Looking for feedback on the Humiditrol feature. Looking to add that to a system in North Florida. Don't really have a humidity problem, so I am trying to figure out if it is worth the extra money.

My main point that homes that are dry during cool wet weather are not getting ideal fresh air to purge indoor pollutants and renew oxygen. If you going to correct the fresh air ventilation problem, the reheat a/c will cost a considerable of energy to maintain 50%RH. There are devices that remove 8-5 lbs. of moisture per KW on the market today. This 50%-75% less energy. The alternative would be a ventilating dehumidifier. They optimize humidity control by removing the moisture before the moisture mixes with the dry air in the home. The dehu also dries the a/c ducts and coil enough to prevent mold growth. High eff. dehus can be connected to ducts or free standing. Check my post for more info. Regards TBBear 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"
