Whole Room Humidifier


SPrada

Recommended Posts

Ask the humidity experts I have a small dressing room where I started to store my acoustics according to the suggestions I received in this forum. I put a small automatic whole house humidifier there I set it so that my hygrometer in the cabinet fluctuates by 45%, while the rest of the house is around 30%.
Since the room is quite small, I prefer to store the guitars in their cases to avoid random things. Inside the box, the hygrometer reads a humidity similar to 45%. Is there a problem with keeping the guitars in their cases from a moisture perspective? Would the humidity inside the box really be the same as on the outside? Would condensation form in homes?

I don't know, might want to ask on a guitar forum. You could use Boveda packets to get a specific humidity or even use kitty litter to get it down. I'd imagine 45% would be fine for guitars, you just don't want them super wet(I'd imagine 80% plus) or super dry (20% or less). Those numbers are guesses based on wood and general knowledge, I'm NOT a guitar guy so again, I'd direct you towards a guitar forum for a definitive answer. Once you have a RH goal, then I might be able to help.

 

Also, generally temperature plays a role in RH and how it effects materials.

The one that you've showed seems way too big for this purpose. As you said it is a whole house humidifier, so it is designed for a house. There are much smaller versions, for example check on travel humidifiers.
