Hey BG I think the metal stuff still gets a bit moist but the other stuff stays a fair bit drier. For what it is worth this crappy old garage is only temporary, I am glad to have it but it is just about as close to nothing as you can get. I burn two 60-75 watt bulbs 24/7 and it just barely keeps things dry. I am all for more efficient ways of doing things. I am on my way to getting things done but I wish they could do something smart to help us receive new technology like keeping the cost down to near the regular bulbs. I would run the CFLs and or the LEDs in all the sockets if they were inexpensive. My current situation is only an example of why some people use regular bulbs.
