Reducing humidity with variable speed blower
Hi, I'm in a new home with a variable speed furnace but builder grade AC compressor. I'm the southeast, so the humidity is high right now on the outside and I'm not seeing the humidity in the home ever drop below 50% even with the AC running. Any advice on how to get better dehumidification or what to check for? From a quick internet search, I am able to glean that possible issues could be (1) poor seals in ductwork where outdoor air is being pulled in or (2) blower speed needs to be reduced to allow air to move more slowly over coils. Does this sound right and is there anything else I could look for?
