So I've had my guitar for about a year now and it's been through 1 and 1/2 winters in Minnesota. Seems that (depending on the string) I get a slight buzz from the 9th fret up (I have to pick pretty aggressively, but it is definitely there). Is it time for a visit to the guitar shop to adjust the truss rod?

Also, I was wondering how to lengthen the time between these trips. I know it's best to keep your guitar in a warm, humid place, but will a bit of cold and dry air mess up the neck? I run a humidifier in my dorm and try to keep it warm but sometimes it just doesn't work especially when roommate decides to open the window. Also, is there such a thing as TOO warm or humid?

Edit: Also, is it at all bad for the guitar to have the truss rod adjusted?

There is nothing wrong with adjusting the truss rod, that's it purpose for being there. So definately if you need it to be adjusted, then go ahead
