Dirty ducts

Richard, cleaning ducts is not a good DIY project.
Hire a service, it should not be a major investment.
No offence, but trying to retrofit filters at outlets to make up for the
dirty ducts is just silly. Get the ducts cleaned,
install a pleated filter and change it regularly.

Another thing to consider is leakage in the return
ducts. This can pick up dust from unfinished basements
or crawlspaces. The answer is to seal the ducts,
but both the return and supply ducts must be sealed
together or you create new problems.
