I have a basement that gets humid in the summer when it's hot. Seems to be fine in the winter. The basement shares a heat pump with the main floor. I've used a portable dehumidifier for the last 2 summers. Now I'm finishing the basement and want a built-in system. Is it possible to use the existing heat pump for dehumidification control or should I be looking for a separate dehumidification unit.
The heat pump is an American Standard Heritage 18 with variable speed air handler.
