We live in an apartment and for reasons to long to go into cannot have
air conditioning. All we have are fans which do an OK job of moving
the air around. Better than nothing I guess.
Now... If we were to add a DEHUMIDIFIER to the mix, would that help us
feel any cooler? Sometimes, especially at night the humidity outside
is like 80, 90% or even higher. We have the windows open and although
the air is a little cooler at night it is just so damn sticky.
What if we got a dehumidifier or two, closed the windows and let the
fans run. Would it FEEL cooler? Also... do dehumidifiers have any
COOLING capability at all?
Thanks in advance
Get a portable air conditioner, perferably a dual hose one. The unit
sits inside the apartment and all need is a small window for the air
Dehumidifier does not have any cooling capability, it is a heater!

I have a dehumidifier in my basement; it keeps the humidity down, but it
runs a lot and bring the basement temp up to 80 degrees. If I leave it off,
the humidity will go up to 75 to 80 percent and the temp hovers around 74 or
lower. There is absolutely no cooling to be felt from my dehumidifier. The
whole process just generates its own heat. All the evap coils do
is...........ahh, you know all that. NY metro area. Now, if you vent all
the hot air outside that the condenser dissipates, that might be different,
as it would then be a little portable AC (maybe, I'm only a dimwit
