Humidity Management for Your Piano

A drastic change in humidity is the NUMBER ONE REASON why a piano goes out of tune! (More so than a drastic change in temperature.) For best protection, the climate surrounding the piano should be controlled. If a building or room humidification/dehumidificaiton system is impractical, the piano may be protected by installing a climate control system right inside the piano itself. If the room that the instrument is located in has more than 15% change in humidity, having this system installed is imperative. These systems generally cost between $100 and $300 installed and help your piano to last longer.
