Sorry, not sure if this is the right place to ask. My room is rather warm and humid, causing a lot of mildew and a damp musty smell. I was thinking of getting a dehumidifier for my room, but when I read through, the dehumidifier works by condensing the water droplets in the air, and then blowing out warm air. I don't get this part. If it blows out warm air, wouldn't it cause increased humidity?
My next question is, how suitable is the use of a dehumidifier in Malaysia? Of course, in western countries that go through winter, it works like a charm to both dehumidify and to warm the room, but I just want dehumidifying function without warming up the room any further.
I know air conditioning acts as a dehumidifier, but I can't have it on all day, and it doesn't prevent mildew and in fact, contributes to the musty stink when it is turned off.
Does anyone have any solution to this? (Besides dehumidifier crystals)

Dehumidifier is work exactly like aircon. It use cool side to extract the water. Water will be drop down into the container.
The hot air that blow out is your room air. The gas inside the condenser need to be cool down before going back to the evaporator to extract the moisture. So the blow air is actually a dry air.
Since it is blowing hot, that don't suit much in here. Unless you don't mind. But the hot air blowing is not really that hot. I have experience few yrs with handling this panasonic humidifier. A close room like closet wil get warm. I use it in factory store room with require very low humid to control the parts rusty. 1 of the troublesome is you always need to drain out the water from the container. Later I modify it to pipe out like a aircon.
Is your place is near to the jungle or have some water fall enviroment?
You can try the cheap way first. Like get the humid hippo from daiso or supermarket. Put every 1 in the drawer and few in the room. This humid hippo work same as humidifier. But using chemical to absorb. With your usual aircon running, see can it reduce or not.
My purpose asking in this thread's, I thought only 30- 60% humidity + comfortable temperature, I think highest's ~28 degrees Celcius, so I'm considering using Dehumidifier + Air Cond simultaneously on= Good Quality Sleep.
i) So, I have the same question as TS anyone knows what happens to humidity after the air's heated & blows out of the Dehumidifier( No one answered yet)?
ii) I thought humidity's fixed and negatively correlated to temperature, so what the hell happened after it's heated back and blowed out of the Dehumidifier, anyone knows?
iii) Ozak, how hot is Dehumidifier, as hot as current computer GPU, say GTX 660 when on full load, as hot as oven or how many % compared to them?This post has been edited by Diiimn: May 29 2017, 04:54 AM
