Dust is an ever-present challenge in the home. Though it’s nearly impossible to eliminate, you can take steps to keep dust under control where it does the most damage. Keep your home clean and energy efficient by learning where you’ll find these troublesome dust deposits in your Dover, Delaware, home and what you can do to fix them.

Clogging Your Filters

Your HVAC filter is designed to capture dust particles as they circulate through the home, so it’s only natural that you’ll find a big buildup of dust here. Many homeowners forget that they need to change their HVAC filter on a regular basis to keep dust in check. Check the filter once a month to see if it’s dirty, and change it at least once every three months to cut down on dust in the home.

Building Up in Your Ductwork

The dust that isn’t captured by your HVAC filter travels on into the ductwork. Here, it will often stick to the walls of the ducts. If you have a major accumulation of dust in your ductwork, you may see it blowing out of the vents and into your home.

Accumulating In the HVAC System

Your HVAC system sees plenty of dust of its own. This can build up and severely clog the fans, motors, or compressor. Too much dust on the coil makes it difficult for it to absorb heat properly, which can cause the evaporator coil to ice. The best way to tackle this dust is with an annual maintenance visit. As part of your tuneup, our HVAC technicians will thoroughly clean the unit so you’re dust-free.
