    I'm starting to insulate my shop to keep my temperatures
    more stable. What temperature range should I try to keep it at?

    I like 65.
     

  3. I like staying warm, so mine is usually at 70.

    Thanks for the help. I was going to try to keep it between 55º and 75º because I will not be out there everyday and trying to watch my energy cost. I know that will be fine as long as I'm not working on anything. But if I have something drying will the temp. need to be more stable?
     
  5. It doesn't have to be the exact same, just no more than 5-10 degrees different. That's just my opinion.

    Humidity will be the biggest factor for drying. Depending on where you are and what season, you may want to regulate it.

    My shop stays around 70. We've been running the AC for the past few days. I have a dehumidifier, and try to keep the humidity less than 50%
     
  9. 70 degrees 24/7. Don't like temperature or humidity changes. The less the better. Anything above 70 is a bit too fast drying for my preference.
