3 Advantages of Storing Your Things In Climate Controlled Storage
Climate-controlled storage is highly recommended for sensitive items like antiques, musical instruments, electronics, or fine art.

Temperature control and climate control are often used interchangeably, depending on the storage facility with whom you're speaking, but they're not identical. A real climate-controlled storage unit maintains both temperature and humidity, whereas temperature control merely controls the temperature.

For many various household, commercial, or yard objects, basic self-storage is sufficient. For sensitive things such as antiques, musical instruments, electronics, or fine art, climate-controlled storage is required and highly recommended. However, there are several compelling reasons to choose a climate-controlled storage unit over other storage options.

Extreme-Temperature Protectio

The most obvious reason for choosing a climate-controlled storage container is to protect your belongings from extreme temperature changes, both hot and cold. This crucial element is missing from many self-storage facilities.

Outdoor furniture and boxes of dishes and cookware, for example, are not particularly sensitive to extremes of hot and cold. Large or frequent temperature changes, on the other hand, can harm a variety of objects.

The temperature in climate-controlled storage containers is maintained at a constant level that is above freezing but below 80 or 90 degrees.

The following things are kept in a climate-controlled storage facility:

  • Antiques (particularly wood furniture)
  • Instruments of music
  • Mattresses
  • Magazines and books
  • Electronics
  • Upholstered pieces of furniture
  • Records on vinyl

Excellent air quality

When looking for storage options, it is usual to ignore air quality. A conventional storage unit is not as well-sealed as an indoor climate-controlled unit. The air is kept clean in climate-controlled storage because it is constantly circulated. You won't have to open your unit just to get some clean air.

When it comes to storing sensitive electronics or papers, air quality should be a primary concern.

Dust and pest control 

Dust, debris, and bugs are prevalent in many standard storage facilities. You can also prevent these issues by storing your household goods in a climate-controlled warehouse.

Dusty storage means that many items may need to be cleaned before you can recover your possessions. When storing mattresses, carpets, clothing, and upholstered furniture, dust and poor air quality can be major issues.
