Dusting is a job that never seems to end, especially for those of us who live in warm climates. In sunny Spring Hill, Florida, dust is a common problem in homes. If your home needs to be dusted more than once a week and it is kept generally clean, there are steps we can take to eliminate dust problems. Extremely dusty homes usually need HVAC maintenance before dust bunnies morph into wolverines and cause problems. Consider these factors if dusting your home feels like a full-time job:
Inspect Air Filters
Sometimes we like to save money on items such as air filters for our HVAC systems. It is understandable but ill-advised to use the wrong type of filters. Use high-quality air filters that are recommended for your unit, which is usually an accordion filter. Pinching pennies on filters can cost thousands of dollars when HVAC systems are bogged down and destroyed by dust.
Air leaks in ductwork cause up to 20 percent of pre-conditioned air loss in the average home. Leaks in ductwork let treated air escape and leave dirty and untreated air inside. In time, air laden with dust, smoke, exhaust, and other pollutants coats our air ducts with grime. Have an HVAC technician seal those leaks and enjoy cleaner air and a reduction in dust.
Clean Air Ducts
Not all homes need air duct cleaning, but some do. If a home is dusty no matter how much it is cleaned, it is an indication of dirty ducts. An HVAC specialist needs to strip the inner walls of your air ducts of substances that make homes dirty.
Dust can build up in HVAC systems, leading to costly problems. Condensing units and coils can even be destroyed if infiltrated by too much dust.
