  • How Mold In Your Air Conditioner Can Affect Indoor Air Quality
    Written by
    During the hot, humid summer months your central air conditioner condenser creates a lot moisture as the warm air blows across the coil. Normally the moisture is collected in the drain pan where it can drain away, but in some cases the water can collect in the system and create mold problems.

    Mold in HVAC Systems

    Mold is commonly found in varying amounts in all central air conditioning systems. Over time small amounts of mold can grow to levels that can decrease air quality and lead to health problems.

    Some of the health problems associated with mold in the home include:
    • Sinus congestion and runny nose
    • Itchy, red, watery eyes
    • Respiratory problems and difficulty breathing
    • Throat irritation
    • Sneezing

    Preventing Mold in Central Air Conditioners

    Drain pans, which can hold standing water for long periods of time, are an ideal location for mold to grow. Pipes that contain bends and curves can collect stagnant water and cause mold to grow. Often when there is mold growing inside the unit it is also visible on the inside of air ducts.

    While it may be easy to identify mold growing on or near your air conditioner, removing it is more complicated than simply cleaning the surfaces where mold is visible, you must find the source of the problem to stop the mold from reoccuring.

    The cause of mold is excess moisture. This is usually a symptom of water leaks and defects in the AC unit. A professional HVAC technician should be able to locate the cause of excess the moisture and recommend solutions.

    Keep the AC Drain Clean

    To avoid mold issues check the condensation drain for clogs regularly. If the drain gets clogged, the standing water can harbor bacteria, which eventually dies and turns into mold. Once you’ve removed the mold from the system, you’ll need to make sure it doesn’t return by regularly maintaining the unit to keep the air ducts clean.
