The Piano Lifesaver System
For Piano Climate Control
Through the years, I have installed many Piano Life Saver Systems manufactured by Dampp-Chaser, which controls the climate inside your piano. As seasons change over the year, so does the relative humidity.
What are the benefits of a Piano Climate Control System?
- Permits the tuning to hold better between tunings;
- Minimizes rust on the string and metal parts;
- Minimizes the expansion and contraction of piano action parts;
- Minimizes felt deterioration;
- Protects the piano's investment value for years.
I wish every piano was equipped with a Piano Life Saver System because of the stability and protection it provides.
The Piano Life Saver System comes with a watering container and humidifier treatment. All you can see is the tiny light display. A convenient watering tube tucks away neatly out of sight.
"When Amy recommended the Piano Life Saver System for my new Yamaha upright, I was initially skeptical and not looking to spend any additional money right after buying a new piano. However, as it became apparent that this new piano was not staying in tune for more than a month or two at a time, I started to look into the System more. I calculated that for what I was spending on frequent tunings, I could have had the Life Saver System installed and hopefully decreased my number of tunings. That is exactly what occurred. Amy installed the System and I now have my piano tuned twice a year, and it isn't badly out of tune even then. I add water to the System as needed (varies by season) and Amy does the rest of the maintenance twice a year at the tuning. I'm enjoying playing on a reliably in-tune piano that is quite stable through the seasons, through the dry winter, humid summer, furnace or air conditioning. It was definitely worth it."

The Humidistat is calibrated to control a microenvironment within the piano, cycling between the Humidifier and Dehumidifier, as needed.
