Not sure I understand the dire need of a humidifier, I have not had one since 1986 and none of my homes or the family seem the worse for wear.

Different homes have different requirements due to general design, and materials used (namely wood). Also, different people care differently about the condition of their home.

The home I just bought was so dry, there are gaps in the hardwood where you could see into the basement; installed a humidification system and the gaps have begun closing, and tenants aren't getting nosebleeds anymore.

You have no subfloor?

Nope! House was built in 1870, so apparently it wasn't common back then (I have another rental built in 1890 which also has no subfloor, but this house was "cheaply built", so I figured that was why).
