Is Your HVAC Responsible For Mold Misery?


Not only does an air conditioning unit cool your home, but it is also responsible for removing mold-producing moisture from the air. This task is hugely important, as studies show that poorly maintained HVAC systems may be sources of serious health risks. In fact, mold can exacerbate a number of issues, including allergic reactions like wheezing, watery eyes, rashes, and asthma. In some cases, mold can even be toxic to you and your loved ones. Professional HVAC maintenance is the best way to reduce mold and preserve your family’s health throughout the year.

How Mold Infestations Occur

Mold infestations occur when the amount of spores in the air increases beyond normal levels. Air conditioners work by ventilating your rooms. Because the air ducts supply and return airflow to the home, recycled air can transport mold culture to different areas of the property.

A properly designed, installed, and maintained air conditioning system should not cause mold to grow in the home. However, when a unit is improperly sized or installed, mold is a possibility. If a system is the wrong size for your home, there’s a chance that it will cool the house too quickly without removing sufficient moisture from the air. The result is a home that feels cold and clammy rather than pleasantly cool. Additionally, mold overgrowth can result from improper installation, water drainage issues, and a lack of regular maintenance.

While mold may seem like a small problem, the fact is that it can cause serious issues in the home. Not only is mold growth unhealthy for buildings, but it also affects the quality of air your family is breathing. To protect your family, it’s a good idea to arrange for regular air quality evaluations from the Del-Air team.

This was my first experience with Del-Air and they were prompt, professional, and knowledgeable. They were able to get me in on the same day for a maintenance visit, which I wasn’t expecting but very much appreciated. The office staff was pleasant and so was the technician that came out to service my air conditioners. Thanks…
