Install central air with particular attention paid to installing ducts in any area of the location that has had particular moisture and mold issues in past years.
Correctly sized central air will both keep yourself and other occupants cool, as well as keeping the humidity low everywhere the a/c ducts reach with good air flow out and return air back.
When ducting is installed, don't forget return air ducts. You want the system to have a continued flow of air into and return air out of - the affected area.
Sure, spend a few $$$$$$$$$$$ now, but then you don't have to worry about dehumidifiers and other similar issues.

I've had a Frigidaire 70pint in my basement for over ten years now. Granted it only works for 6 months of the year but it keeps chooching. Picked up a second one 2 years ago for my shop and it's exhibited no strange behavior.
I believe they might be like freezers and fridges in that you need to let them sit upright for a day or so before turning them on or you risk internal damage.

Why-not-do -the- air-conditioner-thing!
Probably more effective and more durable, and a somwehat cooler celler in summer.....

Looks like my 1-year old Honeywell TK70WKN has died also, thankfully it has a 5-year warranty.

|Baseline||My dehumidifier must be an anomaly or all dehumidifiers. It is a $200 old Whilpool that is at least 15 yers old. I'm surprised it has kept working, but it does. One thing I always do is take it apart and clean off the evaporator coils on both sides each year.|
