The Connection Between Mold & Your HVAC System, ,

Your HVAC system does much more than keep you comfortable. It is an essential part of your home’s ventilation system. For this reason, an inefficient HVAC system can lead to mold growth through your home. By learning more about the connection between HVAC performance and mold growth, you’ll understand how important it is to have a well-maintained and high-quality system.

Guide to Your HVAC System’s Role in Controlling Mold

How Mold Grows

Mold requires four factors to grow: moisture, warmth, oxygen and organic matter for sustenance. This is why mold thrives best in dark areas that are not well-ventilated. Every home has a certain number of spores ever present in the air, so any time these four things are all present the spores will begin to grow on your walls. Because you cannot control the presence of oxygen and the fact that your home is made of organic materials, you need to control the moisture instead. Good ventilation is essential to keeping all the surfaces of your home clean and dry.

Why Your HVAC System Helps

hvac-systemEvery room in your home needs good ventilation to stay dry. An inefficient air conditioning system won’t keep air moving as it should. Mold can grow hidden in the ducts, in bathrooms, and in other dark corners of the home. An efficient ductless system will keep air moving and all the surfaces dry so the spores cannot catch. The filters in the system will remove most of the mold spores before sending the air into the home, which improves your air quality as well.
