There is now abundant built evidence that archives can sustain a moderate relative humidity and temperature by warming, or by dehumidifying. Four examples of museum storage buildings, of diverse purpose, size and location, show adequate climatic stability without air conditioning. However, it is not possible without air conditioning to conform with the strict temperature limits recommended in the widely used British Standard BS5454:2000, which, though an advisory standard, is often used as a building specification. The strictness of this standard is not supported by evidence for chemical or physical damage if its limits are exceeded, yet deference to it hinders the building of low energy archives which are tolerant of loss of power and neglect.
