What temperature and humidity do you folks target for?
On the interwebs people mention the ideal is anywhere from 20%-70%. Arizona dryness is absolutely brutal on rubber/petroleum/organic based components. I'd say just as damaging as excessive moisture. I've measured as low as 5% RH in the garage during winter. The heater dries the air, and A/C dries the air. I've thrown lightning bolts from my fingers when wearing socks in the house.
Today I added a humidifier. For now I'm targeting 70-80 degrees 30% RH. Is this sufficient? If I target for 70%, there won't be enough water in Arizona for the fish.

I was just talking about this with an HVAC guy that is looking at putting a mini-split in my garage here in Phoenix.
Seems that the car mags are saying 50% Relative Humidity is a good target but could be hard to achieve here in PHX unless you have a very tight controlled airspace.
