Is Your HVAC System Making Your Home Dusty?

We all know the struggle of cleaning your home from top to bottom only to wake up a few days later and notice that dust has already begun to accumulate once again. It’s an annoying process that keeps us continually reaching for the duster day in and day out. Thankfully there might be an easy solution to this tiresome routine. It’s very possible that one of the main reasons that your home gathers dust so quickly is because of your HVAC system. Here are some of the main ways that your HVAC could be failing you and your home. 

Possible Leaks 
If your system doesn’t have a proper seal on it then it can result in air being able to move freely in and out of your air ducts, which is not a good thing. When this happens the dusty air that accumulates in places that are hardly ever cleaned, such as your attic or crawl space, can get sucked into the air duct and dispersed throughout your home. 

Insufficient Filter 
Many homeowners are simply using the wrong kind of filter and they aren’t even aware of it. If the HVAC filter you currently have is too cheap then it’s likely not filtering out many of the harmful irritants such as dirt and dust. Many fibreglass filters fail to meet the recommended standard for proper filtration. Be careful not to get a filter that is too strong though as this can result in your system requiring more force, and therefore more power usage, to draw in the adequate air supply. 

Even if you have a good filter it could still be failing to do its job properly if you’re not changing it out regularly. As with most other products, an HVAC filter will become less and less efficient over time. This is due to the accumulation of dirt and dust particles being trapped by the vent and eventually clogging it up to the point where it is no longer useful. Regularly changing your filters and/or replacing them with quality ones can have a significant impact on the amount of dust that is dispersed from your HVAC system. 

To get your HVAC system properly inspected and cleaned, you should contact a professional. Luckily our team has several specialists that are always ready to help you make your HVAC system and home dust-free, so contact us today.

by Rita, Scarborough on Twintech Heating and Cooling
We were so pleased with their service

When our old oil furnace finally broke down we decided it was time to finally convert to natural gas and finally install central air conditioning at the same time. Knowing it was going to be a significant investment for us, we wanted to make the right choice. Twintech came highly recommended by a friend and we were not disappointed. From the first contact with the salesperson, until the final touches on the installation, we were so pleased with their service. Everyone from the company was so friendly, efficient and a pleasure to deal with. Best of all, the cost was very competitive. We would certainly recommend Twintech to anyone requiring HVAC work in their home.

We highly recommend this company. Thank you, Mitch, Dave & Greg.

They stand by their products and are a pleasure to deal with!

The team was great! Very knowledgeable, professional and extremely helpful. A few days after install the unit didn’t seem to be working, user error, but within minutes of contacting them..on a Saturday.. a tech was on the phone troubleshooting with us. I highly recommend Twintech for your cooling or heating needs. They stand by their products and a pleasure to deal with.

Within a couple of hours, we had a new unit up and running!

During the hottest week in the summer our old A/C decided to call it quits. I called Twintech Heating & Cooling after receiving a referral from a family member; came highly rated for being an honest, family-run business, who appreciates their customers. Dave was able to accommodate my hectic schedule and book a late evening appointment to walk through the specifics. Greg and Mitch arrived exactly on time a few days later, were very polite and friendly, and within a couple of hours had a new unit up and running. I also received a follow-up call to ensure we were happy with the Amana.

Professionally done and took care to cover all entry floors

Professionally done and took care to cover all entry floors to the house for the installers to remove the old furnace and install a new furnace.
I also made recommendations of the tankless water heater that we had installed and items to address. We did not know they also installed tankless water heaters.

by Bill, Pickering on Twintech Heating and Cooling
Proud to support this local company

Price was not the cheapest nor the most expensive of my quotes. It's the quality of the installation that makes for a good AC system. The twins' knowledge & professionalism was evident in the small details:
Very clean work. Greg made sure that the refrigerant level & temperature were correct. They reinstall the insulation & vapor barrier around the wall. The outside electrical cords were secured to the wall. Proud to support this local company. Thank you.

by Taz on Twintech Heating and Cooling
Arrived on time worked very efficiently and were very clean

Great team of guys came to do the work. Very professional. Arrived on time worked very efficiently and were very clean. They answered any questions we had without hesitation. The air conditioner works great and is so quiet. I highly recommend them and they don't try to up-sell anything right from the start.
