That's what the balcony is for. :)

I have three reasons against dehumidifiers:
- they increase the room temperature which is not great during the already hot summer
- they are noisy so staying in the same room while one is running isn't really ideal
- they consume roughly the same amount of electricity as an energy efficient inverter A/C unit rated for the same sized area.

Running the A/C will also dehumidify your place and making it cooler at the same time thus keeping it mould free and comfy. It's quieter and doesn't use more energy. And you don't need to buy another appliance which already saves you money. Only place I imagine a dehumidifier would be handy is a closed, unused room. Like in a closet room or something.

lazio everyone knows the balcony is for storing shit that you can't fit under the bed

actually, a closed, unused room (with the laundry) is exactly where my dehumidifier is used :p

Careful not to talk too much about air conditioning or complain about it being too hot.  De  Martin     o will come on and flame you for not loving heat and tell you it's all in your head.  Mwa ha ha ha ha.......
