You are right to be concerned. The best way to protect your clock, believe it or not, is to keep the humidity of your home between 25 to 35%. The point here is to consider that the wood in your new clock contains moisture and the moisture moves in and out of the wood.
Your hardwood furniture is crafted from wood that is carefully dried, retaining just enough moisture for the furniture to acclimate to the relative humidity of your home properly. The wood in your clock continues to exchange moisture with the air, shrinking and expanding in response to the relative humidity in your home.
So the short answer is to watch the relative humidity in your home. Buy a Hygrometer. It also helps to know when to wax or polish your hardwood finishes.
The answer here is, yes. As the temperature changes humidity also changes and this affects the wood. (See above).
