We are going to die under swarms of flies, how the hell are they getting in the house and how do we get rid of them?

At the beginning of last week we found about 30 flies standing by our window. Out house is pretty clean, so we assumed it was a widow that had been open or maybe our back door. We got rid of them, completely disinfected the whole house and went to bed.
The next day, there were at least FIFTY flies! on the same living room window!
They are super black and kind of chunky. Buzzy and also not so quick. It pretty easy to kill them. Is it possible they get in through the AC vents? we have moved everything (fridge, cooker) and scrubbed and disinfected the floors. We thought for a while that our cat had brought in something, but have not been able to find any mice or birds.
I can't smell anything rotting, the house is spotless and all the windows and doors are closed. The only food that out is the cat's, but they don;t seem to interested in it.
