    You can also use a wet and dry bulb thermeter better known as a sling psycrometer. You however need a chart ro determine dew pt. temp and humidity percentage to make this device of use. Do a search for sling psycrometer and see if you can get a chart.

    Places like Lowes, Walmart, Kmart, Home Depot, etc sell a combo thermometer and hydrometer for about $5.00. Not the fanciest device around, but these are what I use.

    The min/max features on the more expensive instruments would be a real plus.

    Just to make a correction Nick, it is a HyGrometer to measure humidity. A Hydrometer is used to measure the specific gravity of saltwater (the salt content).

    Hey Nick, I've never seen hygrometers at HD or Lowe's, what section are they found in? $5 is a steal! I gotta get one, unless it those cheap plastic reptile thermometer/hygrometer things.

    larry, I got one at Wal Mart. It has them min/max for temp and humidity. I don't remember exactly how much it was, but it seems like it was about $10.00 to $15.00. So It was probably closer to $20.00 [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] . It was in with the rest of the thermometers over in the housewares/hardware stuff.
