Many churches with historical organs have heating systems. How a church is heated can be a significant cause of damage to historical instruments. This is why certain requirements must apply to heating systems, especially after an organ restoration.

What effects does a heating system have on wooden instruments? How could a way of heating not dangerous to such instruments be devised?

It is best for the organ if the space in which it stands is not heated at all. If it is heated, then it is recommended that the difference between the base temperature and the heated temperature be kept as slight as possible and that this difference be slowly balanced out. We have employed Marc Stappers of the Cultural Heritage Agency of the Netherlands as an expert assessor in such questions. He has a deep and extensive knowledge of the best ways of heating in different situations.

It regularly occurs that building work is carried out within a space that also contains an organ. The dust that results represents a danger for the organ. How can it be protected from this? To address this question, we’ve drawn up a report consisting of extensive, detailed recommendations on how to protect your organ from building dust.
