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

Why Choose Climate-Controlled Storage?
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 certain valuables or antiques run the risk of damage if they aren’t stored at a decent temperature?
Depending on what you’re storing, heat and humidity can cause major damage in the summer. There is also a risk with 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.
Benefits of Climate-Controlled Storage in the Winter
Winter is ideal for storing your belongings in a climate-controlled storage facility. You’ll protect them from the elements while keeping them accessible if you need them.
Some benefits of climate-controlled winter storage include:
- Additional barrier from dust and debris
- No damage from freeze-and-thaw cycles
- You can store liquid items
- Fine art and other valuables protected from extreme temperatures
- Protection from rodents and pests
Protect Your Belongings With Climate-Controlled Storage
If you place your items in a climate-controlled storage unit, you reduce the risk of damage. Climate-controlled storage units keep temperature and humidity levels constant, which can prevent damage to items stored for the long term. If you’re storing irreplaceable or extremely expensive items, it’s best to choose a climate-controlled storage unit.
