Placing Your Piano
Piano location is critical to both the performance and longevity of the instrument. While pianos require ventilation it is important that they get the right kind of ventilation. Avoid exposure to outside weather conditions such as exterior doors and windows. Most modern homes have adequate insulation where the piano may be placed on an outside wall.
Direct sunlight, humidity and sudden temperature changes are detrimental to the instruments and may damage them both internally and externally. Sources of heat such as radiators and hot air registers should also be avoided. They may cause damage to the finish and internal parts affecting tone and performance.
