Mold Growth in Winter
Just because it’s cold outside does not mean mold stops growing inside your home. Mold needs moisture to grow. Mold likes warmer temperatures and your home in the winter is warm and inviting, a perfect place for mold to grow. Your furnace runs warm air through your ducts. Your ducts and HVAC System may be harboring mold.
Although your air conditioner may not be running, your furnace most likely is and it uses the same duct system in which mold can grow. All mold needs to grow is a temperature above 60 degrees. Is your home warmer than 60 degrees? Closing your home to the outside air means that bad mold inside cannot escape and dry out.
