Signs of Mold in your HVAC or ductwork
- A strong mildew-like or musty smell throughout the house or at least in a few adjacent rooms.
- Your nose, throat, and eyes feel irritated when you switch on the air conditioning or step inside an air-conditioned room.
- You are experiencing allergic symptoms including a runny nose, rashes, and watering eyes.
- You or your family is suffering from unexplainable headaches that go away when you step outside.
- You feel nausea, fatigue, and dizziness only when you are home.
- You can see the mold growing within the intake vents and around the air ducts and drip pans.
Therefore, if you live in a warm climate and your home smells musty all the time, you have the perfect reason to suspect a mold infestation within the central air conditioning system. You should never wait for the visible signs of infestation to manifest before taking action. You may not be able to see specific sections of your HVAC ductwork from the outside. In that case, you should ask for professional help.
What causes mold to grow in an HVAC system and air ducts?
Mold can grow in an HVAC system and air ducts due to a combination of factors such as moisture, humidity, and poor ventilation. HVAC systems circulate air throughout a building, and if moisture or humidity levels are high, it can create a breeding ground for mold to thrive. The air ducts can also accumulate dirt, dust, and other debris, which can trap moisture and create a favorable environment for mold growth. Moreover, if an HVAC system is not regularly inspected and maintained, it can lead to mold growth, which can cause a range of health hazards for homeowners. Regular inspection and maintenance, along with proper ventilation and moisture control, are essential in preventing mold growth in HVAC systems and air ducts.
Don’t leave things to chance
According to the U.S. EPA, you should routinely inspect your HVAC systems, not just for mold, but for moisture. Look at drain and condensate pans to make sure they are draining properly. If they are clogged, the moisture that accumulates will become a mold factory.
