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.
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.
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.

This company is fantastic. Dave came out and gave me a very honest and reasonable quote, unlike a quote received from another company. I had a bunch of questions that were easily answered and when I had questions regarding heating/cooling a previously unheated room above the Garage, Dave arranged for Greg to come out for an assessment of this new space and gave me his recommendation along with his professional thoughts on all of my options.
These guys have been nothing but Professional, honest and helpful along the way. I can't recall the two other guys doing the install, but they were great as well. Good workmanship, everything was cleaned up and everything functions as promised. I could go on and on about my experience, but it's all positive so what more could you want?
Give them a call, see for yourself. If I had to buy another furnace/AC or heat pump, they'd be my first call.
I hired twin tech to convert my townhouse heating from electric to gas and install a furnace and a/c unit. I had talked with many other vendors, and received several quotes, but chose them, and very happy I did. Here are some of the reasons why:
1. They were realistic about the timeline for the work, when they could start and how long it would take. (They said upfront, it was their busy season and would need to get back to me in 3 weeks, which they did):
2. They had a quote with options for me. They were clear about the entertainment of what they would and would not do (they’d build duct work, id need another contractor to box in ductwork). This allowed me to plan as I was my own general contractor for my renovations).
3. They spoke to me in a language I understood, neither too technical nor too simple. They answered all my questions as I had them. Everyone is so lovely to work with, the sales team and the contractors who are worked in my home.
4. It’s been 4 m since the work was complete. They still answer my emails and my furnace is working very well!
I unabashedly recommend! Price, customer care and quality workmanship were all amazing!
On one of the coldest days of winter, our furnace stopped working. Our regular furnace company came and told us we had a CO2 leak and shut us off. Their quote for a new furnace was way too high and they couldn't even install it on the same day. TwinTech was recommended to us by a friend. We called and spoke to Dave who was very nice and knowledgeable. Grant showed up a short time later and a new furnace was installed the same day with no troubles at all. Best of all, we received a higher-end furnace than what was offered by our previous company and at a cheaper price. I would recommend TwinTech with no hesitation at all.
I installed a new furnace and Air conditioner with them. The installation is of high quality and according to standards. The guys are professional and reasonably priced.. I highly recommend them.
Had new furnace installed and ran into some difficulties but the contractor responded in a timely and efficient manner - after further service calls were made, a reasonable resolution was found.
