Yeah it does. All the people that need dehumidifiers in winter are either in leaky houses or dont heat them properly to have problems. I used to put a saucepan of water ontop of the oil heater to keep humidity up when I was using one of those to heat. Now I have draftproofed the house more and am not having cold outside air leak inside to the same amount, I dont really need anything. On some occasions I fire up an ultrasonic mister I got from kmart to put a bit more moisture in the air. Its sold as a smelly essential oil diffuser but it does the same thing with only water in it.

I've got one of those.

 

I guess it holds about 100ml (g) of water, and that water lasts many hours, probably 10.

 

Say in a 30m3 room, if the air was at 20 deg, RH was 50%, and I vapourised the entire 100ml of water instantly, the RH would only increase from 50 to 57%.

 

There's a calculator here - saves bothersome arithmetic.

 

Those things are like f^rting at thunder - in terms of being useful as humidifiers in a room.  I suspect they'd add about as much moisture to the air as a baby's breath.

I just point it at me. Most of the moisture in the air ends up on the windowsill of crap single glazing so the less I have to add the better.

Open the windows.

When you’re heating the house don’t close it up.
