Can a dehumidifier make a room more humid?

Do Humidifiers raise humidity?
The relative humidity in the air is increased by the addition of moist air. Increasing the number of water droplets is a key factor in determining the level of relative humidity.
Is it worth running a dehumidifier constantly all the time?
It is a better target for dust mites to live in relative humidity of 50% or less. In a UK winter, average humidity can be much higher than this, so a dehumidifier needs to be kept running consistently to maintain healthy levels.

How much will a dehumidifier reduce humidity?
The air coming out of most dehumidifiers is not very humid. It is possible to reduce the humidity to between 30% and 40% when the temperature is 70 degrees or higher. When the temperature goes below 70 degrees, it will go up to 60 %.
How do I know if I need a humidifier or dehumidifier?
