You want your items to be safe in storage. You don’t want to come back in six months to find them damaged by temperature and humidity. While for many items, traditional storage may suffice, other items need special, climate-controlled storage.

What Is Climate Controlled Storage?

Climate controlled storage units are kept at a constant temperature regardless of fluctuations with the weather. It’s like air conditioning for your storage unit. Additionally, these often have humidity control, as ours do. Without temperature control, you may need to make special preparations so the items in your unit don’t get damaged.

These units are more expensive than traditional ones, but they are perfect for more sensitive items. You’ll also have more peace of mind, knowing that your belongings are kept where they can’t be damaged by the temperature.

Items That Benefit From Climate Control

  • Wooden and leather furniture
  • Electronics (also DVDs, CDs, etc.)
  • Medicine
  • Books, magazines, and paperwork
  • Artwork
  • Collectables
  • Musical Instruments
  • Appliances
  • Photos/film
  • Fabric/upholstery
  • Candles

Items That Don’t Need Climate Control

  • Lawn Furniture
  • Glass
  • Clothing in plastic bins
  • Bikes
  • Wheelchairs
  • Motorcycles

Other Factors to Consider

  • How long the item will be in storage
  • What the weather is like (for instance, in Tennessee, the weather varies a lot, making climate-controlled units more necessary)
