Ever notice mold coming from your air conditioner vents? It may be causing health issues for you and your family. Although this is a common problem, thankfully it is easy to clean and get rid of. This spring, take a trip around your home to check all of your air vents to ensure you don’t have mold growing in un-welcomed areas.
Although it is only spring time now, summer is right around the corner and nearing quickly, which means it’s the perfect time to be checking and updating our air conditioning systems in preparation for the upcoming hot and humid months that lay ahead. Air conditioning systems do a wonderful job of removing the humidity of the summer heat, but the damp air mixed with dust particles, germs, and debris can build up in your system. You may not have connected the dots beforehand, but this mold can cause respiratory and breathing issues for you and your family.
Rid Your AC of Mold
Don’t just clean out the mold, make sure that the mold is completely removed. Make sure to clean all ducts, the evaporator, and blower to ensure you’ve removed all of it. Once the mold is gone, it’s time to install the right filter. By using a good quality pleated filter, you will stop a good amount of dust and debris particles from getting through.
Once you’ve replaced the filter in your air conditioning system, it is always a good idea to install an APCO air purifier to further improve the air quality in your home. By installing an APCO air purifier, the mold, bacteria, and viruses in the air will be eliminated causing less illness due to allergies and illness.
