I have a whole house humidifier (primarily to keep the heating bills
lower :)
but it does keep the wooden instruments in better shape - we have a
grand
piano, various clarinets (presently), and guitars in the house. The
piano
keeps its tune, the guitars don't rattle, and the clarinets stay in good
shape. The trumpet doesn't seem to care :)

Considering what the north part of the U.S. goes through in temperature
variations, a humidifier properly set up can't hurt.
