Insulated A/C register - mold


I have an insulated a/c register that has black mold/mildew at the bottom couple inches of the insulation and surrounding metal near the vent opening - if I replace the register, how do I prevent this from reoccurring?

pictures would help and really are necessary for this forum to do its magic.

without pictures, its just a wild guess, but I would say that somehow water is available to the mold. Mold dont grow without water and food. So eliminate those things and your mold goes away. A picture would help the forum members guide you in tracking down the food and water.

There sealed combustion 80% efficient furnaces also.

OP, bring in outdoor air for combustion directly to the furnace is a plus. It help to prevent your house from getting as dry in the winter.
