Humidity spike.

Recommended Posts

I have been using a wineador now for 3 years. It has not moved location since being set up. It was holding a steady 64% humidity for a long time. Recently, it has now gone up to 68%. I can’t figure out why the increase. Any ideas would be appreciated.

A temp drop. 

Same thing I was thinking.

Could also be if you recently added some wet sticks or boxes.
Also if battery is low on hydro I find readings can be off.

Another possibility is the ambient humidity. If you have been repeatedly opening the door when the outside RH is high then it can saturate your humidor.

It happens to me as well. Humidity is relative to temperature, so as temp goes down, relative humidity goes up. So don't be in panic mod.
Are you using beads to maintain humidity? A relatively full humidor with plenty of beads should stay stable pretty easily unless you are opening it constantly or have added wet sticks as havanaclub already mentioned.
