As many of you have spent at least one summer here in the lowcountry, you know just how intense the humidity can be. The Gulf of Mexico is consistently pushing moist air inland and when combined with the constant moisture from the coast, it can make walking outside feel like stepping into a rainforest. As South Carolina reaches peak humidity in July and August, aside from being uncomfortable, it can also be highly problematic for your home.
This muggy climate is perfect for the growth of mold just about anywhere it can take hold, especially in dark places like the inside of your HVAC system. When cold air moves through the warm ducts of your system, water droplets accumulate becoming warm when the system stops running. This becomes the ideal environment for mold spores to take hold and grow.
Mold can grow at an alarming rate in such a place, making those in your home sick without ever being identified. As a result, your air quality can suffer dramatically as mold inevitably spreads rapidly through a forced-air HVAC system.
