Dehumdifier
« on: October 17, 2011, 03:10:56 PM »
I just got a new digital dehumidifier for my shop. What would be a good setting for my cars? I have heat and air but usually set them between 50 and 80. Here in NC sometimes it gets pretty humid and I can feel it on my cars.

Kelley I live down in Alabama and you know the old saying. "Only place on earth you can have the heat and a/c on in the same day". I run my dehumidifier at 70%. One guy told me my shop was sealed too tight cause it sweats with temp swings but you'll probably have to play with it a little to get it set for your shop and weather.

Mine sweats too. Think the dehumidifier will help. Thanks

Yes, here in the South the humidity can be 100% and it is not raining outside.
I set mine at 65%.
