    How likely is it that my coil will freeze up as my contractor says if the air handler drops the fan speed during a dehumidify cycle? Should I just go ahead and demand for him to hook up the dehumidify function of the air handler?
    Not likely at all,IF the duct system is sized properly,IF not then could be.

    The interesting thing is that for the thermostat I have (ecobee), they only show a wiring diagram where the Dhum is utilized under a section called "Dual Stage Furnace with Dehumidifier and Two Stage Heat Pump"

    Maybe this is where the contractor got the idea that you cannot dehumidify safely with a one stage heat pump.

    I'm sure you are right but I already blew away $300 on this ecobee thermostat after reading many raving reviews about it online.
