Humidor in the North East
Hi All, I have searched the archives, and gotten some info but not exactly what I was looking for. I am pretty much a nubie (less than a year) and now have 2 humidors. The first was the 20 ct that came with Ccom introductory offer, the second is a 75 count that I am now seasoning before its first use. Everything was great (holding Rh of 68%) until the Vermont winter kicked in, now I am lucky if I can keep it above 63%. I currently have the 20 ct full of gars and have two pillows in there but can't top 63, maybe 65.
I purchased a XiKAR 100 count puck with beads and the 70% PG solution for the new humi and hope that does the trick. When I started noticing the problem I did reseason it but that did not last long. I am also running a salt test on my hygrometer as I write this just to rule that out also. I suspect that my problem is that it is cold and dry outside and I am just going to have to overboost the humidity in the winter.
Any help appreciated.
