Do I Need a Climate Controlled Storage Unit?
Benefits of Controlled Temperature Storage
- It protects from temperature fluctuations.
Here in Brentwood, CA temperatures can climb pretty high in the summer. Even the winter nights can get quite cold. These fluctuating and extreme temperatures can damage items that you have in storage. Wooden furniture can split, antiques can crack and musical instruments can warp without climate control. A temperature controlled storage unit can help keep your belongings out of the heat and in a comfortable environment.
- Better air quality.
Because temperature controlled units are sealed differently than standard storage units and continuously circulate air, the air quality remains clean and fresh. This is a great benefit for items like electronics and documents that need to be kept in clean conditions.
- You get an extra barrier from debris.
To better control the temperature, climate controlled units typically have insulated walls, roofs and floors. This makes them less vulnerable to flooding, dirt and pests. Between the added barrier and the improved air quality, it also means less dust when you’re ready to pull any items out of storage.
- Additional peace of mind.
While a temperature controlled storage unit typically costs more than standard storage, the cost isn’t comparable to the peace of mind you’ll get, knowing that your belongings are protected from seasonal temperature changes and debris issues.
Items that should be kept in climate controlled storage
- Digital discs – DVDs, CDs, Blu-ray and video games.
- Paper – books and documents.
- Wooden and leather furniture.
- Musical instruments.
- Vinyl records.
- Family heirlooms.
- Sporting equipment.
