AC and Dehumidifier?
So we have been having issues with moisture in our basement. We live in a Baltimore row-home and the moisture caused a bit of mold on two cloth items and a bit on some cardboard. So no huge problems yet.
I recently bought a dehumidifier and it's been running in the basement. Additionally, there is one AC vent in the basement and I was considering adding a second vent into the ducting.
The theoretical question is whether it will be more efficient (read cheaper) to have the AC work a little harder by having a second duct in the basement in addition to the dehumidifier OR to just let the dehumidifier work by itself.
