What ac hacker said. Use your 1 ton unit to be a big dehumidifier. Retrofitting a conventional electric dryer would be simple. Use the dryer blower as is to move air. Rig the condenser upstream from the electric heating element and let it find its way to the clothes. Rig the evaporator downwind from the blower, and recirculate the exhaust air back towards the condenser. The waste heat generated by the compressor will concentrate in the air loop and aid the evaporation process.
