Another reason to keep a stable humidity/temperature environment has to do with the fine print on many used/new piano sales guarantees/warranties.  The piano is often only valid on certain parts of the warranty if its not exposed to extremes in humidity or temperature.  On a complaint, if they assess that the piano was exposed to these extremes (eg. they take a reading with a hygrometer/thermometer) the piano owner can find themselves out of luck on them honouring the warranty.
