Tips to Prevent Dust Buildup in Your Ducts

  • Air filter replacement
    • Dirt and dust buildup on your filter can easily lead to build-up within the confines of your ducts – and its distribution throughout your home. Home air filters require frequent replacement – every 3-months, at a minimum. Children or pets? Swap it monthly. This not only keeps ducts and indoor air clean but safeguards system efficiency and lifespan.
  • Contact an indoor air quality service
  • Discuss HVAC system additions such as:
    • Specialty air filters.
    • Upgrading to a HEPA filter with a MERV rating of 10 or higher. Cheap washable fiberglass filters barely improve the performance of your HVAC system, and they certainly do not help improve your air quality. Schedule professional maintenance.
    • A professional should come to take a look once in the spring and again in the fall before seasonal temperature extremes put your system under stress, can identify issues that can affect indoor air quality and system performance.
  • Dirty ductwork.
    • Dirty ductwork can worsen health issues and allergies. Dust and dirt buildup on duct surfaces indicates the need for duct cleaning. Hidden out of sight, only a pro can identify this issue without potentially damaging HVAC components and rectify the situation with proper tools and safe cleaning solutions.
    • Mold growth.
    • Mold buildup in ducts indicates your system needs rapid attention.
  • Pest infestation.
    • Pest droppings and debris pose a huge health risk for home occupants.
