What is Mold?
Mold is a type of fungus. These small organisms can be black, white, orange, green, or purple and live almost anywhere indoors and outside including in your AC unit. Mold needs two things in order to grow: moisture and an organic food source. Molds reproduce through lightweight spores that travel through the air.
What Causes Mold in the Air Duct/Ductwork of Your Orange Park Home?
Oversized AC Unit
If your AC unit is oversized for the space you have, then it can cause mold in air ducts. Larger units can cool small spaces too quickly and turn off before dehumidifying the air, leading to excess moisture.
AC Set in Low Temperature
Setting AC at a very low temperature can sometimes lead to mold around the vents. When the cool air from the vents meets the warm air in the room, the temperature difference can cause moisture in the air to condense on surfaces in and around the vents.
If your ducts have leaks that let in warm air, the difference between the cold air in the ducts and warm air in the walls can cause moisture to condense on the ducts, giving mold a perfect environment to grow.
Health Risks of Mold
Molds can cause a huge range of health hazards including nasal stuffiness, throat irritation, coughing or wheezing, eye irritation, or, in some cases, skin irritation. People with mold allergies may have more severe reactions.
