Dampp-Chaser®, Piano Life Saver System,

Auckland has a relatively humid climate. This is not good for pianos. The action may get sticky/sluggish or heavy due to expanded felts, woods and cloths in the piano action. Metal parts especially strings may get rust if climate in the piano is at a high humidity level.

Even in dry climates and centrally-heated rooms, the humidifier functions are invaluable. My experience is that tuning stability and piano tone is improved with the use of a Dampp-Chaser®, Piano Life Saver System, as the piano is operating in the correct climate.
