What Causes Mold in Air Duct (HVAC)?

In a humid New Jersey climate, air ducts are among the most common places to find mold. It has a lot to do with the fact that cooling of humid air often produces a lot of excessive moisture, such as condensation on cooling coils, collecting in dripping pans and so on. When this moisture gets in contact with dust and particles for a prolonged period of time, it’s a surefire recipe for a mold disaster.

Among the most common causes of air duct mold are:

  • Dust, dirt, debris and pet hair collected in the vent
  • Clogged air duct filters
  • Using basic fiberglass filters in houses with pets and other sources of micro-particles
  • Leaks around duct joints in attics
  • Wetted fiberglass-lined ductwork surfaces
  • Condensation on metal parts of HVAC units
  • Improper use or absence of Drain Pans
  • Damaged or missing foil vapor barrier
  • Damaged or missing air duct insulation
  • Poor initial installation of the air duct system
  • Overly humid New Jersey environment
  • Improper mixing of outside and inside air
  • Saturated air coming from air conditioner evaporator
  • Weak (slow) air flow coming out of the grill
  • Improper AC unit size

Where does Mold Grow in the Air Ducts?

In air ducts (HVAC) you can find mold growing on:

  • On air filters
  • On Insulation
  • On duct lining
  • On dust, dirt collected on walls, grills etc
  • On pet particles, dead skin cells, etc
  • On drywall compound left from construction

We have written a helpful guide on how you can remove mold from your air duct.

How Dangerous Air Duct Mold Really Is?

Mold in air ducts can pose a serious threat to your health. Unlike cases where mold grows in isolated areas such as attic and crawl space, air duct mold has a potential to quickly spread mold contamination throughout the rest of your house, turning it in a health hazard.

If you start to develop mold symptoms and suspect you’ve got mold in your HVAC system, it is important to have a professional mold inspector thoroughly check your ducts as well as the rest of your house to make sure you don’t have a mold contamination on your hands.
