Why Is My Home So Dusty?

Could your heating and air conditioning be the reason for your dusty house? It might not be the first thing you consider, but it could be the biggest contributor. So, instead of spending your life with a Swiffer in hand, find out how your HVAC air filter can make your house so dusty in the first place.

What Your Air Filter Does

As the first line of defense, your HVAC air filter protects your heating and air conditioning systems from dirt, dust, and other airborne particles. But it does more than that. It also helps improve your indoor air quality by preventing much of that dust from circulating through your home.

What a Dirty Filter Means

When your filter is dirty or clogged, it is no longer effective at trapping the dust. Dirty filters put your HVAC system in danger of damage and reduced performance from those particles. It also means the un-trapped dust moves through the system, your vents, and back out into the rooms of your home. You’ll breathe easier and dust less with a clean filter.

Why Filter Type Matters

When it comes to the dust factor in your home, filter type matters. If you invest in low-grade filters, they can allow more particles, including dust, through and circulate back into your house and onto your furniture. However, a reliable HVAC technician can recommend the best filter for your system and your home to be sure you’re taking care of your heating and cooling system as well as reducing that pesky dust.
