Humidity Problem, could the blower be too strong?

I just had someone work on my furnace a couple of months ago to replace a f ilter box. They had lots of trouble and I think they tried to accommodate for something by changing the blower speed. The result was that our home w ent from 40% range of humidity levels to 60% + levels. it's horrible in th ere. Two separate A/C companies cannot find the problem. Everything look s good.
From what I read, it's possible that the unit is not running long enough to rid of humidity. And by lowering the blower speed it might be able to do t hat. Any ideas? I wish I had taken photos prior to the work that was don e. But after I look at the current wiring and compare that to the owners m anual, it almost looks incorrectly wired. I appreciate any advice.

Are you in heating season, or AC season?

Typically the fan speed for the ac is the high setting. If you have a sing le speed, basic ac then during the spring and fall there is some risk of th e unit not running long enough to lower the humidity. That's just the natu re of single speed systems. If you want better control you should probably look at a variable or two speed unit. Single speed units have to be sized to accommodate the summer loads and that makes them too big during spring and fall. That problem will be more noticeable in the case of springs that are unusually wet and cool for prolonged periods.
