Is this available, Thermostat ?

I'm located on the Texas Gulf Coast.
During these months of cold(45 deg) & raining, the inside humidity gets high.
I have a central air & heat(gas)system.

I am interested in a thermostat that will run the a/c condenser, in the heat mode,
( as in the way an Automotive system works, in the Defrost mode) to remove the water vapor in the air.

Is there any such thing ?
Thanks
Mike

No, you wouldn't want to run the A/C at the same time as the gas furnace running.

I'd suggest looking at a whole house dehumidifier if you need humidity control.

its called ventilation......... It can be used to dehumidify, but it is a waste of good heat to use on outside air.

Ok, thanks for the reply's
The ventilation idea really doesn't work, when the weather is like this

I bought a 30 pint portable Dehumidifier, from Am---n.
About $230, delivered,
So far is is solving my problem.
It removes about a quart & a half of water a day.
& the house feels better.
With out running the A/C for a while, then turning the Heat back on.
So, it works for Me
