Climatic changes that ultimately lead to drastic alteration in the temperature and moisture content can affect the LCD screens dramatically. Arrangements should be made to protect them from fluctuating temperatures by placing them within a heated LCD enclosure or a cooled LCD enclosure. These LCD enclosures can regulate temperatures and insulate important parts of the hardware from getting damaged. Excess heat during summer months can damage electronic devises as they themselves tend to generate heat due during their operation. The heat generated must be expelled way from the gadget so that it does not over heat. Summer months can be difficult and the screen might stop working unless you have arranged for a weather-proof heated LCD enclosure. During winter the opposite happens, with dropping temperatures and sun freezing weather conditions LCD screens stop working unless there are some heating equipment attached with the LCD enclosure.
