Humidity is a problem in many areas. The best way to control excessive humidity is to have a system that runs longer at lower speeds. Variable-speed air-handling equipment runs at very low speeds, which keeps the air circulating against the cooling coil and removes much more moisture than conventional systems. At these low speeds, the variable-speed motor also uses much less electricity than conventional motors.
A two-stage outdoor air conditioning unit will operate at a low speed, removing more moisture and allowing greater comfort than a single-stage air conditioning unit.
For additional dehumidification, you may want to consider a stand-alone whole-house dehumidifier. These can be tied directly into your existing duct system. Humidity problems may also arise from humid air being sucked into your home via a vented/leaky crawl space. We can minimize this by sealing the crawl space and installing a dehumidifier specifically for that area. Not only will it lower humidity, it will help prevent the infiltration of dust and dirt from the crawlspace entering your home.
