Before you choose a storage unit, it’s important to consider what you will be storing to ensure the safety, and protection of your items from the elements. Generally, most items will be safe regardless of the temperature. But, when the weather outside is extremely hot or extremely cold, the temperature of your non-climate controlled unit will fluctuate with the weather. If you are storing items that are sensitive to extreme weather conditions, you may want to consider a climate controlled unit.

If you’ve considered placing items in a storage unit for the long-term, you’ve likely thought about what those items will look like in several years. But, did you know that certain valuables or antiques run the risk of damage if you fail to store them at a decent temperature?
Depending on what you are storing, heat can cause major damage in the summer months. But, when it comes to storage, you should also be aware of the risks of storing items at extremely cold temperatures. Temperature extremes can be tough on your stored items, causing them to warp, yellow, crack, or fade. If exposed to extreme temperatures, items such as wood, leather, videotapes, books, records, photographs, and more could be damaged beyond repair.
If you choose to place your items in a climate controlled storage unit, you lessen the risk of damage to your precious belongings. Climate controlled storage units keep temperature and humidity levels constant, which can prevent damage to items stored for the long-term. If you are storing irreplaceable or extremely expensive items, it’s best to choose a climate controlled storage unit!
