Why Do I Get So Much Dust In My Home?

Dust at home

Posted: December 19, 2019

If you have a forced air furnace, the warm air that it circulates around your home gets delivered through the ductwork.

You may not think about your duct system too much because most of it is hidden behind walls If you’ve never had the condition of your ductwork inspected, you should.

Research has shown that the leading indoor air quality (IAQ) concern for homeowners is excessive dust. Other worries revolve around the presence of airborne allergens, viruses/bacteria and mold/mildew.

In most cases, all of these problems can be traced to leaky ductwork. If you have a leak, your return ductwork (which takes the air inside your home back to your heating or cooling system) will draw air from places like garages, attics and crawl spaces.

Leaky Ducts Can Cause:

  • Dust, mold and mildew spores being circulated throughout your home.
  • A loss of as much as 40% of the heated or cooled air moving through your home – this forces your system to work harder, and you end up paying more.

One symptom of leaking ducts is a whistling noise because the airflow is not balanced.
