Many people find themselves in need of more storage space than their own homes and garages can provide. Self- storage companies offer a number of different options; including the best of what they can give, climate controlled units that is best in keeping items safe especially during this season.

Climate controlled self- storage may vary significantly depending on the storage unit company. However, it is common for units have a temperature that doesn’t fall below freezing in the winter season or rise above 90 degrees Fahrenheit during the summer. This is to ensure that you are to be informed of the right ways and features to maintain your items’ quality. A major advantage of having climate controlled self-storage is the protection from environmental elements such as snow, rain and the extreme UV rays. Self- storage are usually built above flood level and the roofs are sealed to avoid penetration of such elements. This is actually good news for antique collectors and stacking of musical instruments.

The atmospheric regulation is highly needed in a self-storage unit. When dry air changes into humid, most wood-based furniture pieces are prone to cracks, split and warping through the freezing and thawing cycle. Some self-storage facilities make use of the indirect heating and cooling system to maintain air temperature rather than individual heaters or ACs on each unit. Now that a lot of self- storage facilities build storage units indoors, there is a lesser chance of outside vermin and pests infiltrating the items; plus, a dry and well-conditioned self-storage unit is less prone to invasion of pests.

Many renters believe that getting a self-storage unit gives them peace of mind and preserves the family’s precious heirlooms, antiques and other valuable items that may not survive when stacked in the garage since the value of antiques diminish quickly based on “storage issues.” With climate controlled self-storage units, the possibility damage can be reduced and will be worth the extra expense if you plan on storing your family items for the next generation.
