Prevent Mold From Developing In Your Air Ducts

Why Is There Water in My Air Ducts?

Having water in your air ducts can lead to mold and mildew issues, and it may also be a symptom of a more serious underlying problem. So we often get asked questions like, “Why is there water in my air ducts?”

There are several possible reasons for the presence of moisture in your air ducts, and these reasons will lead you to finding various solutions on how to keep water out of your air ducts in the first place.

  1. You have too much humidity in your crawlspace or attic, and this leads to condensation inside and outside the ductwork. If this is the problem, you’re going to need a humidifier.
  2. The moisture may also be caused by low duct temperature. During the heating months, your unheated rooms may have unused air-conditioning ducts that can collect moisture. To prevent this, you need to seal off these ducts. You can also insulate the ducts and circulate warm air through these ducts to prevent condensation.
  3. You may also just have a leak somewhere. The leak can be in your roof, your water-pipes, in your clothes-dryer, or in your furnace venting system. The vents in your bathroom and in your cook range may be leaking too. The simple solution to having water in your ducts is to find these leaks and then fix them right away.
