MY TOWN HOME GETS VERY DUSTY. I CAN SEE THE DUST ON THE AIR VENTS. I'VE HAD ALL THE DUCTS AND VENTS CLEANED AND I STILL SEE DUST ACCUMULATE QUICKLY. I THINK IT MAY HAVE SOMETHING TO DO WITH THE ATTIC BECAUSE I DON'T THINK IT HAS A FAN TO BLOW OUT THE AIR FROM THE HOME. I HAVE A CRAWL SPACE ATTIC WITH BLOWN FIBER GLASS INSULATION. CAN YOU PLEASE GIVE ME YOUR ADVISE/ SOLUTION TO MY PROBLEM BEFORE I BUY A AIR FILTER SYSTEM THAT WILL ONLY COVER ONE PART OF MY HOME. I REALLY WOULD LIKE SOMETHING THAT COULD BE ATTACHED TO A FIXTURE IN THE CELLAR THAT WOULD AIR MY WHOLE HOUSE. PLEASE HELP

It is very difficult to comment without seeing your situation. You can always have your "dust" lab tested to determine what it is and hopefully the source. HEPA filtration in the home is never a bad idea. The filters are expensive, but so are medical bills.

We had a new hot air furnace installed 2 yrs. ago. Since then I have noticed a fine white powder that forms on all the furniture. We keep changing the filter but to no avail. I am constantly coughing & this has become a problem for me because I am also suffering from breast cancer. Any suggestions? Are there any companies that can come down to inspect the air quality of our home or the furnace????
