If you move a piano from a relatively high humidity situation into a home where the humidity is running about 50% on average, should I use the Dampp Chaser right away? Can you "dry" a piano out too quickly? I didn't realize just how warm those dehumidifiers get! They are pretty warm and I'm wondering if it is better to let the piano acclimate more gradually. It is a Model H4 humidistat if that helps. Does anyone know where I can find the manual for the H4? I can't find it on the Dampp Chaser website.

Also, should you have water in the tank during the summer months in the south when the humidity is already high? Do I have to see that blinking yellow light all summer??
