The Importance of Climate Control

When it comes to climate control and self-storage units, having the ability to adjust temperature is paramount to the protection and safety of many types of items. Both heating in the winter and cooling in the summer controls temperature fluctuations that can cause condensation and other harmful conditions that can damage stored items. Items subject to damage can be anything from electronics to antiques. Here are some items to consider renting a climate-controlled storage for.

Your Items

There are a number of items that should be kept in temperature-controlled rooms to avoid moisture build up, drying, damage etc. Here are the types of items that must remain in moderate temperatures.

Wooden and upholstered furniture – avoiding drying, shrinking, cracking from cold temperatures and swelling and warping from hot temperatures. Reduce chances of mildew and mold and keep your furniture in tip-top shape!

Electronics – Computers, gaming consoles, music systems and other electronic gadgets are delicate and need to be kept in neutral temperatures to avoid moisture. This also includes any household appliances.

Photography, Paintings and Drawings – any kind of art is subject to damage from exposure from excessive temperatures. Protect your sentimental and monetary valued artwork by storing your artwork in a safe, climate-controlled self-storage unit.

Comic book collections / Sports and Stamp Collections – similarly to photography, excessive temperatures can damage and ruin the print on comic books, sports cards and stamps. Keep your collections safe by packing them away safely into a climate-controlled self-storage unit!

Important Documents – Files, documents and other types of paperwork must be kept in a moderate temperature-controlled room to keep them safe from moisture build-up.

Textiles – Finally any long-term storage of clothing, bedding, quilts or other types of textiles like rugs, must not be exposed to any drastic temperature changes.
