Benefits of the Piano Life Saver for Piano Tuning, Keys & Keyboards, Piano Care and Maintenance
The system provides a consistent climate, keeping the humidity level constant year round in any climate or environment. The Piano Life Saver is installed out of sight, inside the piano. Models are available for Grand Pianos, Baby Grands, and Upright pianos.
The Piano Life Saver System…
Permits the tuning to hold better between regular tunings
Minimizes the expansion and contraction of action parts in upright pianos which provides improved touch and keyboard control
Prevents rust on the strings and metal parts
Minimizes felt deterioration, reducing the harsh tones that come from flattened hammer felt in low humidity or the muffled tones from swollen hammer felt in high humidity
Minimizes glue failure throughout the piano
Protects your investment year after year
All wood shrinks and swells with humidity changes. Your piano is made, primarily, of wood.
Results of Shrinking and Swelling
Pitch Instability Your piano must have stable pitch to hold a tuning well.
Cracking and Splitting of wooden piano parts bring costly repairs.
Glue Failure throughout the piano which also brings costly repairs.
How it Works
The Piano Life Saver System is made up of basic components which work together to control internal piano humidity levels, maintaining the recommended relative humidity and climate no matter what the external conditions are.
Through a cycling action, the Humidistat is calibrated to create a separate environment within the piano, producing a narrow range of average humidity. When the Humidistat, located less than an inch from the soundboard, senses that the wood is dry, it turns the piano Humidifier on. Then, when the Humidifier has provided enough moisture to the soundboard, the Humidistat turns off the Humidifier and turns on the Dehumidifier. The piano Dehumidifier carries away moisture from the soundboard on air currents until the Humidistat senses that the soundboard is dry. The System again switches to the humidifying function. The cycle continues day after day, year after year, protecting your piano from external conditions.Type your paragraph here.
