Humidistat fan in kitchen

Anyone with any experience of these? Our kitchen is cold, damp and mouldy. It has always been cold (not on the central heating, though there is a kickspace heater) but the mould has only been a problem in the past 2-3 years, possibly due to the cold winters we had 2 and 3 years ago and possibly due to DH stopping up all the ventilation to try and make it warmer.

DH thinks we need to insulate the kitchen but I think it's a tricky job - tiny room so insulating on the inside would lose us space, and I'm not sure how we'd go about insulating the outside. I've been wondering if a humidistat-controlled fan is the answer, and whether any of you have experience of one? We do use the extractor fan when cooking, but not when e.g. washing up.

No-one? I know it's boring but someone must have one!
