Kommentare Keeping figures in the attic?

  • Chloe-tsundere The louise otaku
    I have figures in my attic for many years and they've been fine :) so wouldnt worry

    But here it's not that hot :) only during summers 30-35 at most

    As you say you are moving to the attic and making it your new bedroom, that pretty much indicates that it is temperate enough up there for humans to exist in. I honestly think if you are comfortable being there, it's fine for figures. Believe it or not, they are much more durable than we give them credit for.

    ChocolateSpiderVor 8 Tagen#95198803I personally would not recommend it. I tried that in my early years owning figures and a lot of them got badly warped due to heat. I managed to somewhat fix them by re-heating and cooling them and adjusting things back into position, but the warping was still obvious. If you are somewhere that doesn't get too hot and your attic has good ventilation, perhaps it may be ok.

    I live in ireland so moisture is more of a concern but ive been able to deal with it well, only in the last few years summer has become more of a nuisance. The attic has good ventilation but i wanna add more safeguards just incase.

    figuresukiVor 8 Tagen#95199748Living in the UK i guess our climate is similar
    You say it's insulated, we recently insulated our loft space so we can store stuff up there.
    Before adding insulation the loft space was about 45 degrees in the summer with the rest of the house at about 30 on hot days
    With the insulation it should keep the whole house cooler, the difference in the loft space being about 15 degrees from the roof itself on hot days.
    So it depends on the insulation.
    I will be storing some prize figures and cheaper items in the loft while we rework some of the house space but won't put any scales up there until I am sure the space wont get very hot in the summer.
    Might just be worth having somewhere else in the house you can pack away figures if it starts getting to warm in the loft space or have a portable AC you can use on the very hot days but going to be hard to tell until the warm weather comes.


    I have only a small amount of scales so i might test with a few of my prize figures, ill be able to safely store my figures in my current room just in case aswell.
    Im currently looking at ACs though as a few have said itll help. I know its too early to tell regarding heat but im just planning in advance xd

    CakeZillaVor 8 Tagen#95195928It gets quite warm up there and im currently looking at fans like dyson etc to help just incase along with open windows aswell. What kinda ac can you reccomend?
    A single room unit should be enough.

    Get a window AC if you're worried about the heat. That way you can take it out in the winter to keep the heat in. Also, Dyson fans are cool, but they're extremely overpriced. You can make do with a simple floor fan for $20, but that's just going to circulate the hot air, not actually cool anything, so the window AC is your best bet.

    BOOTPVor 8 Tagen#95195790I have had no issues in doing this and it gets hot and old throughout the year on a sporadic basis here in the UK. However, all figure boxes are inside large plastic storage containers with lids. Worth a check up there every so often but you should do that anyway.

    Ill be using the attic as my new bedroom, so keeping an eye on them will be no problem! Just worried as the heat has increased the last few years and i tend to overthink things. Ill be storing the figure boxes in containers though once ikea reopens xd

    dumbchihuahuaVor 8 Tagen#95195065It will mostly depend on the house but if it gets warm up there like an oven I can't see that being good for your figures. I lived on an attic floor in a house in Germany and since the house was masonry stone, it never was warm inside. If it gets toasty in summer try ventilating with a fan or invest in an air conditioning unit. The heat in some attics can be intense.
