Do You Have Mold in Your AC? Look For These Symptoms

By April 18, 2023May 5th, 2023No Comments

There are several symptoms you can look for to determine if you have mold in your AC system. Here are some common ones:

  1. A musty odor: If you notice a persistent musty odor coming from your air conditioning system, it could be a sign of mold growth. This odor may be more noticeable when your AC system is running.
  2. Allergy symptoms: Mold spores can cause allergic reactions in some people. If you or members of your household are experiencing allergy symptoms like sneezing, coughing, or itchy eyes when your AC system is running, it could be a sign of mold.
  3. Visible mold growth: In some cases, you may be able to see mold growing on the inside of your AC system. Check your air conditioning unit’s air filter and ducts for signs of mold growth.
  4. Moisture or water damage: Mold needs moisture to grow, so if you have water damage or a leak in your AC system, it could lead to mold growth. Look for signs of moisture or water damage around your AC unit.

If you suspect that you have mold in your AC system, it’s important to address the issue promptly. Mold can cause health problems and damage to your home if left untreated.
