The piano life saver

For humidity control we highly recommend the Piano Life Saver system (also known as Dampp-Chaser). It is the ideal solution to the humidity problem. The Piano Life Saver humidity control system for pianos provides a consistent climate, keeping the humidity level constant year round in any climate or environment.

This device works year-round on grand pianos, baby grands and vertical pianos and keeps the piano at a constant 42% humidity. The system is installed out of sight, inside the piano, silent, easy to care for, and works better than anything else available.


How the Piano Life Saver System works


The system is placed directly into the piano and consists of three basic parts:

  • A low wattage heater, which comes on when the moisture in the piano is too high, and keeps the piano from getting too damp.
  • A humidifier, which distributes moisture at the proper amount when the air around the piano becomes too dry.
  • A humidistat, which measures the current humidity level and automatically regulates the heater and the humidifier
