    Here is a useful and fun site: http://energyhog.org/

    It will also give some of the posters something to do rather then comment incorrectly on my posts.

    Have Fun and Happy Holidays and remember to open a window this winter!

    Mold is ALIVE it wont just go away mold produces spores. so small that only static electric filters of true hepas can catch them. MILLIONS OF SPORES EVERYWHERE. Mold needs only two things to live water and food allow me to give examples of each:
    water: there are up to 110 grains of moisture of water in one pound of 70 degree air (thats a lot when your a spore of mold millionths of an inch in size)infinite. it gets higher the warmer you go (warm air is more humid typicallly.

    food:dead skin cells, pollen, dander, drywall dust, smoke reside, oils, fabric particles, ANYTHING that can and does biodegrade is food for mold. these things are so common i duct work and on every surface of your house.

    MOOLD CAN KILL new research says that childern with developing lungs 0-14 years that are exposed to certain strains of mold are 120 times more likely to have ashsma and allergies.(do the reaseach your self you dont belive me)

    THERE IS HOPE we have to do three things at this point get the spores out or dead , kill the living mold and keep it from coming back

    Mold has enimies
    BLEACH
    SUNLIGHT(UV-RADIATION)
    DRY AIR

    I CAN TELL YOU WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW IF YOU TELL ME THE FOLLOWING:
    what kind of furnace ie: where is the filter
    which way is air flow
    how manny btus of approxamate size of ducts supply and return
    size of the house
    geographical location so important for humidity
    kind of house basment,slab,crawl,
    are the grilles painted
    where are the grilles located floor walls cellings

    How adiment you are about keeping this problem from happening again

    How much are you willing to pay to fix it

    Please dont be freaked out im not trying to scare you into duct cleaning i just want you to realize that mold can be a VERY SERIOUS PROBLEM thankyou

    ...I'm not exactly sure what that rant has to do with a dumb-ass web-based game.

    anyhooooo,
    there's a whole lot of half-questions there, with no "answers".
    then again, the answers are really everyday knowledge in the HVAC industry.
