When you are moving out of your home, you may have a gap of time between when your old home sells and your new one is available. During this time, many people stay with friends or family or take an extended vacation. However, your belongings need somewhere to go. Storage is the perfect place to store your belongings until your new home is ready. But when you go to rent a unit, you will learn that some are climate controlled, while others are not. Learning the benefits of a climate controlled facility can help you determine if it is best for your items.


They Are Temperature Controlled

One of the benefits of a climate controlled storage facility is that they are temperature controlled. This is a huge benefit, as it can get cold in the winters and hot in the summer. This can have an impact on the items you are storing. Extreme temperatures can cause leather to crack, stored wine to become spoiled or destroy canvas art pieces. When items are in a temperature controlled setting, this does not occur.


Humidity Levels are Controlled

Another benefit of a temperature controlled storage facility is that your humidity levels are controlled. Humidity is basically moisture in the air. And when there are high levels of moisture in the air, items in your storage locker can absorb the moisture. This can cause wood to warp or rot, clothing and textiles to develop mold or mildew, or leather to crack. This is a not concern in a temperature controlled facility as they maintain a safe and low humidity level.


They Are Indoors

The last benefit to temperature controlled storage facilities is most are located indoors. This means there is less chance of someone breaking into your unit, and less likelihood of dealing with pests, such as ants, cockroaches, and mice. Additionally, many people prefer to load and unload their belongings in an indoor unit, as it helps them maintain their body temperature as they complete this task.
