Well, my PDP-11/44 is kept in an unheated garage (though it does get heat
from the house) that can get plenty hot in the summer, and very cold in the
winter. Prior to my getting it, the /44 sat in Paxton's old Warehouse for
who knows how many years. I think cleanliness is of more importance than
wide temperature changes. Because of this I keep the /44 covered with old
sheets to try and keep most of the dirt out of it.
