What’s the ambient RH in your room? I’m assuming you have the humidifier set below 65.

I’m asking if you know what the RH is in your house, outside of your humidor.

Ok. My only idea then would be that your cigars are giving off that extra moisture or the humidity canisters in the Avallo are passively letting out moisture even though the system isn’t calling for it.

I’m not that familiar with his canister system though.

I noticed in my basement, now in the summer my aristocrat humidity usually rises. My basement stays around 68 degrees. Usually were I like it. But my humidity it around 68% My unit hasnt ran in 3 months. Once winter comes it runs like a beast. Could just be a the change in temp. Where are you located?

I haven't dry boxed. I am in a position now that all my sticks are smoking real good. I am actually liking them more at 66-68 then 65 and below. I will have to see what happens when I get matt's Unit in.

If you need to remove humidity to lower RH in the hot sticky months. I've found that adding moisture is much easier than removing it. The Dry and Dry  product is the best I've found. 5 lbs will do it.

Leave the door open an inch or two, for a couple hours, then see where things are at.  I do that with my Staebell occasionally when the ambient RH creeps up in the summer.  Another forum I frequent has a great thread about humidor "Seasonal Mood Disorder" and it's effect on our cabinets.

For any of us with a cabinet humidor, I can't recommend the little wireless hygrometers from Sensor Push highly enough.  Salt test them when you get them, and then you have an independent and accurate way to check on things without opening the door.  I have two in my cabinet (top and bottom).

Another handy accessory is a cheap desktop humidor where you can "dry box" cigars for a couple days before you smoke them.  

Good luck..!!
