Protecting Pianos

From the Dampp Chaser website:

The Piano Life Saver System from Dampp-Chaser Corporation is sold by piano technicians and piano dealers throughout the world. To activate the 5-Year Warranty for the System, it must be installed in the piano by a professional piano technician.


 
The cost of the System will vary according to the System required for the particular piano you own and the per-hour labor rate of technicians in your area. Typically, a Grand System will range from $550 to $650. A System for larger Grands may cost upwards of $800. To achieve pitch stability for Grands, in environments with extreme air movement may require the installation of a Grand Undercover J which is an additional cost. An installed Upright System starts at about $500 although some Steinway Uprights and player pianos require a special Backside System which starts at about $700.

From the Interfaith Coalition on Energy:

We think it is also helpful to purchase or make a quilt that covers the piano to the floor, so that temperature fluctuations are minimized.  From one website that sells such covers:
