What is Climate Controlled Storage?

ideas for storage

Portable storage units in a climate-controlled warehouse are typically kept at temperatures between 55 and 85 degrees Fahrenheit. These storage units are stored in a warehouse or enclosed space to better control the climate with air conditioning and heating systems that provide a consistent, safe storage environment for your belongings. At STORsquare, we have two warehouse options – regular and climate-controlled storage. Both options are secured, well-insulated and safe for short-term and long-term storage, but there are benefits to choosing climate-controlled storage.

What are the Benefits of Climate-Controlled Storage?

The benefits of climate-controlled storage are that it protects your belongings against extreme temperatures and elements such as humidity, which can be very damaging to many of your possessions. STORsquare offers climate controlled storage, most of our competitors do not. Climate controlled storage protects your valuables against damage from:

  • Harsh elements, like rain, snow, and sleet
  • Extreme temperatures, especially in areas that experience all four seasons
  • Mold and mildew
  • Pollen and bugs
  • Dirt and dust
  • Humidity

What if I Don’t Use Climate-Controlled Storage?

Valuables that are left exposed to harsh elements can suffer irreparable damage. When left in an area that isn’t climate controlled, such as in your garage, shed or public storage, your items can experience damage such as:

  • Warping
  • Rust and tarnishing
  • Stains and yellowing
  • Melting
  • Splitting or cracking

How Do I Know if I Need Climate-Controlled Storage?

Climate-controlled storage isn’t necessary for all possessions, but for others, can be critical to keep them in the best shape possible. Materials such as leather, wood, wax and paper, are especially sensitive to fluctuations in temperature. Examples of items that need this storage include:

  • Electronics, such as televisions or computers
  • Leather & wooden furniture
  • Clothing
  • Musical instruments
  • Artwork, from canvas paintings to wax sculptures
  • Household appliances
  • Vinyl records
  • Wine and other alcohol
