Whatever you do, keep in mind that if you do not seal off the outside air, you will be allowing literally gallons of water back in if windows are left open. A dehumidifier will dry the air nicely, but it also gives off heat. An AC unit, even a window unit, will dry the air and cool it too. We have both a dehumidifier and medium sized window AC unit (rated for about 600 sq ft I think) to keep our basement both cool and dry when it gets hot and humid around here. And when it gets dry I open all windows and will even put a fan in the window to bring fresh air in. But I would imagine in AL it does not get dry too often in the summer.
