When it’s time for fall cleaning, it’s worth your time to have your airways cleaned out in case of mold growth. Mold is a big fan of warm and sticky weather because that’s where it thrives the best. Your air conditioner is one of your home’s best defenses when it comes to preventing mold growth in your home!A kitchen that's clean and full of clean air, after having Intek come and clean out the air ducts.

If it was an especially hot or humid summer and your air conditioner struggled to keep up, or even if was a normal summer, cleaning your air vents will have you breathing easier this winter. Make your fall cleaning easier by calling the experts.

How an Air Conditioner Helps

The basic job of an air conditioner is to keep your home at a set temperature, which usually includes reducing the humidity in the air. Especially during humid South Dakota summers, it’s helpful to purchase an air conditioner that includes enhanced moisture removal.

Mold thrives in moist, humid places. Be sure to lower your risk of mold growth by investing in an air conditioner that’s powerful enough to lower the temperature of your whole home.

Keep in mind that the same temperature range that you may prefer your home to be set at is actually the same temperature range in which mold may thrive: 60-80 degrees Fahrenheit, according to the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services.

That’s why it’s important to have an air conditioner that can properly handle the humidity in the air too. The more humid your air, the more likely it is that mold growth is a possibility.
