Clearing the Air: The Silent Danger of Mould in Your Air Conditioner System

Share This Post

Have you noticed any unusual odors from your air conditioning system? Do you or your family members experience more allergies or respiratory issues indoors? Mould in air conditioning systems poses health risks and compromises indoor air quality. Mould thrives in damp environments, making air conditioners an ideal breeding ground.


Debunking Myths about Air Conditioners and Mould


Contrary to popular belief, air conditioners themselves are not the primary source of mould growth. Instead, they draw in mould spores from their surroundings, where they find a breeding ground in the accumulated biofilm of dust and dirt within the unit. Over time, these spores can multiply and thrive, leading to a potential explosion of mould growth within the air conditioner.


The Negative Health Impacts of Mould


While it may seem harmless at first glance, mould can wreak havoc on respiratory health, triggering allergies, asthma attacks, mycotoxicosis, fungal infections, hypersensitivity pneumonitis, irritation, and other respiratory issues. These health effects are often caused by the mould itself, its spores, or the mycotoxins it produces, and they are most commonly observed in indoor settings.


How to Banish Mould from Your Air Conditioning System?


One of the most effective ways to keep your air conditioning system free from mould is through regular cleaning and frequent maintenance. While cleaning your air filters is basic maintenance, it’s highly recommended to have preventative maintenance performed on the unit’s internal components, such as the coil, barrel fan, and drain, by a certified technician who uses equipment specifically designed to clean AC units.
