What is climate controlled storage?
- Climate controlled units afford extra protection from flooding and water exposure caused by humidity, rain, and melted snow since they are typically indoors.
- Climate controlled units tend to be cleaner because less dust and dirt get into the interior units compared to standard units.
- The temperature should not fall below freezing in the winter or above 90 degrees F (32 degree C) in the summer. Climate-controlled storage units should keep items in a constant environment (temperatures range between 55 or 60 degrees F and 85 or 90 degrees F). Be sure to check with your storage company for exact specifications for their units.
- Most storage units use indirect heating and cooling systems to maintain air temperature, not individual heaters or air conditioners.
- Climate controlled units are protected from the elements. They are usually located indoors so they are not affected by the effects of rain, snow, dirt and dust, pests or changes in temperatures or humidity. Climate controlled units also protect your items from mold and mildew.
