I have a single level house on slab 1200 sq. ft. in Texas.

I have a single level house on slab 1200 sq. ft. in Texas. Humidity has been a problem since the summer began. My walls are foamed and the attic has radiant barrier with fiberglass on attic floor. My unit is a 3 Ton Carrier. I had had a few Techs come out and verified my unit was working good but was a little oversized. My A/C runs between 12 to 16 hours a day causing a high electric bill. No one has had a solution to solve my humidity problem other than install a dehumidifier. My humidity w/o a portable dehumidifier stays around 63%.I have the option of turning my porch into a sun room if that helps my problem.

I have a Friedrich D50BP dehumidifier with built-in drain

I have a Friedrich D50BP dehumidifier with built-in drain pump that has worked well until last week. Now the drain pump isn't working, and I have to empty the water bucket daily. The included drain hose is still properly inserted, and drains to a location that is three feet higher than the machine, but only one foot away. I don't want to drain the water bucket daily. Any ideas for how to restore the automatic drain pumping, or do I need to replace the machine?

I have a Carrier Infinity system. I have a fluke infrared temperature reader, and my thermostat housing on the top part is 78F, when the rest of the house is 74-75F. It seems that the thermostat is not gauging the temperature correctly.

I have a dehumidifier Gree Fellini Model no. 13-06030. I took out the filter, cleaned it, put it back and it now no longer works. Everything appears to be normal, and it starts correctly but cuts out after about 8 minutes.
