    I'd keep humidity low and then wait as long as possible to boost, not lock them down early.... But wait for the experts to chime in. ;)


    ETA: Looks like Ravyn has you covered.

    I removed vent plugs 45 minutes before I left the house this morning, temp dropped to 99 right before I left. Now, it is back to 100 with 29% humidity. Should I leave the temp controls alone, or bump it up a little? It has been 5 hours.
