Common Home Problems & Solutions: Dust

Common Home Problems & Solutions: DustIt’s been said that a happy home is also a healthy home, but keeping your home clean and healthy isn’t always as easy as it sounds. Sure cleaning your kitchen and bathrooms should be done on a regular basis, but every home has what seems like an endless amount of dust that can impact the health of your home and family if not addressed.

Essentially, dust comes from a variety of sources in New Jersey and is nearly impossible to completely get rid of. Dust particles can originate from carpet fibers, bugs, clothing fibers, animal fur, feathers, pollen, leaves, as well as construction activities such as sanding wood or drywall. Dust that isn’t produced within your home can seep in through poor venting or weak seals around windows and doors. A large increase in the amount of dust in your home could also mean that you need to change your furnace or air conditioning filter.

Get Professional Help

If dust is a major issue for your home and no amount of cleaning seems to be doing the trick, then it might be time to enlist the help of a certified professional HVAC technician from a company like Point Bay Energy Heating and Cooling. Having an HVAC technician get rid of dust is the most efficient way to ensure your home is optimized to be dust free.

Point Bay HVAC professionals can help in the following ways:

  • They can check your furnace and air conditioning systems to ensure they’re running properly and that the air filters are changed regularly. As mentioned, a dirty furnace filter can lead to an increase in the amount of dust circulating in your home, so changing it can have a big impact on air quality.
  • If you have a clothes dryer that’s not properly vented to the exterior of your home, exhaust and dust from repeated use can escape into your laundry room and the rest of your house. It’s important to check for holes in the tubing and to also check the connections at each end of the tubing to ensure they are sealed properly.
  • Dust can also build up over time in the ductwork in your home. It can be leftover from initial or subsequent construction or can be the result of operating the heating and cooling system without regularly changing the filter. Full home duct cleaning is a guaranteed way to ensure your duct system is clean and free of debris, dust, and any other matter that may have taken up residence within the system.
