Ozone generators

From: Michael Trinkley <chicora>

Lydia Egunnike inquires about the installation of ozone generators
in ductwork--a recommendation by her HVAC engineers to deal with an
on-going mold problem in the ducts.

Although I'm not familiar with Australian issues, the last time I
checked the recommendation for ozone levels offered by the Library
of Congress here in the States was about 0.94 ppb--less than the
levels proposed. But more importantly, I would suggest that the
issue of high RH (which is likely the cause of the mold in the first
place) be dealt with. Get rid of the conditions promoting the mold
and the odds are good that you get rid of the mold (albeit you may
need to either clean the duct work or perhaps even replace some
portions if you internal duct liners). Best,
