What is Your RH?

I like to keep mine around 62/63. What about the rest of you?

Re: What is Your RH?

My RH is has been 62-65 during these hot months. It stays solid at 65 during the fall and winter. I just learned in the Fire Academy that the colder air is, the more RH it has and the hotter, less. That just doesn't make sence to me. We run our A/C at 69-71 degrees during the summer and my RH has been lower. I just assume that the air from the a/c is dry. During the winter months, we keep the temperature about the same, maybe a little warmer and my RH stays at 65.

None-the-less, my cigars seem to be fine.

Re: What is Your RH?

Desktops are at a comfortable......Don't have a hygrometer in them, I just go by feel.

Walk-in is at about 63-64 right now. But I will agree with Chris, I like them at 62-63%, less problems!

Re: What is Your RH?

I keep my 3 humis at 65% with RH beads but it fluctuates between 64% and 65% and then the temp is usually mid to low 60s at night and low 70s during the day...

Re: What is Your RH?

60-63% here. Although I judge more by the way a cigar feels than anything else. CC's cigar storage advice is pure genius.

Re: What is Your RH?

I really need to learn to not sweat it when my RH goes to 61-62. My cigars are fine and smoke great. I've said it before and I'll say it again, temperature really affects my RH. House thermostat at 71 = RH 63-64%. Thermostat at 70 = RH 61-62%. Does it everytime.

Re: What is Your RH?

70 degrees in he house is what it takes to maintain 72 degrees in my humidors. 71 degrees in the house bumps it up to 73 in the humidors.

As proven this past winter, my RH held rock steady at 65% with the temperature at 69-70 degrees.

For me, if I'm uncomfortable, then my cigars probably are also. I have a hard time sleeping if the temperature is 72 or above.

Re: What is Your RH?

Steve, really for the most part, my sticks smoke great. I really don't know why I'm still using hygrometers. They can be a headache and cause paranoia .

If it gets to about 90 make sure there are no sparks near it as it might cause a thunderstorm in your humidor.

61-64 RH and a cool steady 65 F. Our A/C / Furnace stays at 62 in the winter, A/C 65 in the summer. Never had a problem with RH. Heartfelt beads really help btw.
