I have a raised cottage in New Orleans with a slab addition of 2 rooms to the back of the house. After Hurricane Katrina, I was able to have the house wrapped, put on new siding, hurricane windows and shutters and spray foamed the raised portion under the house. The 4 ton A/C unit was replaced last year with I believe a 2.5 unit with a dehumidifier (the square footage is just over 1,300). There is insullation in the attic (not foamed). I still see high humidity readings in the house (over 50). Is there anything I can do to regulate this problem?

This humidification problem is a common one experienced by many building owners around the country. To solve it you have to understand a little bit more about how de-humidification works.
