An alternative you might consider is a small A/C unit, especially if
high temperatures aren't common where you are.  Around here it's rare
to see a roadside cabinet without one.

Depending on where you are you might also find you need heat, since
it's even harder to find components specified for below-freezing than
for high temperatures.  (I was also reminded that heat is helpful if
your equipment will occasionally be powered down or under a light
load, because as it cools down there can be condensation.)
