Your piano is essentially made of wood, due to which varying moisture content in the air can be very detrimental for it. High humidity in the summers causes the wood to expand, whereas low humidity causes the wood to shrink. The expansion and shrinkage of the wood in your piano affects the tuning stability, touch and performance, and longevity of your piano. At 88 Ivories Piano Service, we protect your instrument by installing a humidity control system from the Piano Life Saver.
The most crucial step in maintenance and care of the piano is to keep it in an environment where the humidity level and temperature are consistent at 45% and 75F. While maintaining the temperature is an easy job, maintaining the humidity is not only difficult but also very undesirable. The Piano Life Saver System, when installed, maintains the humidity levels inside your piano between 40-45%. It consists of the Humidistat, which is positioned close to the soundboard. It monitors the moisture content inside the piano. When the moisture content drops too low, it activates the humidifier. Similarly, when the moisture content is too high, it activates the dehumidifier. Thus retaining the humidity level inside your piano. This humidity control system runs silently in the background and remains hidden inside the piano. Thereby better than any humidifiers and dehumidifiers placed outside the piano.
