A humidifier adds moisture in the air and is useful in relieving colds, coughs, congestions, asthma, sinus, allergies etc. The mold issues come about due to high moisture content in the environment. The recommended level is between 30-50%. Get a hygrometer to measure the humidity level and only use the humidifier when the level is below 50 and a dehumidifier if the level is above 50.

We use a humidifier in our boy's rooms at night in the winter, but we live in Chicago and it can get so so so dry here in the winter. It helps with coughs and such. We only use them at night, and we set it on a low setting. If you can see condensation on windows from a humidifier, then the setting is much too high.

NZ is pretty humid so I've never used one. 85% humidity at the moment and that's not really that bad.

Yeah, like we would need one in our damp country with mouldy rental houses. Can understand the need for one if you live in a dry climate though.
