Is it safe to keep a brand new boxed PSU in a closet?

The question itself seems quite absurd and something only a fool would ask, but would keeping a brand new boxed PSU in a closet not mess it up in any way? I literally have no room to store my brand new boxed components and don't really know where else to put them. Reason why I'm asking is because the AC isn't usually on and gets kind of hot here.

If humidity is under control, and if there are no mice present, I can't see why it would hurt the component.

Haha I got a spare PSU (used for watercooling maintenance) under my cupboard since 3 years, 8 years old overall, still rocking 😁

The thing is gets kind of humid here. I make sure to leave the room's door open when I leave for work so that it doesn't get too humid, but it's in a closet.

It's in your house unless you live in a sauna, you're fine.

 

It's a piece of electrical equipment like any other.  

 

It is an absurd question when you think about it.
