If you're even remotely inclined, get a steam generating whole house humidifier. The initial cost is a bit high, but you'll love it. No more static shocks, guitars that stay in tune, and the temperature feels more comfortable because the humidity is up.

Get yourself a hardcase with the D'Addario Humidipak.
Install as directed, and leave it for a day or two, then check again. Hopefully it helps. I don't leave the guitar on a stand anymore, it lives in it's case.

Read other answers... and agree with most of them.
This winter, I am experimenting : hung a towel in a two door width wardrobe where I store my guitars. I have to wet the towel at least twice a day. The hygrometer shows it works (50-55%).
In fact, I was tired of filling a soundhole device in each of my many guitars (I have some in HSC, some in gigbag).

Seems like a good idea Mawmow - if you have the closet space. (I would have to ditch a closet full of women's clothes, which I don't think would go over well). I dislike sound-hole devices as well.

Maybe you can 'line' the closet (or the area of it you're using) with plastic, and seal the door well with weather stripping to slow the moisture escaping.
