Heating, Ventilating and Air-Conditioning systems in museums are called to properlycontrol important microclimate parameters, not only for visitors’ wellbeing, but mostlyfor the preservation of works of art. Accordingly, in case of interruptions to Heating,Ventilating and Air-Conditioning systems, due to maintenance interventions ordrawbacks, it is essential to guarantee the acceptable break from service to whichpossible damages for the works of art are related. In this regard, the aim of this work is tointroduce a simple indicator to support curators in regulating the stipulation of contractswith external companies, a more effective management and maintenance of the Heating,Ventilating and Air-Conditioning systems will thus be achieved in order to preserve theworks of art, by integrating into the contracts economic penalties related to the system’sservice break period. The feasibility of this new procedure has been checked by means ofa case study involving the “Museo Regionale” of Palermo (Italy).
