You don't turn off the power to the dry cabi, leave it on 24/7. Its' power consumption is very low, about 5W, so don't worry about the electrical bill.

NO...

it works like a thermostat. It will automatically shut off and turn on by itself.

DO NOT turn it off... you will lose the protection of a fixed humidity then.

And anyway, it takes SO little electrical power only. 5watts compared to your computer which may be sucking down 400-500 watts...

What sort of computer are you running? Even my Phenom II with 4870 in Crossfire doesn't drain that much... :sweat:

The PSU's sold in SLS are a minimum of 300 watts these days... And with the number of HDD's graphics and CPU drain, I wouldn't be surprised at the amount of power a personal computer does use up. :bsmilie:

Dun forget the amount of fans required to cool down and also the monitor.
