What kind of guitar? Acoustic? Electric? Which make and model? It's possible the relative humidity is low inside your house, allowing the wood on the neck to shrink a little, exposing the frets. This can be fixed by properly humidifying the house. It's also possible the guitar is just a cheap one and the frets weren't finished to the proper level that a quality guitar would receive. In this case, carefully filing and finishing the frets will make a difference. If it's just a matter of humidification and you file the frets, when the wood takes on moisture and swells to its normal dimensions, the frets might be too short, effecting playability.
