The September issue of discusses mold and some are of the opinion that it takes too many long-term studies to define the mold danger.

It is probably better to invest the money in duct cleaning, improved filters that are changed regularly to eliminate mold from the filters, improved insulation to prevent condensation, regular maintenance to prevent drain clogs, or elimination of ducts altogether with other types of systems.

One problem that comes from improved insulation and construction is that air exchange in homes is reduced to the point where moisture has to be mechanically vented from new homes and with tightly-sealed ductwork, humidifiers have become unnecessary due to the retained moisture produced by normal activity.
