Climate-Controlled Storage Units
At Storage Sense, we provide safe, easy-to-access climate-controlled storage units. Our climate-controlled storage solutions deliver numerous benefits designed to meet your specific storage requirements. Check out this guide to help you better understand the benefits of climate-controlled storage units.
What are Climate-Controlled Storage Units?
Climate-controlled storage units are specialized storage spaces that maintain consistent temperature and humidity levels, regardless of external conditions. This feature is particularly beneficial when storing sensitive items that can be damaged by extreme temperatures, significant temperature fluctuations, or changes in humidity, such as wooden furniture, electronics, fine art, wines, and important documents.
Difference Between Temperature-Controlled and Climate-Controlled Storage Units: Which Should I Choose?
While the terms “temperature-controlled” and “climate-controlled” are often used interchangeably in the storage industry, they refer to two slightly different features. Temperature-controlled storage units maintain a stable temperature, protecting items from extreme heat or cold but do not control humidity.
Climate-controlled units, on the other hand, control both temperature and humidity, offering a more stable environment and preventing issues like warping, cracking, mildew, and mold. The choice between the two depends on what you’re storing. If your items are sensitive to humidity and temperature, a climate-controlled unit is the better option. If you’re uncertain, our team at Storage Sense is always available to help you choose the best solution for your needs.
Benefits of Climate-Controlled Storage Units
- Temperature and Humidity Control: Our climate-controlled units maintain a steady temperature and humidity level, protecting your belongings from damage due to heat, cold, or moisture.
- Versatility: We offer a variety of climate-controlled storage unit sizes to accommodate your unique storage needs.
- Enhanced Protection: Climate-controlled storage units are typically located inside a building, adding an additional layer of security and protection from outside elements.
- Dust and Pest Control: Since these units are typically located inside, they are less likely to have issues with dust and pests compared to outdoor units.
Common Reasons for Choosing Climate-Controlled Storage Units
- Preserving Sensitive Items: Climate-controlled storage units are perfect for items sensitive to temperature or humidity changes, such as electronics, art, musical instruments, and important documents.
- Business Needs: These units are ideal for businesses with temperature and humidity-sensitive inventory, like cosmetics, medical supplies, and fine wines.
- Long-Term Storage: For items that will be stored for a prolonged period, a climate-controlled storage unit can provide a stable environment to mitigate the risk of damage.
- Seasonal Storage: These storage units are perfect for storing seasonal items that could be damaged by heat, cold, or humidity, such as holiday decorations or off-season clothing.
What Items Can I Store in my Climate-Controlled Storage Unit?
From electronics and fine art to important documents, our climate-controlled units provide a stable, secure environment for a range of items. Here are some examples of what you can safely store:
- Electronics: Computers, audio equipment, vintage radios, and TVs.
- Collectibles: Fine art, comic books, vintage toys, and wine.
- Sensitive Documents: Business documents, archival papers, photos, and books.
- Musical Instruments: Stringed instruments, brass instruments, pianos, and drums.
Remember: While climate-controlled storage units are suitable for many types of items, certain goods such as perishables, hazardous materials, and illegal items are not permitted. If you have questions about what you can store, our team at Storage Sense is ready to assist.
