Excess humidity - HVAC system too large
So, My AC system died last spring, and I was prepping to put new windows (impact resistant, low e) in my house... My house is approx 2200 sq.ft in Florida, south of Tampa... Zone 2A
I had a 4 ton system, and knew that would be too big as a replacement, but my HVAC tech replaced it with what was here and said he could tune it... Now my house averages 55%rh or higher... Up into mid 66-67...
I talked to him about it and he wants to bring some attic air into the return so it will run longer... I think that adding a whole house dehumidifier, like the Williams air sponge, or April Aire would be the best solution... Any feedback??
