More than likely this is because your air or exhaust ducts are in need of an extensive cleaning and the filters changed out.

When the dust builds up in your air ducts and exhaust system it causes your dryer and HVAC system to work overtime and shorten the life of these expensive items. Not only is this bad for your appliances and mechanical system, it's also a fire hazard.
