I think the point here is that a heater simpy converts water from a liquid state to a gaseous state...unless the water vapour has somewhere to go it will simply evaporate and condense with fluctuating temperature caused by the heater thermostat. If you have a vent to let vapour out, then more vapour can get in too.

With a dehumidifier, the water is absorbed into the dehumidier and then drained out as Mollers explained and there's no need to provide an air vent. But, it does assume power - which you must already have - and space - which you may not.
