I have a fair amount of experience with the Aprilaire Whole Home Dehumidifier.  We used it in a TV project on a house that had a severe mold problem, that was sustained by high humidity, and it worked really well.  

I'm not aware that the humidistat and thermostat can be combined, as generally you'd place the humidistat on a lower floor (such as the basement) and the thermostat on the first floor.
