What's the ideal setting? I know too dry isn't a good thing, for neither
the collection nor my house. Right now I've got it set to 40% and it's
running pretty aggressively. My basement hovers between 55 and 60 degrees
Fahrenheit throughout the year, and the dehumidifier figures out relative
humidity for you.
I keep mine at 50%. Also, be prepared for it to get a bit warmer down
there than before. There will be some waste heat from the dehumidifier.
