The indoor climate in a number of Scandinavian historic buildings such as churches, castles and manor houses deviates considerably from climate recommendations given for museums. Nonetheless, these buildings accommodate fragile and valuable movable and immovable objects. In the present article, a brief literature review of the risk of mechanical damages to art objects caused by fluctuations in temperature and relative humidity is given. Two cases are presented to illustrate the problems with indoor climates that deviates from common standards. The two cases were chosen because they are interesting from an energy saving perspective. The first case is an intermittently heated church in northern Sweden, typical for a Scandinavian rural church used only for services. The second case is a completely unheated building with an indoor climate closely following the fluctuations of the outdoor climate, including sub-zero temperatures in winter. The research about mechanical damages is discussed with reference to these cases. Two areas are identified where more research is needed. There is limited knowledge on the correlation between a fluctuating indoor climate and the risk of mechanical damages, i.e. the rate of temperature and relative humidity changes. Secondly, the knowledge of how low temperatures affect the risk of mechanical damages is inadequate.
