I recently bought a Browning gun safe. 4 guys, and a boom truck later it was where it's going to spend a lot of quality time. Having never owned a safe before, I just wanted to know if one golden rod will be enough to keep the humidity level down. The safe will probably not be opened much in the summer, as I am gone for 6 months for work. The safe is located in a heated basement. I probably won't use dessicant as I will not be around to change it, and think it could cause more problems than it fixes. Is a goldenrod heating device that runs continuously without the safe being opened for long periods going to "cook" my guns? Safe is approximately 39 cubic feet. Any advice would be appreciated. Thank you J. Webb.
