Piano Climate Control Devices

A GREENER CHOICE!!
Watt for watt, our dehumidifiers use 1/2 the electricity of the leading brand & we also offer a free liftetime warranty!

Sluggish action - "sticky" keys - tuning instability - rust forming on your strings? Never worry about humidity problems in your piano again! These components are a very inexpensive way to protect your investment. A humidistat and appropriate placement of the dehumidifier(s) have proven to pay for themselves within the first 1-2 years by increasing tuning stability, thereby prolonging the amount of time between regular tunings. This doesn't even begin to describe the other benefits of good climate control; such as retarding sticking keys, discouraging or elminating rust formation on the piano strings and tuning pins, premature metal corrosion of structural hardware (harp/plate shoulder bolts, leg bolts/plates, lyre bolts, trap levers,etc.). As important, by keeping a constant environment for the soundboard and ribs, they both flex properly without risking glue expansion or failure. Retaining a constant climate within the piano will not only help retain value of the instrument, but may well hold off very expensive repairs in the future and encourage optimum accoustics of the piano itself.


5E0915AAutomatic Dual Humidistat - Fully Adjustable
Simply plug your dehumidifier into the humidistat and forget about it. This humidistat will automatically cycle when the relative humidity rises above your preset level (40-50% suggested) and will turn itself off when falling below. Installs easily with two screws (not included) and comes with a lifetime warranty. Unit features an optional outlet for a humidifier*.
*IPS, Inc. strongly advises against the use of any internal piano humidifier as there are much more practical, safer and cost efficient means for increasing ambient humidity within the piano. For those who either have or are considering adding a "piano humidifier" to the instrument, we implore you to talk to us first.
(we advise everyone to educate themselves on the application, wisdom and safety of evaporative systems (humidifiers) - particurlay when placed in a home with children, animals or persons with allergies or other respiratory issues)
