Damp Chaser Life-Saver System (Climate & Humidity Control Systems)
Pianos are built with many natural, organic materials and parts that are affects by ambient temperature and humidity, These natural materials react in various ways to climatic conditions and changes, so it is important that temperature and relative humidity be controlled for tuning stability and longevity. Where this is not possible, installation of a Dampp-Chaser Piano Life-Saver System is recommended.
The PIANO LIFE SAVER is a piano humidity control system.
As a fundamental component of complete piano care, it protects your piano from the undesirable effects of extreme or fluctuating humidity levels. The Piano Life Saver System will enable your instrument to maintain proper pitch between tunings and protect the myriad of tiny wooden parts that make up a piano. A stable piano will be more enjoyable to play and listen to while rewarding your fingers with a consistent, proper touch.
The Dampp-Chaser Piano Life-Saver System has proven itself many thousands of times over in the U.S. By means of continuous alternate dehumidifying and humidifying, the system reduces fluctuations in relative humidity affecting the sensitive areas of the piano (soundboard, keyboard, action, playability, tuning stability) to within a range of 40 to 60%, thus reducing fluctuations in the moisture content of the wooden and felt components. Piano actions are composed mainly of wood & felt, materials highly susceptible to environmental changes.
