In the course of a day, your air conditioning and heating system circulates a lot of air throughout your home. The outdoor unit draws in air from the outside, which is then cooled (or heated, depending on the season) and distributed to different rooms throughout the house via vents and registers. For the most part, any dust from the outside gets caught by the filters that line your HVAC system, maintaining your indoor air quality. Sometimes, however, dust can still find its way indoors.
How do you resolve the issue of excessive dust in your HVAC system? Let our heating and cooling specialists at HVAC Construction explain why this happens and what you can do about it.
Where Is It Coming From?
Dust can come from a variety of different sources. A lot of the dust that gets drawn into systems installed by HVAC Construction comes from the outdoors; however, most of it doesn’t make it past your system’s filters, assuming they’re properly maintained. Some dust particles come from humans themselves, as every day we unknowingly shed billions of dead skin cells that eventually end up as dust.
How Does Dust Affect Your HVAC System?
In small amounts, dust has very little effect on the quality of your air. Even if the dust source is indoors, your duct network will continuously push the same air through your filters until the dust is no longer in circulation. When you haven’t changed your filters for a while, however, the filters become clogged, allowing dust to make its way to the coils and impede their operation. Excessive dust can also affect the blower fans and registers, slowing them down and leading to poor circulation.
How Do You Resolve Dust Problems?
There are many ways to lessen the amount of dust in your home. Cleaning your house regularly can offset the small amount of dust that gets in your system every day. Routine maintenance, tune-ups and inspections of your HVAC Construction air conditioning and heating system is also a must-have for a dust-free environment.
