Dehumidifying Cabin Interior during Storage

Hi all,

My 140 is stored in a unheated hanger with power. It gets flown once every two weeks or so. When I put it away I'd like to put some type of dehumidifier or heater in the cabin to keep the moisture out. I suspect it will help keep the avionics up and functioning as well as eliminate the general musty smell. What do others use? Whatever I use would be plugged in and left 'on' for a couple of weeks perhaps. Is it safe to use a simple cheap heater? Or is there some product made for this type of application?

I've asked this question on another board and got a few replies - Apologies for the x-post but others here may have different suggestions. Thanks for any inputs...
