Dust is naturally in the atmosphere, but some areas have more than others. If you live on a dirt road for instance, there will be more dust when it's dry.
You might have dust coming from construction nearby.

The best way to control dust, is to keep your windows closed, and use filters.
There are several types of filter which you can use, and I cannot recommend anything specific.

Moving to a different location; higher altitude will usually help. There is definitely less dust in the air at 5,000m than there is at sea level

i recommend staying away from the pleated type of filters. not only are they expensive, but the thicker material used in their can actually put a strain on forced air systems. ive spent more than one occasion trying to figure out why a furnace/air handler wasnt working correctly only to eventually replace the pleated filter with the cheap $1 throwaways and have everything return to working order. it's the first thing i check now on certain calls.
