CLIMATE CONTROL: PROTECT SENSITIVE ITEMS IN SELF STORAGE/(Excerpt from Easy Storage Blog Post)
Are you worried about extreme temperatures damaging your delicate or valuable items in self storage? With climate control, you can get peace of mind that your belongings are well-protected.
When a storage facility offers storage units with climate control, this means that the unit maintains a storage environment between the temperatures of 55 and 80 degrees at all times of the year. These units are typically available with enclosed, indoor access to ensure the utmost protection from the elements.WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF CLIMATE CONTROL?
Whether it's 100-degree heat or below-freezing cold, extreme temperature changes can severely damage sensitive items kept in a non-regulated environment. With indoor storage that's climate-controlled, your items are better protected from these extreme conditions.Prevents Costly Damage to Your Belongings
Even though climate-controlled storage units cost more than standard storage units, the money you'll save on replacing or repairing damaged items is invaluable. Climate control can do the following:
- Keep wooden items from warping, cracking, or tearing
- Prevent yellowing or degradation of leather and fabrics
- Ward off mildew, mold, and pests
- Reduce chances of rust, corrosion, and weakening with metal items
- Protect electrical components of electronic devices
Personal Comfort & Peace of Mind. A climate-controlled unit doesn't just provide a protective environment for your belongings. It also makes visiting your storage unit on hot and cold days more comfortable. In addition, because most storage units with climate control are located inside a storage facility (rather than accessible outdoors), there's another layer of privacy and safety for you and your stored items.DO YOU NEED CLIMATE CONTROL?
Whether or not you need self storage with climate control depends a lot on where you live in the country. If you live in a region that experiences all four seasons or a region that sees temperatures drop below 32 degrees or rise above 80 degrees, you may want to consider climate control.
