwork in your home? Do you know if it has leaks or cracks? If there are cracks or areas where air can leak in or out, you’re not only losing money in wasted clean air, but you’re also allowing dirty, untreated air into your home. Untreated air is full of dust, pollutants, pollen, and other harmful particles that impact the air quality of your home. Be sure to have your ductwork sealed properly. If you do, you’ll save money and you’ll likely notice a difference in the amount of dust that is building up around your home. We are proud to use Aeroseal technology to help seal leaky ductwork. Talk to us about how it can work to seal any gaps, leaks, or cracks in your home’s ductwork.

Dust and air filters:
Your heating and cooling system is made up of many different components, but the air filters are one of the primary ways that your system traps dust, dirt, and other debris. However, if you neglect regularly cleaning and/or replacing of your filters, dust will build up and be automatically re-circulated throughout the air in your home. That means that your home will not only be dusty, but you’ll be breathing dusty air! Avoid unnecessary build-up and clean your filters on a consistent basis.
