Piano Life Saver: Humidity Control

Your piano is manufactured from an amazing number of high precision wooden parts. It is highly influenced by changes in humidity. This means all these wooden parts change size and shape as the wood absorbs and releases moisture to and from the air. Have you ever had a wooden door on a cabinet or closet or even a drawer become stuck or squeak? This is the result of dimensional changes in the wooden parts from humidity changes. The most notable and immediate change from humidity ina piano is the tuning and pitch stability. A rise in humidity raises the pitch and a lowering of humidity lowers the pitch. Within the piano, structural compromises are made from this cyclic change in pitch. A properly installed Piano Life Saver System will work very well to minimize the short and long term effects of humidity changes within the piano regardless of the room conditions.

Dancing Ivories is a Certified Field Expert and Certified Damp Chaser Installer of humidity control systems specifically designed for pianos. If your piano has a player system installed, unique and specialized consideration must be given to the player and speakers as they generate some warmth that could have an undesirable effect on the humidity control system if not installed properly.
