I have my safe in an insulated back room of my garage. I have a Golden Rod to raise the temperature a bit above ambient. In addition I use an Arm and Hammer Moisture remover and change it out when it fills. The combo seems to work well.

This may be covered already in this very old thread.
Is your safe fireproof? I have used some smaller business safes that had water jackets on the interior walls. Sometimes if the safe was not opened for a couple of days the currency and papers within would feel damp. Just using the door once a day would stop the dampness.
I know I'd never store a gun in one.

I use a product called DampRid Moisture Absorber that I get at Dollar general
and you can see how it works with the crystals on top and the moisture collects on the bottom.
When it is full just dump it and replace with a fresh one.

I have a 64 gun safe which, when purchased, I put a qt. container of Desiccant.
The can's contents have never changed color or appeared damp.
I recently bought a hygrometer, & it states the humidity is ~70% which I believe is
higher than desired.
Anybody have any experience or recommendations?

Marine equipment suppliers often stock electric dehumidifiers for use in "closed" boat cabins during storage.

Thanks.
In the 8 or so years since I posted this, I have bought a goldenrod.
