    If there is a window in the garage a window unit may help the situation after fixing some of the leakage problems.

    You need a straight simple high efficiency dehumidifier with enough capacity to handle the space with a dehumidistat that operates automatically. These a/c remove about 2 pints per KWH and are crude when it comes to dehumidification. High efficiency dehus like the Santa Fe Advance !! remove 5-6 pints per KWH and fully automatic with full defrost. This +50%saving in dehumidification cost which will save $30 per month in operating cost. Durability is the next issue.
    Long term, you will be happier with equipment designed for the job.
    None the less, keep us posted. Life is a learning experience.

    Bear Rules: Keep our home <50% RH summer, controls mites/mold and very comfortable.
    Provide 60-100 cfm of fresh air when occupied to purge indoor pollutants and keep window dry during cold weather. T-stat setup/setback +8 hrs. saves energy
    Use +Merv 10 air filter. -Don't forget the "Golden Rule"

    Heat it with an Anthracite coal stove. No kidding! That's what I do. The balance of my house is heated too.
