If one is considering using a different tuning temperament style than the standard, is it wise to do it after the piano has settled in or is it wise to do it while the piano is still 'young'?

Is it recommended to stick to a particular temperament and not change? Or is it perfectly fine to change the tuning from time to time?

Fine to change. I change to a different temperament every time I tune mine.
