Dusty Home? The Problem May Be Your Heating System

One of our technicians recently heard a homeowner in Amherst, NH complaining about the dust in her home. She mentioned that after cleaning her living room it would again be covered with a thin layer of dust only days later. This homeowner had it right, this isn’t normal! In fact, the culprit actually ended up being her heating system.

Dirty Air Filters Can Contribute to Dust Level

The most common contributor for a high level of dust in a home is a dirty air filter. In most cases you should be changing your home’s air filter every three months or so. During the peak winter months you may even want to change your air filter monthly. Dirty air filters circulate the dust throughout the home through the heating unit. This can also have a significant impact not only on the cleaning struggle in the home, but on your family’s overall health.

Leaky Ducts the Culprit for Amherst Homeowner

Another cause of increased dust at home are leaks in your ducts, which was the case for this Amherst homeowner. A heating system with leaks or holes in the ductwork will suck up dust and dirt from the home’s attic or crawl space, only to then release it into the air of the home through the vents.

We were able to troubleshoot the problem for this homeowner, isolating and repairing the leaky duct. She has seen a dramatic change in the indoor air quality and is saving time on her housekeeping, which couldn’t make her happier.

Testimonials & Reviews

We had central air conditioning installed last year by Joyce and were very satisfied with the job. Today, John N. serviced the unit and all of the components and he was incredibly thorough and professional. He explained exactly what was serviced and what to avoid (greenery around the outdoor unit). I highly recommend Joyce Cooling & Heating!
