If I buy a de-humidifier, will it keep my studio cooler?

Asked by manahouri (93points) July 28th, 2007

I don't have an a/c. I will never have an a/c. Can a de-humidifier bring the comfort level back on a mild but very humid night?

De-humidifier only removes water from air. Get a fan w. three speeds (Walmarts, $ store, etc) and let the moving air play over your body. I keep mine about 1 foot from bed..Use water from de-hum. for plants. Fans are cheap and last forever.

it will likely make the room warmer.
like a a/c, warm air will be blown out of the rear of the unit. They do have window mounted a/c 's that have a dehumidify setting, whereas it will not blow cold air, but just dehumidify .

Wait, you don't have A/C in your studio, you're putting in a humidifier and your fridge stinks like rotten meat. Can I come over? That doesn't sound like fun.

an air conditioner will cool off and de-humidify your dwelling.

rovdog, come on over. smell's almost gone, BTW, vinegar worked. I'll stick with my fans, pattyb, thanks for the info.

Dude, I'm there. I'm bringing the cold ones in an igloo, a little poultry for some hot wings (not too rotten yet) and one of those portable electric fans you buy on the boardwalk. What's on the tube? Or is it broken?

TV gets your basic four channels with a bit of rabbit-ear adjustment. Don't worry, enough fans for two. Sure, bring the poultry--why not try again :D?

You have rabbit ears? I was bringing tinfoil and a wire coathanger. I'm down with four channels. Let's watch like fuzzy Scholastic Scrimmage on public access. God, I wish I'd been one of those kids.
