How to Regulate Humidity in Your Home

Furnace Ann Arbor

Fall is coming to Southeast Michigan, and your HVAC system is hard at work adjusting to the changing temperatures. Before winter hits, it’s important to make sure your system is prepared. 

While air conditioners are keeping your home cool, they’re also removing moisture. When AC usage starts to go down in the fall, the relative humidity in your home will increase. 


This will affect different homes in different ways, so the best way to monitor your home’s humidity is to purchase a humidistat. These devices cost only a few dollars and can help you increase the efficiency of your home's HVAC system. Depending on what your humidity levels are at, you’ll be able to adjust your home’s temperature accordingly.


If your home’s relative humidity is constantly above 65% and lowering the temperature isn’t bringing the humidity level down, you might need to install either a variable speed air conditioning unit or an entire house dehumidifier. Both of these options, while more costly than adjusting your thermostat, will help combat your home’s humidity issues and make you more comfortable.

Quick Troubleshooting Tips for a Broken Air Conditioner

air conditioning Ann Arbor

Does your AC not power on?

Does it seem like no cold air is blowing in your house?


If your air conditioner isn’t working, here are some troubleshooting tips:

  1. Double Check Your Thermostat – It might sound obvious, but make sure your thermostat is on and set 5-10 degrees cooler than the current temperature in your home. If nothing is showing on the display, check the batteries!
  2. Check Filter and Outdoor Blockage – Check that the air filter is clean by holding it up to a light. You should be able to see light through it! If your filter isn’t dirty, check the vents on your outside unit for debris or blockage that could be restricting air flow.
  3. Make Sure Power is Connected – Check your main electrical panel to make sure the unit has power running to it. See if any of the breakers have tripped. If they have, reset them. If your breakers are being tripped regularly, it could be a sign of problems with other components!


Having AC Troubles in Your Ann Arbor Home?


If none of these tips fixed your air conditioning, give us a call at 734-424-1560 and one of our technicians will come assist you! Our expert technicians are available 24 hours a day and are committed to high standards of safety, security, and cleanliness.

Why is Ice Building Up on My AC?

air conditioning Ann Arbor

Do you see ice forming on your air conditioner?

Does it sound like chunks of ice are dropping in your AC unit?


Ice on the copper refrigerant lines or outside of your AC unit might be the result of a refrigerant leak, low refrigerant levels, faulty parts, or restricted airflow. Check to see if the fan spins, your filter is clean, and that airflow isn’t blocked. If nothing looks visibly damaged, turn the power off to let the ice thaw and try your AC afterwards. If you suspect a refrigerant leak or malfunctioning evaporator coil, keep the power off and call a technician!

What is the RGF?

indoor air quality Ann Arbor


The REME HALO® is an “active” solution that neutralizes SARS-CoV-2 within the occupied space, eliminating the need for virus particles to travel through the HVAC system filters or UV air purification system.

Every time a hydro peroxide molecule comes into contact with contaminants, it quickly breaks them down and destroys them, restoring the air to its clean, natural state. The system also uses positive and negative ions to charge the air, causing dust, dander and pollen to stick together, making your existing air filter equipment more efficient at capturing these particles.
