I have a thermoelectric cooling system\Peliter setup. That works fairly well. I do have a problem with humidity control. I believe its because of the high humidity in Texas. I can control it with a lot of humi beads (4 lbs) and 3 reticulating fans.

I would attach a picture but I am post-lexic

Re: cabinet style humidor cooling

Is this mounted strictly inside the humidor or does the hole go all the way through the humidor with the outside making heat and the inside cold?
I"d hate to cut a hole in the humidor but would minding mounting one of these inside to drop the temperature a few degrees. Also does it have it's own thermostat to cycle on and off?

Re: cabinet style humidor cooling

I guess the answer was there for us.
Here is the description from the vendor:
"Just cut a hole in your insulated cooler box and fit an aluminum plate or heat-sink (not supplied) to this assembly to turn your cooler into a fridge for the car or boat."

All "PELTIER" coolers work the same way - you have to vent the hot side to the exterior so yes they all require a hole to be cut.

Re: cabinet style humidor cooling

With spring/summer fast approaching I thought I would top Poker-san's great thread about cooling options for humi's

Just do it!

Re: cabinet style humidor cooling

The only problems I have with my pelter cooling is the noise (sounds like a PC) and it takes a lot of beads (3 pounds) to keep the humidity down in the summer (Houston is very humid).

Re: cabinet style humidor cooling

Excellent post. I've been researching peltier coolers and spent a lot of time on RGD's site looking at his project. I'm working on building something about half the size of his. In Phoenix today I think we got really close to 90 today and it's only mid-March. I cringed when I got home and saw my humidor at 78 degrees.
