Do houseplants actually reduce humidity and cool down a room or house?

Did it work for you?

I live in an extremely hot 3rd story room during the summers.

I read that some plants like a peacelily might help.

    Of course not. If anything they increase humidity as you water them and some of that water evaporates. The only way they cool a room is if they are blocking light from a window and creating shade. If I lived in a hot room on the 3rd floor, I think I would turn up the AC and buy a fan.
