Hi All,

This is a picture inside of my Carrier Performance Air Handler located in the attic. I have been waking up with a swollen face and congestion this summer. Looks like a petri dish.

I suspect moisture is being blown off the coil during the cooling cycle and the mold is growing on anything that is not metal. The coil looks fine though a little rusty on the galvanized frame supporting the tubes.

I also notice there is no on/off fan delay would having a longer off delay dry out this area?

I believe a UV light would degrade the motor wires. Though I could probably have them cased in metal conduit. The wires that is.

Moving the unit is the last resort. It's an old house.

Any suggestions?
