Mold and mildew can cause major problems if they are allowed to spread, especially when it comes to your central air conditioning system. Unfortunately, these microscopic organisms can grow quickly. Homeowners must be vigilant about preventing this. If mold and mildew grow inside the ducts of your air conditioning system, it can cause the AC to malfunction. It can also lead to mold and mildew growing throughout your home. Luckily, there are steps that you can take to avoid this. Here are tips for preventing mold and mildew growth inside an air conditioner.
How to Prevent Mold Growth in Your Air Conditioner
Tip #1. Run your AC frequently. Using it on a regular basis will keep your home from becoming excessively warm or humid. This will prevent mold and mildew from spreading.
Tip #2. Have a contractor inspect your AC. An experienced HVAC technician can check your AC for signs of mold and mildew. They can also determine if your air conditioner is the ideal size for your home. An AC that is too big or too small will be ineffective.
Tip #3. Clean your AC drain line regularly. It is especially important to clean the air ducts. Regular cleaning will remove any mildew and mold that have accumulated and prevent it from spreading further. Changing the filter regularly is important as well.
