Wineador temps

dirtdudedirtdude AZPosts: 5,296 ✭✭✭✭✭
I noticed the last couple weeks my wineador temps have jumped from mid 60's to mid 70's, pulled the covers and the fans are all working and dust free. Originally started using this as beetle prevention as the house runs around 80 in the summers but since I started freezing not so much worried about beetles. RH has remained stable.

Are there any concerns with a mid 70's temp

    Mid 70s should be ok. The wineador won't guarantee you the temperature you set it at if the room gets much hotter. If it's in the 80s or 90s in the room you won't get the temp down into the 60s.

    We are always around 80 from May til September inside in AZ. Last year was no problem, held mid 60's all summer. Not worried about mid 70's, tells me cooler is not working but RH is steady.

    Just wondering if I should be worried, thinking about turning it off, why run the fans if it isn't cooling

    I turned mine off. I had a real hard time regulating the humidity with it running.  Mine constantly stays at 75 degrees and 75%.  I use it for more long term storage and might open it once every two weeks.  I just like how it seals off completely. 

    I live in Florida with a wife that would gladly live in hell because summer in Florida requires a hoodie to stay warm for her so my temps are typically higher than most.  I've never had any problems but I've never seen it rise above 75 in any of my humidors.

    For whatever reason my humidor that sits directly on top of the winador stays around 65%/68°.  I have no explanation for this.
