The GoldenRod Dehumidifier offers specific advantages for storage enclosures that are located in cool areas of the home, infrequently accessed and containing high value items made from steel and wood. In addition to gun safes this might include storage cabinets for tools and other equipment that are most often located in the basement or the garage.
Goldenrod Dehumidifiers are offered in two colors and four sizes. They are UL listed and all operate from a 110 volt power supply. The approximate coverage is in cubic feet and is the manufacturer's figure. The full range is as follows.
Heated rods are ideal for enclosed storage containers such as gun safes and tool cabinets, particularly where the container is kept in a cool area. This type of dehumidifier is less suitable for larger areas, such as rooms within the home, vehicles and boats. If you are looking for a dehumidifier for your gun safe or a tool storage cabinet the heated rod type is ideal. Of the various brands on the market the GoldenRod Dehumidifier is undoubtedly among the best.
Other applications for which the GoldenRod is recommended by the manufacturer include aircraft, and RVs. For these larger spaces multiple units will be needed. The GoldenRod(s) will only be effective if used while the vehicle or boat is in storage and suitably sealed. If an , for example, is being used the production of water vapor from everyday activities will require a dehumidifier which is removing water from the air, not simply raising the temperature a few degrees. The GoldenRod Dehumidifier would not be our first recommendation for any type of vehicle.
