TEMPERATURE-SENSITIVE ITEMS? NO PROBLEM
Climate controlled storage units are a type of storage unit that is kept at a consistent temperature. Rain or shine, winter or summer, these storage units are both heated and cooled when necessary. Got a question about climate controlled storage? We’ve got answers.
What Temperature are Climate Controlled Units Kept?
At Prime Storage, we keep our climate controlled units anywhere between 55 degrees and 80 degrees Fahrenheit. Though temperature may vary within that band, these settings reduce the likelihood of your unit freezing or heating to triple digits.
What are the Benefits of Climate Controlled Storage?
Climate controlled storage has two main benefits over standard storage. First, climate controlled storage units are more comfortable than standard units, making it less of a hassle to organize or move into or out of.
However, the main benefit of climate controlled storage is their ability to protect temperature-sensitive items. Many items can be kept in a storage unit for weeks or months without risk of damage, but that’s not the case for all items. Some items can melt, warp, crack, splinter, or otherwise be damaged by extreme temperatures or rapid changes in temperature.
When Do I Need to Use Climate Controlled Storage?
If you are storing anything valuable—whether it’s of monetary value or sentimental value—you should consider putting it in a climate controlled storage unit for extra protection and peace of mind. Additionally, you should use climate controlled storage if what you’re storing can be damaged by the temperature. Common items include:
- Musical instruments, like guitars, pianos, and violins
- Furniture, especially wooden or leather furniture
- Appliances, electronics, or other things with sensitive electronics
- Artwork, antiques, and other older items
- Makeup, pharmaceuticals, toiletries, and the like
