What is Climate-Controlled Storage?

At a self-storage facility, climate control signifies that certain storage compartments are designed to maintain a specific temperature range. This feature safeguards delicate items from severe hot or cold conditions.

What Temperature are Climate-Controlled Storage Units kept at?

At Herrmann's Storage, our climate-controlled units are typically kept within a temperature range of 55 to 80 degrees. This ensures your valuables are protected from extreme temperatures, providing you with peace of mind.

Do You Need Climate-Controlled Storage?

Whether you need a climate-controlled storage unit depends on what items you plan to store. These units are essential if you have sensitive items that could be damaged by extreme temperatures or humidity changes. Items such as antiques, electronics, documents, artwork, fabrics, and medical supplies often require the consistent environment that climate-controlled units provide.

Climate-controlled storage units offer a stable temperature, typically between 55 and 80 degrees, and regulate humidity levels, providing an environment similar to that of your home. They are primarily found in indoor storage facilities, usually within one or multi-story buildings.

However, if you're storing items that would typically be safe in your basement, garage, or shed, then a non-climate-controlled unit may suffice. It's always best to consider the type of items you're storing and their sensitivity to weather and humidity before choosing your storage unit.

Remember, the primary purpose of climate-controlled storage is to provide a consistent, regulated environment that helps protect your belongings from fluctuations in temperature and humidity, offering superior protection and peace of mind.

Items That Need Climate-Controlled Storage

Metal, Wood, and Plastic Items

Throughout the year, the cyclical shift from hot to cold can cause metal, wood, and plastic items to warp. In the absence of a climate-controlled environment, wooden possessions may expand and even crack, while heat can cause CDs, DVDs, and vinyl products to deform.

Clothing and Textile Materials

High humidity can degrade clothing and fabrics by promoting mold and mildew growth. Additionally, prolonged heat exposure can cause color fading. To prevent such damage, it's essential to store these items in a climate-controlled environment where temperature and humidity levels are regulated. This ensures the preservation of your belongings' quality and longevity.

Personal Keepsakes

Irreplaceable items like antiques, family heirlooms, and photographs are susceptible to damage from heat and environmental factors. Heat can cause warping in metal objects and degradation in materials like paper and leather. Humidity can lead to mold growth, while light exposure can result in fading. To maintain their value and aesthetics, such items should be stored in climate-controlled environments where temperature and humidity levels are regulated.

Your Comfort

Climate control is not just for your belongings. If you reside in an area with extreme temperatures or high humidity, moving items to and from your unit could be uncomfortable. Climate-controlled spaces offer a comfortable environment while you handle your possessions.

Climate-Controlled Storage Units FAQs

Is it possible to adjust the temperature in a climate-controlled unit?
No, the temperature in each individual storage unit cannot be altered. All our climate-controlled storage units are maintained within a specific temperature range, between 55 and 80 degrees.

Does climate-controlled storage come at a higher cost?
Indeed, climate-controlled storage tends to be pricier than standard storage units. However, at Extra Space Storage, affordable options for climate-controlled units are available! Our team of storage experts is ready to assist you in finding the best fit for your needs.

Is investing in climate-controlled storage worth it?
The answer depends on your specific circumstances. If you plan to store valuable items that could potentially be damaged by extreme temperatures or humidity - and if they will be exposed to these conditions based on your storage location and timing - then climate-controlled storage is definitely a worthwhile investment.

What temperatures can non-climate-controlled storage units reach?
Storage units with outdoor access (lacking climate control) that are exposed to summer sunlight can become significantly hotter than the outside temperature. If you're storing items sensitive to extreme heat, it's highly recommended to opt for climate-controlled storage.
