Climate controlled self storage facilities give renters full control over the temperature and humidity levels in their units. The last thing that you want is for something to happen to your belongings.
Standard units are sufficient for many renters, particularly those who are in the market for short-term storage. However, if you are planning to rent long-term or are planning to store sensitive items, you will want to think about renting a climate controlled unit. Here are just a few of the key benefits that you get with a climate controlled self storage unit.
Climate controlled self storage offers protection from the natural elements
Climate controlled self storage units are located inside buildings with insulated and sealed walls, roofs, and floors. As such, this feature helps the dirt accumulation to be far less than storage in regular units. The interior location also makes units less of a target for insects and rodents.
Climate controlled self storage offers protection from extreme temperatures
In Amarillo, during the summer, it isn’t unusual for the daytime temperatures to reach or exceed 100 degrees Fahrenheit on a daily basis. Needless to say, these temperatures are detrimental for many types of personal belongings. Having control of the temperature in your self storage unit allows you to maintain temperatures between 55 and 85 degrees Fahrenheit. This feature eliminates extreme temperatures that ruin furniture.
Climate controlled self storage offers superior air quality
As mentioned previously, climate controlled units have a level of sealing and insulation that you don’t get with standard storage units. Climate controlled units also undergo constant air circulation to keep the area clean and reduces the dust. Whether you have left your belongings in storage for a week or a year, you will come back to find them exactly the way that you left them.
Many people who are storing an entire household will utilize both regular storage and climate control. They place more valuable and temperature sensitive items in Climate Control and outdoor furniture, storeroom items, lawn equipment etc. into regular storage.
Finally, keep in mind that there is no “one size fits all” self storage solution for everyone. The large standard unit that works well for one renter may be a terrible fit for the next renter. Be realistic about your needs and don’t skimp on size or features. It is worth it to pay extra for individual temperature and humidity controls when you know it will protect your belongings.
