THere must be ventilation for that incubator, eventually the room ir must be pulled into the incubator. I think it is worth running the dehumidifier or A/C as both dry the air. I am running the dehumidifier these days.
also search BYC for more ideas. One woman suggested I increase the ventilation rate. ANd that worked for me.
I will try to come up with something. The dehumidifier is OLD and it was a really hot in the shop when we got to the farm. So I turned it off as the RH had not changed. I kept the AC on but again it is OLD and not really cooling but putting out a lot of water. I need to move it. If this hatch is lost when I check them over the weekend..... I may move it since it will be empty. Hubby has given me his bigger shop area since I have really out grown the little shop. One BIG issue is that is our way in and out. The main door to the outside and to the big shop. Very hard to control anything in this heat with us going in and out all day. I may move it either way. That would be a project I didn't have on the books. I can shut the bigger area off and run the dehumidifier or a better AC to help.
RICE Great Idea! I can just take them out side to cook LOL I don't think it will take much. Once it gets down I think it will stay down. I don't get in there much. I think if I increase the ventilation it will get worse. It is like 80% RH here right now.
Sorry, I meant to pull in drier air from the AC or dehumidifier. Yes, mine make a LOT of heat too. It's a juggling game. LOL
Get the air in the room to a lower RH, as it probably gets pulled into the incubator. Maybe not, as you have a huge one and it is probably tighter than an LG.
When the outside RH changes, the house changes the next day, and the LG changes the day after. LOL
