If you are looking to place belongings into a storage unit, you have a big decision to make. You have to decide whether to place them in a regular unit that may be susceptible to outside temperatures or pay a bit more for a climate controlled storage unit. Learning the benefits of a climate controlled unit may help you decide if it is worth it to you. Here are a few of those benefits.
Your Belongings are Protected From Extreme Temperatures
One of the major benefits to a climate controlled storage unit is that your belongings are protected against extreme temperatures. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can cause items like leather to rip, damage stored wine, dry wood out or damage sensitive photographs. A climate controlled unit is set at about the same temperature year round, offering these belongings the same temperatures they are used to when they are inside of a home.
Climate Controlled Units Offer Protection Against Humidity
If you live in a humid area, climate controlled storage units can be beneficial. Humidity is moisture in the air. And items placed in storage, like sofas and clothes, can soak up this moisture. This can cause mold or mildew to form on the items or discolor the color of the fabric. You want your item to come out of storage in the same condition it went in as, and a climate controlled unit helps that to happen.
The Air Quality is Better
The last benefit to a climate controlled storage unit is that the air quality is typically better in climate controlled units. Climate controlled units are indoors, rather than outdoors. They are enclosed and the air is circulated to keep the temperature inside warm or cool. This means that less dirt, dust and debris is floating around in the air. When your belongings are stored outdoors, they can become covered in a pile of dirt or dust. This can cause stains on white or light colored items and require you to carefully clean your items when they come out of storage. But you don't have to worry about that with climate controlled units.
