Eva-dry E-500 Renewable Wireless Mini Dehumidifer by Eva-dry $25.43
Eva-dry EDV500 Dehumidifiers $29.99
or Should I go with a different model?
I am also having issues with condensation from the chest freezer wall freezer lines dripping down the walls and pooling up inside the freezer by the compressor. It is pooling up and has a orangish color because it is moving threw the yellow insulation. Does anyone have any ideas on how to minimize the condensation inside the walls of the freezer? Has anyone else had this problem?
Thanks for your help!
I have a 16 sq.ft chest freezer I converted into a kegerator, and it fits 8 cornies no problem. Thought I had the condensation issue undercontrol by adding some addtional insulation and sealing the @#$% out of every gap/hole I could find but even in the winter I am getting moisture inside. I am going to be using 2 of the Eva-dry Renewable EDV-300/E-333 Wireless Mini Dehumidifer, one will always be inside while the other is "re-newing" as well as a marine bilge pump to direct airflow towards the dehumidifier which will also help circulate the air.
I thought about going with a high capacity unit but I want to keep the cost down and since I can get 2 for cheaper than 1 high capacity unit its more economical. I expect that I will have to swap the units our often during the initial few days of the dehumidifier being introduced but figure once the humidity stabizes a single unit could last a couple of weeks. Having 2 of them will prevent me from forgetting to put a unit back after it's "re-newed" and having to play catch up as a result.
