So, you are looking for information on climate controlled self storage units? You have come to the right place. A climate controlled self storage unit stays roughly between 55 and 90 degrees throughout the year. They will typically be used to store temperature sensitive items that the consumer wants to keep in good condition. Some examples of these items would be guitars, pianos and computers. Basically anything that may be damaged by extreme cold or hot temperatures.
Most of these units are inside units and some offer drive up access in order to help keep the temperature controlled units at a stable temperature. As you may know high humidity and high/low temperatures are the common causes for damage of items in storage.
You may be wondering what the differences between climate controlled and humidity controlled units are. Well the difference is very small but very significant. Many times they are both combined into one self storage unit. Now, in order for a storage unit to be classified as a humidity controlled self storage unit, it must be kept at a relative humidity of 55% or less in order to reduce the growth of mold and mildew.
A climate controlled storage facility should keep items from freezing during the winter and scorching during the summer. You will find that these self storage units remain at around 75 degrees Fahrenheit but no more than 90 degrees Fahrenheit during the summer and not fall below freezing during the winter months.
This should help you get an idea of the usefulness of a climate and humidity controlled self storage unit is all about.
