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??

We plan to use Obdyke Hydrogap between the hardie board siding and the Zip wall. Will that be an adequate drainage plane? or are furring strips also needed?
