Would you like your piano to stay in tune for as long as possible after it is serviced? Then a humidity control system is a good investment to make. Whether you have a small upright piano or a 9-foot concert grand, Gress Piano Service can install a humidity control system directly into your piano, helping to protect your investment from harmful humidity fluctuations.
Why Does Humidity Matter?
Changes in temperature and humidity are the biggest reasons why pianos go out of tune. As the seasons change, the relative humidity around your piano can fluctuate drastically. This can cause the wooden soundboard in your piano to swell and shrink throughout the year, changing the tension of the strings and causing the piano to go out of tune.
In addition, humidity fluctuations can cause serious structural damage to pianos over time. Wooden components of the piano can begin to warp, or even crack. Metal components can begin to rust. This can result in thousands of dollars spent on repairs.
How to Control It?
Gress Piano Service is a certified installer of the Piano Life Saver system. This is a humidity control system that is installed directly into your piano. Other humidity control solutions, such as full-home or full-room climate control, can involve costly home renovations and high energy bills. The Piano Life Saver system provides humidity control for your piano with minimal energy consumption.
This is a low-cost, low-maintenance option for preserving the tuning stability of your piano. Just leave the power cord plugged in. That's it! The included humidistat automatically turns the system on and off when needed. It isn't visible (except for the power cord), and it's totally silent.
Available for upright pianos and grand pianos.

This is the ultimate protection for your piano: a humidifier/dehumidifier combination system. The included humidistat automatically regulates the system to maintain healthy humidity levels. An indicator-light panel shows when it's time to add more water.
This bundle comes with a special watering can, a set of humidifier pads, and a concentrated liquid treatment for the water basin.
