I don't think it would hurt the cigars to let them sit at 62 degrees during the colder months. Stability is key when it comes to aging. What you don't want are temp or humidity swings. I would think that your cigars would do better at a steady 62 during the colder months then constantly swinging between 67 and 70 all the time as long as you are using beads that keep the RH stable.understood. I was under the assumption that it would raise the max temp on the cooler. was hoping that was the case since the unit will be in my partially unfinished basement, which is maybe 60-62 max during the winter months.
