Humidity & DeHumidifiers....

Live In Texas & summer = real hot + high humidity.

First summer I have had our AS in a fully enclosed metal storage unit = no breeze for air circulation.

So purchased a DeHumidifier with it currently set to 35% humidity (lowest setting) with it draining into the shower drain. It has been 5 days now and grey tank level has gone from 25% to 31%. Everything seems to be going fine.

So my question is are there side effects of pulling the humidity down this low - other than filling my grey tank up faster?

Thanks,

Glenn

Possibly. Wood cabinetry does like to have some moisture. You could run into shrinkage and cracking, but I doubt it. However, I do think you're wasting electricity. Mold and mildue cant grow under.....I believe 60% humidity. I keep mine set at 45% when I know I have an active leak that I am pursuing. When all is leak free and dry, I set it at 50%

Oh, and open all cabinets and storage, including under bed. That is more important to keep dry than the large open spaces. Nooks and crannies is where mold and mildew love to take up residence.
