We cannot disregard the significance of the HVAC system in our lives and our homes, whether it is winter or summer. Every home’s HVAC system operates according to the same set of guidelines. Any homeowner aware of these fundamental concepts will be happy with their newfound knowledge of their house, including the house’s interior. If your home is consistently covered with dust, your HVAC system alerts you that a filter is inadequate and that it’s time to clean your ducts.
How to deal with a coating of dust that is continually present? If your home has a constant layer of dust, your air ducts need to be cleaned. Depending on how long it’s been, different levels of cleaning will be necessary. After your air ducts have been fully cleaned, your HVAC system will work better and will be recirculating clean air from your supply duct.
Let’s analyze your HVAC system. First, after drawing air from the outside, your air handling equipment forces it into your room through your ducts. The air is compelled to return to the return duct after passing through your room. The Air handling unit circulates the residual air, combines it with outdoor air, and draws it before pumping it back into the room as supply air. Exhaust air is released along with some of the air. The supply air is a mixture of recirculated air and outside air. It is a combination because it is more efficient to achieve the desired temperature by using some air from the room rather than all outside air.
Air drawn from your room enters the return vent with particles. bacteria, pet dander, dirt, and skin. Your duct filters prevent undesirable particles from entering. Yet, no screen can completely prevent these particles from passing through. These particles can block the duct and even send it back into your room via the supply duct, leaving your room’s surface covered in a thick coating of dust.
