    Because the APR Control allows the system to operate down to 35% of the total capacity, and permits the evaporator coil to stay below the dew point in dehumidifying mode, the system will keep the humidity levels low without the addition of electric reheat.

    great, but it also cools the airstream and overcools the room. the effect rawal has is constant compressor operation while in dehum mode. I have 23 medical buildings with rawal under contract. the engineers believed this too. it doesn't work out that way, it results in cold dry spaces. we have gone and retrofitted some with electric reheat, and more are on order.

    the electric reheat isn't for humidity control, its for space temp.

    Yes after you set off the bouncers car alarm. Wait for him to run out, sneak inside behind him and lock the door behind you.

    Ok, I get your point, but the op was asking about a basement not a medical building.

    I've been using Carrier handbook Volume 1 and another book written by Edward G. Pita for understanding psychrometrics. I'll read this in detail as well. Thanks for sharing!

    The place will be used for furniture storage. So the cooling load will remain constant as their are no electrical appliances, people or any other sources which may fluctuate the cooling load. Yes, will use a draw through unit. Will keep the reheat suggestion in mind, thanks!

    With furniture storage, and obviously we don't know where you are located, is there any issue with the space becoming too dry? For example, in winter if you are just heating and using a bit of outside air/infiltration, you could see low humidity in the space in cold climates. Furniture doesn't like that much, especially if good wood stuff. You might consider adding some moisture back in the space. If in warm climate, it doesn't matter.
