Why is mold from air conditioning harmful to your health?

Share Post:

Mold from air conditioning systems often develops from dampness in and around an air diffuser as a result of condensation. Condensation on a diffuser can be the result of a significant difference in temperatures between the cold air coming from the air conditioning unit and warmer air in the room due to warm weather. Metal diffusers are highly susceptible to that kind of temperature change and therefore tend to develop condensation in warm weather conditions.

Mold from air conditioning systems can pose a serious threat to your health. When air conditioning units are not properly maintained, or as a result of condensation, mold can grow and spread throughout the system, releasing spores into the air you breathe. Exposure to mold spores can lead to a range of health problems, including allergies, respiratory issues, and infections.

Inhaling mold spores can irritate the eyes, nose, and throat, causing sneezing, coughing, and wheezing. For individuals with asthma, mold exposure can trigger asthma attacks, leading to shortness of breath and chest tightness. Long-term mold exposure can also cause more serious health problems, including chronic bronchitis and other respiratory infections.

It’s important to take steps to prevent mold growth in your air conditioning system. If you suspect mold is present, it’s best to seek professional help to safely remove it and improve the air quality in your home or workplace.

INVI’s non-metal air diffusers are made from a composite material and have up to 95% less chance for condensation to occur on them than metal grilles, whether steel or aluminum. That means 95% less chance of any kind of dampness damage like water droplets, cracks, or god forbid mold.
