Can anyone recommend a decent humidifier that will service a 40’ x 40’ basement. My tents are in a partitioned area about 10’ x 12’. I think I will need a compressor type unit to address the issue but I have no experience with these machines and do not trust Amazon reviews or seller claims.
I have a small dehumidifier in the grow room but outside the tent, as well as hvac vents, my flowering tent is a 4x4 with intake and exhaust fans. During rain or high rh, running my dehumidifier 24/7 and playing with hvac vents I can get the humidity down to about 62-65% in the partitioned area and rarely below 68% in the 4x4 flowering tent during lights out.
This is my first full year in this house, as well as my first basement setup, all was good until the spring rains and summer humidity hit . . . last grow was my first experience with bud rot in over 20 years so I’ve got to get a handle on this or shut down until I can get the basement dryer or find a room upstairs to invade.
Any recommendations for a good unit, or any suggestions to otherwise control humidity would be greatly appreciated.
