During winter the weather can be quite dry. Do you feel the need for a humidifier in your house? Do you own one?

I don't use one. I understand some people can really suffer with dampness, but it would just be an extra appliance using up electricity for me, so I don't have one or use one.
Winter can be damp in the UK and I have an old house so there's no need to add any moisture to the air where I live.
I try to limit the amount I use a humidifier as I've found they can encourage mould growth, but as soon as someone gets a cough I bring ours out as having the moist air can really ease breathing at night time, and not just for little babies, helping us all to get a good nights rest.
This is going to be 1st Melbourne winter for me. So don't know if I need to buy one.
No need for that really.

I have used one when we have colds or my kids have croup. Other than that, no.
No don't use a humidifier.

With the natural humidity I get here, even in Winter, there's no way I'd need a humidifier!
Summer humidity Dec-Feb is always between 90-100%!
Always feel like a wrung-out 'dishrag'.............
