Everyone knows that mold can grow in your house, and exposure to it can lead to sickness. But did you realize that mold can also grow inside of air conditioning systems, spreading through the very air you breathe? Whether you have a single air conditioning unit or a full ventilation system, hazardous mold can make itself a home and cause significant problems. Many modern homes have a full HVAC (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning) system, which makes it all the easier for mold to become a problem because once it infiltrates one system, it spreads through the ducts to everything else.
If you suspect that your air conditioning unit may contain mold, you should begin by checking whatever parts of the unit are visible or otherwise easy to access, including the evaporator coils and filter. However, take note that these parts being clean doesn’t necessarily mean that you’re free of mold. Ducts, ventilation shafts, and other less easily visible areas may hide mold.
Depending on the age of the air conditioning system, mold in your ac ducts and air handling unit can at times be present. This should not be a surprise since an air conditioning system is a relatively wet environment. When moisture is coupled with dust and other nutrient sources that accumulate within the system over time, mold growth will often occur, particularly inside the ac unit and supply air duct plenum.
