It sounds like your ducts are excessively leaky allowing dust to be pulled into the ducts and delivered throughout the house.

A duct test along with sealing them is definitely in order along with a maintenance and cleaning check of the unit.

You may also wish to have a full diagnostic energy audit done to help find any other issues.
