When they’re working, its easy to forget about our air ducts. But your ductwork is one of the most important parts of your home or commercial space. Air ducts move warm or cold air throughout your home, keeping you comfortable no matter the season. But that also means that the air inside your home often gets recirculated many times. This makes it easy for dust, particles, and allergens to build up in your ductwork. At Ambient Edge, we offer top-rated air duct cleaning, sealing, and repair services by highly trained technicians.

How often should my air ducts be cleaned?
The quick answer is once every 5 to 10 years. The difference often depends on the needs or activity of your household.
For private homes, it all depends on the needs of your household. Households with lots of pet hair or smoke will require more frequent cleaning. Also, if you or anyone in your house has allergies, asthma, or other breathing related concerns, you may wish to clean your air ducts every 5 years—perhaps more often, if breathing issues continue.
When it comes to businesses, you’re dealing with a lot more factors. Highly active spaces like restaurants or kitchens put air ducts through the ringer and require more frequent cleaning. We recommend cleaning commercial air ducts at least once every 5 years.
Whether you’re a homeowner, business owner, or both, making cleaning your air ducts part of regular maintenance is a great way to save time and money by preventing future problems in your ductwork. At Ambient Edge, we provide affordable maintenance and installation plans for private and commercial HVAC systems. And with our flat-rate estimates, you’ll never be surprised by any hidden fees.
Why am I having air quality problems in my home?
Even if your air looks clean, it may be carrying dust or particles that are affecting the quality of your air. Contaminants in your air that get past your HVAC system’s filters can cause many issues with your health and wellness, including triggering asthma or allergies, to more serious airborne illnesses like Legionnaires’ disease.
Regular duct cleaning can help prevent such issues and has been correlated with a reduction in risk for Legionnaires’ disease.
Other common contaminants include:
- Dust particles from inside or outside the house
- Pet hair or dander
- Cigarette smoke
- Mold or mold spores
- Paint particles
- Heavy Metals
Regular cleaning of your air ducts, along with basic maintenance for your heating/cooling system, can reduce or eliminate these contaminants. A professional ductwork inspection and cleaning is an easy way to improve air quality and prevent future health problems. And with Ambient Edge’s maintenance plans, you can breathe easy knowing your air is clean.
Why am I having airflow issues in my house?
If you are noticing doors closing on their own or whistling noises in drafty areas, it’s probably a sign that you have poor airflow coming from your air conditioning or heating system. This can be caused by a couple of issues:
- Clogged AC filter. Air flow may be blocked if your AC’s filter hasn’t been changed in a while. Depending on the type of filter you have, you will need to change your AC filters every month or every 3-6 months.
- The condenser unit is blocked. The condenser unit is the part of your central air that sits outside. IT can sometimes become blocked or obstructed by dirt, branches, or other outdoor debris. If you see debris around the compressor that you can remove without opening the unit, try removing the debris.
- Obstructed or broken air ducts. One of the biggest issues preventing clear airflow is a blockage or leak within the air ducts themselves. If your airducts have become clogged or have degraded so that they leak air, it can prevent your home from cooling or heating properly and cause constant dips in air pressure.
If your airflow problems are not solved by clearing your AC filter or condenser unit, we suggest calling a professional to inspect your ductwork for signs of blockage or corrosion.
When do I need my air ducts resealed or repaired?
Contaminants aren’t the only problems faced by central air systems. Sometimes the system itself may have developed faults or gaps that are causing you discomfort and costing money.
If you are experiencing a loss of heat or cooling from your air conditioner or furnace system, it may be because your air ducts are worn, corroded, or were even just installed poorly. But even in a good air duct system, ductwork can corrode or the seals between different sections in your ductwork can degrade over time. This causes air leaks that bleed warm or cool air, raising your energy bill.
Don’t let faulty ductwork affect your physical or financial wellbeing. If you are experiencing air quality issues, talk to an air duct cleaning professional.
