We have a home in Florida, go north in the summer,and have the temp set at 78. We get high humidity and I want to install a humidistat to control the humidity without having to lower the temp. How do I do the wiring?

Thank you for your question. Unfortunately, I will not be able to provide any specific information without the model number of the dehumidifier and also the type and model of the thermostat. This could be difficult without actually seeing what is there now and I would recommend having a technician check this, to be able to see and to determine what will need to be done. I'm attaching a site you can access, to have a tech come out. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services . If you would like more assistance, reply to this thread and please include the model numbers and I will be glad to assist you further.
Scott D...The instructions mention wiring in series or parallel. Your instructions are for parallel. Is that the preferable way when we are away so the temp (cooling) doesn't need to be set to low? Also, do you make the hook up with small wire nuts or direct to the screws on the thermostat? I wish I could give you 10 stars as I really appreeciate the help.
Hi Scott. I found the Ranco J10-809 dehumid. controller that at one time was hooked up but some technician took it off. Anyway, there are no wires attached just 2 lugs for hooking on wires. Now to the issue. I found an instruction sheet on the web but as I look at it the #1 (outside) lug on the controller there is a "red" spot painted under the lug. When I look at the diagram the #1 (outside) lug shows as going to the yellow on the thermostat and the #2 (inside) lug shows going to the red on the thermostat. Should I ignore the red dot and hook the red to the #2 lug and the black to the #1?
