While traditional storage units are a great option for keeping your belongings safe, The Storage Place offers both non-climate controlled and climate controlled storage units. Depending on what you are storing and for how long you need storage, you may want to consider climate-controlled self storage. To help you decide whether climate control or non-climate control is best for you, we’ll explain how climate control works and the type of belongings that typically require a climate-controlled environment.
Regular storage units are normally not climate controlled. Therefore, when you store your items in a regular storage unit, the temperature inside your unit is influenced by outdoor elements. If it’s cold outside, the temperature inside your unit is colder. Similarly, in the warmer months, the temperature will climb in your unit as the temperature rises outside.
On the other hand, climate-controlled self storage ensures that your belongings are kept in a unit that is regulated by a thermostat to stay in a range between 50 to 85 degrees. This range can vary, so double check with the self storage facility first. Regardless, your belongings will be stored in much milder temperatures than they would be in a regular unit that is subject to outdoor temperature fluctuation.
Some of your belongings can tolerate the fluctuating temperatures and the highs and lows. Other items are not recommended to be stored in these conditions, including:
It also depends how long and when you plan to store your belongings. If you are renting a unit for a month in the spring or fall, when temperatures are usually milder, you may not need to invest in climate-controlled storage. However, you might want to consider climate control during cold winter or hot summer months.
