    open one of the vents on top....I try to stay out - it helps keep things more consistant.

    I have an LG still air too. When my humidity gets too high, I uncover one of the two vents on top. i monitor the humidity, if it gets too low I cover back up again.

    It seems to work ok. The one little hole allows enough humidity out with out drastically changing the temp.
