3 Reasons Why Dusting Is Important to HVAC Health

It’s frustrating to have a lot of dust in your Sunrise, Florida, home, but excessive dust is more than just a nuisance. Keeping your home clean and free of dust is good for your family’s health and for keeping your HVAC system functioning correctly. 

Dust Cycling Through Your Home

When you have dust in your home, it doesn’t just sit on baseboards and collect on your furniture. A lot of dust particles cycle through the air and back through your HVAC system. While that’s a good thing because it gets trapped in the filters, it also means it collects in your ductwork. When dust gets caught in your filter, your HVAC system has to work harder to push air through the filters and into your home. It’s detrimental to your air quality, and it damages your system, making it wear down faster than usual. 

Excessive Dust in the Home

Excessive dust in your home isn’t just bad for your HVAC. It’s problematic for your health as well. Dust can inflame both asthma and allergies, cause poor IAQ, and aesthetically make your home look bad. Dust collects in many places you don’t also realize like on baseboards, underneath your furniture, and on top of your cabinets and appliances. Make sure you dust with a damp rag or an electrostatic duster. Using a regular duster typically just moves the collected dust around and keeps it cycling through your home. 

Ways to Combat It

Fortunately, you don’t have to live with a dusty home. If you think your home is excessively dusty, have your ducts professionally cleaned. Also, change your air filters out regularly. You should check them at least once a month, especially during the seasons where you’re running your HVAC system around the clock. When the weather is mild, try leaving the windows open to get fresh air moving through your home instead of the recycled HVAC air.
