The mostly too strong limits of recommendations or museums standards (for example British Standard BS 5454:2000) often provoke too much machinery in museums and depots with the result of contradictory output. Huge air conditioning systems, big energy bills and measuring results with short term peaks endanger the artefacts. Consequences may be that in the future we cannot any longer afford our museums or depots, especially when energy is getting more and more expensive, not mentioning the totally unsolved situation of what might happen in those strongly air conditioned museums when there is a failure in energy supply, for example when no gas is delivered.There are many museums however, with none or a minimum of building services, which shelter very delicate artefacts as the “Stift Klosterneuburg” with its “altar of Verdun” of the year 1180. Climate control was never installed, but the altar has no damages at all.
