  • No. Dehumidmifiers are meant to pull moisture from the air. They are often used in basements where it tends to be more damp than the rest of the house.

  • It'll feel more comfortable in the room,but won't technically be cooler

  • You will feel cooler, but the thermometer won't change. It does work to help you function or sleep. GL.

  • What about using a cool mist vaporizer? It will add moisture to the air and it is pretty cold coming out. I have to use on in the winter because we have forced heat and the house gets too dry and we all get stuffy noses. My Dad came over once and said I shouldn't use it because its cooling the air down. But we needed the moisture!!

  • Evaporation may cool the room a degree or two. A properly sized ceiling fan will lower the temperature at least seven degrees.

  • Do not use a vaporizer - adding moisture to the air will make it feel worse. A dehumidifier won't do much but dry the air out. You could try using a dehumidifier and a fan to move the air.
