Benefits of Climate Controlled Self Storage

With many areas in the country rising above 100 degrees in the summer and dropping below freezing in the winter, sensitive items can be warped, cracked, torn, and ultimately degraded when stored in a non-climate controlled environment. Investing in a climate-controlled storage unit for your belongings will end up saving you a lot of money and time without the need for replacing or repairing damaged items.

Here’s a list of common mishaps you can avoid with a climate-controlled unit:

  • Warped, cracked or torn wood
  • Mold and mildew
  • Rusting and erosion of metal
  • Expanding or contracting of items from heat exposure

In addition to seeking climate-controlled self-storage for protection against the elements, we recommend considering these units if you’re storing items for an extended period of time. When storing things for longer than a few months, you should consider how weather conditions could change with humidity and temperature.

A common misconception related to climate-controlled self-storage is that it’s standard for these units to have 24/7 air conditioning and heating to supplement weather conditions. In reality, most climate-controlled self-storage units are thoroughly sealed, will typically maintain temperatures between 55-85 degrees Fahrenheit, and will also maintain humidity levels. In addition to regulating temperature and humidity, these units ensure the flow of fresh air to prevent that musty smell commonly associated with self-storage units. Air quality is crucial when storing sensitive items like electronics and other appliances that can be damaged by contaminants and dust.
