  1. For what it's worth, I eventually stumbled across a related thread, which led me to this video: Which answered all of my questions, and then some.
  2. For the sake of discussion, sure, we can throw in that variable... But I imagine the only difference this would make would be if there was a flaw in the temperature control system, such as one that creates unstable humidity due to a compressor cycling on and off from the heat generated by the fans. But I'm mostly interested in just the potential negative effects of constant air circulation on an unboxed cigar.
  3. I've researched this topic pretty extensively and I have yet to find a definitive answer. Of all of the forums, this one seems to be most interested in humidor "climatology" (Hello, @PigFish, I've ready many of your posts!) so I thought I'd pose this here. I'm debating on whether or not I should keep air circulation fans running constantly in my humidor. I'm aware that some pretty much universally agreed upon potential effects/side effects of doing this are: Raised temperature due to heat generated by fans Higher electric bill Better distribution of temperature/humidity However, there is one that always seems up for debate: "it will dry out your cigars". I am going to make an educated guess that while air circulation may catalyze/exasperate an existing problem in a humidor (leaking humidity, etc), it doesn't directly "dry out" a cigar. I imagine if a fan is running and is directed at one particular cigar, that one cigar may experience changes quicker than other cigars, but whether it gets "dried out" would be a function of how much humidity is present in the humidor. Therefore, assuming a humidor is properly sealed and humidified, and the temperature is stable and within a healthy threshold, constant air circulation poses no risk of "drying out" cigars. I suppose I could experiment and find an answer on my own, but I'm quite afraid of destroying my cigar collection ? Thoughts?
