Its at least 100 in my reloding room what the heck

Hay guys Like many of you I have a room all to myself for my reloading and such. It started to get very humid in there so I went out the other day and got a dehumidfire (i think thats the right spelling). To cut down on the rusting and general wet felling. Only issue is, it was the coolest room in my house now its like 100 in there. Is that normal? Its dry now.

"100 degrees in the reloading room" Room may not be wet anymore but I bet the ole crack will be

Seriousley, my dad had the same problem his reloading room is huge and he had rusting problems so he bought one of those things that you spelled correctley and a can to leave in his safe . but that didn't fix it completly . my dad installs epoxy sealents in concrete floors all across the country he sealed his concrete floor with some industrial stuff ( i don't remeber the name of it) and it fixed him right up . Does your loading room have a concrete floor? if so your probably getting moisture coming up through the concrete.

ICANHITITMAN, I talked to dad and he's going to get me the info of what name and brand of sealent that he used it will also have the instilation instructions . once I get it I can fax it to you if you have a fax if not it will take me a while to type it out as i'm kind of slooow on the typing but i'll help all I can.

He told me that his dehumidifier makes his room very hot and very dry his words was "you can hardly breath in there at times it's so dry" .

Re: Its at least 100 in my reloding room what the heck

My bench is in the garage and what temps it is outside, it is usually a little hotter in the garage in Arizona. It has been in the 100's for a couple weeks now. So I weigh my charges in the house and then go out to the garage and seat the bullets. But sizing and trimming is done out there, a fan helps a little.

Re: Its at least 100 in my reloding room what the heck

My reloading room is well insulated and I have a small air conditioner (Window type unit in it
that is only 6500 btu) and it dehumidifies very well and keeps the room very comfortable. It
is also my machine shop and I don't want any of my tools to rust.

The small ones cost less than $150.00 and do a better job of removing moisture than the larger
air conditioners because they run a little longer removing more moisture.

Also I bought some 1/2" rubber machine shop mats for the floor and they helped.

When I'm not home I leave it set at 85o and just before I start i kick it down to 75o and in a little
while it is very comfortable.

I live in south Texas near the gulf of Mexico and the average humidity is 95+% year round.
