Happy new year to everyone! Its getting colder now. Where I have my grand the temperature is 18-20 degrees above. Is this ok for the instrument? The humidity level is ok. Happy for an answer. Very best/Niklas

As I understand it, the important thing is the humidity. If indeed the humidity is ok, you should be alright. But how do you know that the humidity is ok? Do you have a good hygrometer? Bear in mind also that it is important that the humidity should be reasonably constant.

Good afternoon David!

I have a humidity-machine which adds humidity and then a hygrometer.

Itīs changing between 40-56% . Do you think its ok?

There we're two days when it was like 37% because it was some degrees below outside, so therefor I bought one machine more for next cold days I will use both!

Kind regards Niklas

In another post and from the Steinway manual they suggest 30Pt spread would be considered excess.
