The only residential application I have ever come across where some sort of auxiliary mechanical dehumidification was needed was in situations where there was some sort of water source that could not be controlled. In one such situation the water table of the house was at the bottom of the basements concrete floor. In that case, the properly sized and properly operating cooling system ran constantly without being able to reduce the temperature in the home because it was spending 80% of it's energy on dehumidification. If I remember correctly, it was operating at an average 6 degree DT at a psc motor setting of 400 cfm per ton.Government is a disease......masquerading as its own cureEcclesiastes 10:2 NIV

What a great idea!
So an electronic remote bulb stat controlling an either/or wired fan speed relay for humidity control seems like it would be the ticket.
I was just thinking recently that with an oversized system reduced air flow would not only increase humidity removal but would also reduce compressor capacity as the suction pressure fell.
