Default Evaporator coil drier for A/C

Anyone tried setting one up? The coil itself holds about a pound of water per ton of cooling capacity and once it builds up to this capacity, further condensation is drained down the pipe.

As you get into evening hours and AC no longer needs to run, the water just evaporates back out into the conditioned space not to mention keeping everything inside the ducting very humid.

A simple setup that can air circulate outdoor air just within the air handler would avoid the problems associated with coil being wet all night long at room temperature as well as re-evaporation such as mold and bacteria growth in the AHU.

it would be easy to implement on a package unit, but needs a two pipe dryer vent like setup for a split unit.
