    I see. So in cool/wet weather you run the AC to dehumidify and just add a heat source to keep the temp up. Or as Teddy Bear suggests, plug in a dehumidifier and leave both (heat and AC) off.

    Living just outside Chicago we have more of a "hot-wet" summer - though surely not as bad as those in the south and gulf regions. It seems to be...

    And this would apply to my Ameristar condensing unit as well? Didn't know it had a crankcase or a heater - thought that was just in heat pumps....Very interesting!

    You may think me thick in the skull, but why would you be running the AC in the cold? Did I miss something?

    Should I turn off the gas at the manual shut off at the end of heating season? What about the water line to the humidifier? Or just leave them both on year round?
