What should my humidistat be set at on my attic fan. Last winter there was some frost on the wood in the attic. I had the stat installed last night and it ran all night while it was raining outside. There are no leaks in my roof..it was replaced 2 years ago. Thanks

Understand you have moisture in your attic. Pretty much we all do from time to time but the key to this is ventilation and good air circulation, i.e. soffit and ridge vents.

Did you just have the humidstat attached to an exhaust fan? If yes, then during rain you would just pull in saturated air. Did you have a humidifier installed?

The fan is a roof mounted attic fan. I have soffits and ridge vents along with one gable vent. We do not have a humidifier.
