no problem, with a bathroom fan, if the attic itself is well-vented.

maybe not, if it's humid outdoors.

or use herbach and rademan's (800) 848-8001 http://www.herbach.com
nice $4.95 navy surplus humidistat, their item number tm89hvc5203,
with a 20-80% range, a 3-6% differential, and a 7.5a 125v switch
that can be wired to open or close on humidity rise.

do you live on a planet with sentient water vapor? should we put wet

way out faster? :-)
