What Does Climate Controlled Storage Mean?


What Does Climate Controlled Storage Mean?

What does climate controlled storage mean and why is it beneficial? Climate controlled units are storage units typically kept within a range of 55 and 85 degrees Fahrenheit. By keeping the unit from reaching extreme high and low climates, you can prevent harm to temperature-sensitive items like electronics and furniture.

At Extra Attic Mini Storage, we provide temperature controlled storage units because we believe your belongings should be safe, secured, and protected from the elements.

A State Of Two Extremes

In Virginia, temperatures are known to range from well below freezing in the winter to over 100 degrees in the summer months. These massive fluctuations in temperature can sometimes damage sensitive belongings that are stored in non-climate controlled environments. Our air-conditioned storage units are kept at a more even temperature, both well above freezing and well below 80 degrees Fahrenheit.

What Can Benefit From Storage Units With Climate Control?

While money can replace things that get damaged in non-controlled units, it cannot replace the memories that came with them. That’s why choosing Extra Attic Mini Storage is the best way to preserve those precious memories in life.

Climate control will protect things like antiques, electronics, and even leather. In fact, the list is almost endless. Some other stuff that storage units with climate control can protect include and are not limited to:

  • Artwork
  • Wooden furniture
  • Clothing
  • Photographs
  • Books and paperwork
  • Bedding and mattresses
  • Sports equipment
  • Musical instruments
  • And more!
