Nice setup for the desert @Trish, a few big Boveda's so you can rotate out for recharge and you have it made. The seals on those coolers are incredible, don't need a huge investment in humidity.That said you appear to be low, have you got this month's newsletter?
Lol go to bed Tex...you're drunk son
On my Newair I use 65% beads and 66 temp and everything was perfect ( 64-65 rh ) for months no matter what the house temp was.....Then 2 weeks ago I readjusted the temp up to 68 temp ( Just so it didn't run so much. ) Well the rh dropped down to 57% over the next couple of days. So I set it at 66 temp again and the rh slowly went up to 64-65. Lesson learned.....Don't monkey with it if the rh is good.
Warmer air can hold more moisture without condensing (further away from dew point) so the moisture present (not %) at 65 F will be a lower rh% at 68 F.The Bovedas SHOULD catch up at 68 F, but it may take time for things to stabilize.
I had to go look that up. https://science.howstuffworks.com/nature/climate-weather/atmospheric/question651.htmI thought gauges read the absolute humidity. So I guess that means finding and keeping the correct temp is how to keep the rh range your looking for.I guess I got lucky the first time when setting it up.
I use similar hygrometers, found mine on eBay. Did you calibrate them? Mine are off up to 6%. It's no big deal if they're off, as long as you know how much.Nice work, BTW.
@BKDog have you considered going worry free and switching over to coolers? Not as pretty but they work great here in our humid climate.
just to keep the thread clear of misunderstanding.
