Humididtat with HVAC

topaz54November 28, 2012

I have a condo in Florida that is used sparingly.
I would like to know if it is possible to use a humidistat to control the humidity by activating the air conditioning. I have heard this can be done but none of the products that are recommended for this show wiring for this. Anyone know if this id possible and how to wire it? I would only need this to de-humidify.

Have you considered replacing your current thermostat with one that can control humidity? Search for Honeywell model TH8321 (VisionPRO). You can enable dehumdiification control, and it will try to maintain a humidity set point (say 50%) when in cooling mode. It does this by overcooling 1, 2, or 3 degrees below the set temperature. This may be a better alternative than wiring up a separate humidistat.
